The Executive Brainstorm uses a unique interactive format called ‘Mindshare’. Each section of the event involves short, specially prepared presentations (new research, case studies, use cases) to stimulate group brainstorming, which is then reviewed by a panel to inform a vote on ‘next steps’. Our expert facilitators are supported by interactive technology to enable a uniquely productive debate. Register here:

How can telcos bring them all together?
We are seeing a future where service enablers for the ‘Internet of Things’ will open up new cross-sector service opportunities. Telcos already have highly valuable latent assets and capabilities that can help optimise these opportunities for everyday business use: identification and authentication, marketing, digital product distribution, payments, security and customer service. New research indicates there is strong demand for this, if telcos can create attractive platforms.
- How should telcos develop these assets and capabilities?
- What use cases are most compelling to enterprises, both now and longer term?
- What value would telco platforms bring to the ‘digital economy’?
