The CTO Telecom Summit successfully kicked off yesterday in Scottsdale, Arizona with an afternoon golf tournament, evening gala dinner, and opening welcome address by the event’s Master of Ceremonies Dick LeFave, Independent Telecommunications & IT Professional, D&L Partners, LLC & Former CIO, Sprint Nextel.
Today, the first full day of the technology event, began with a networking breakfast and will continue with a full day of educational sessions, including keynote presentations, thought-leadership sessions, open forums, and executive vision panel discussions. Technology topics covered on today’s agenda include outsourcing, next generation services, the foundations of customer experience, the future of 4G and migration to the cloud.
The much anticipated thought-leadership session, “Beyond Outsourcing and Off Shore: A Success Case Study Of HCL And Being More Than A Labor Factory,” will outline how telecom companies can turn outsourcing providers into strategic partners. Presented by an HCL Technologies executive, the session will outline HCL’s relationship with T-mobile, and how the company was able to reduce T-mobile’s time to market and deliver strategic projects.
