ETIS Members met in Stockholm this week to share knowledge at the ETIS Community Gathering 2010. The Gathering was held in conjunction with the 40th Management board hosted by TeliaSonera. This highly successful event brought together 153 participants from 54 companies to share knowledge on key ICT issues facing the Telecom industry.
The Gathering began with a common session on the topic of ‘The Future of Telecom Services – How to stay relevant in a 2.0 world'. The session looked the future of Telecom services, with an emphasis on how service providers can position themselves to get the full value out of their next generation network investments, as well as how to monetize new services, applications and partnerships. The keynote presentation was made by Lars Nyberg, CEO of TeliaSonera who outlined his ‘One Company’ strategy with an emphasis on world class customer service.
The remainder of the Gathering was dedicated to parallel sessions for the following working groups: Information Security, Enterprise Architecture, Billing, Procurement & Vendor Management, Business Intelligence & Data Warehouse and Customer Self Service. The Gathering also featured a CIO Stream that covered the topics of Next Generation Networks, using and offering Cloud services as well as architecture and anti-trust issues.
This Gathering was an ideal opportunity for all of the members, associates, partners and working groups to get to know one another, learn about each other's activities, plans and expectations and above all, share knowledge.
