Each year the ETIS Community Gathering brings together European telecommunication professionals to share knowledge and best practices in a trusted environment. The theme of the ETIS Community Gathering 2017 is ‘Shaping the Digital Ecosystem of the Future’.

 

Because of the ongoing digital transformation and newly emerging disruptive technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, IoT, SDN/NFV and 5G, telecom operators need to take important decisions.

At the same time these disruptive technologies will allow new players and other industries to play a role in the value chain. The jury is still out on how the new ecosystems will be shaped and who will play which role in them.  Therefore we want to have an open debate with the involved parties and industries on what the opportunities and challenges are. We will get the view of opinion leaders, other industries and OTT players throughout the Gathering.

 

We believe Estonia, the first country to allow online voting in a general election, is a perfect place for a debate on the ‘Digital Ecosystem of the Future’. It has the world’s fastest broadband speeds and holds the record for start-ups per person. Its 1.3 Million citizens pay with their mobile phones, have their health records stored in the digital cloud, and file their annual tax return online in 5 min. Moreover Estonia will be holding the presidency of the EU council in the second half of 2017. Therefore we will invite relevant parties and start-ups to discuss lessons learned in e-Estonia.
