Warsaw, Poland, 2012/04/19 - Frost & Sullivan, in cooperation with Amdocs, will investigate innovative strategies and systems for ensuring future growth, profits and customer satisfaction at a Warsaw conference, 10 May.
The European telecom market has been changing rapidly. Development in areas like smart grids, m-health, and mobile finance mean the future of industries as far ranging as utilities and health care is now greatly tied to evolution in telecommunications technology. The consumer mobile industry is also not immune to these changes. Operators have to adjust their strategies in the era of over-the-top-providers to seek out new revenue streams and partnership models.
In the context of this rapid change, Frost & Sullivan, in partnership with Amdocs, is organizing a conference entitled "Service Provider Innovation in the Smartphone Era," to be held in the Radisson Blu Centrum hotel, May 10th, in Warsaw, Poland. This conference will explore the market situation of today and tomorrow, investigate service provider strategies, and discuss how technology infrastructure can help operators implement those strategies.
"In the era of smartphones, large-volume data and threats from over-the-top providers, opportunities are still abound for service providers to monetise data and generate new revenues from areas such as LTE rollout, machine-2-machine, mobile payments, 4G data services and near field communications," comments Frost & Sullivan Vice President ICT EMEA, Daniel Shepherd. "Service providers who can capitalise on these opportunities and realise the full potential of the connected world by developing new business models and selling innovative & revenue generating services are the ones who will continue to win."
The Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region has historically been buffered from the pace of technology change, as the same strategies developed in Western Europe and other global economies could simply be applied when change comes to CEE. This is no longer the case. The technology leapfrog effect means that economies like Lithuania, Poland, and Belarus are among the first to adopt 4G LTE technology, and operators in this region can no longer afford a wait-and-see approach to developing their 4G strategy.
Targeting an audience of strategy and technology executives in the CEE region, this conference will investigate local trends and their impact on OSS and BSS systems. The conference will also feature discussion on how new market changes will affect service provider IT infrastructure and how service providers can stimulate data usage and employ strategies to monetise data more effectively. Moreover, participants will be able to learn about the key innovations that service providers must bring to drive future revenues, and ensure customer satisfaction including LTE rollout, machine to machine (M2M) and 4G data services.
Do not miss out on this opportunity to share ideas on these, and other topics, during a day of stimulating discussion and analysis with some of the industry’s most insightful players.
The conference participation is complimentary. Limited seats are available. If you would like to learn more about the event or you are interested in participation, please contact Joanna Lewandowska, Corporate Communications. Please include your full contact details in the query.
