• 8th Telco Strategies Conference

    Get real or go home: digital transformation
    reality check for telecoms players

OVERVIEW

The telecoms and IT sectors are on a collision course as we hurtle towards the cloud-based 5G/IoT digital economy. We’re told that by 2020 the industry will have changed beyond recognition, but as we get closer to 2020, the more that schedule looks at best ambitious and at worst unrealistic for telecoms players – not because they can’t make the shift, but because it may not be necessary to make the shift that massive that fast.

This summit provides a reality check for telcos formulating their evolution strategies. Put another way, do you REALLY need 5G up and running by 2020? And does everything have to be in the cloud by then?

Themed "Get real or go home: digital transformation reality check for telecoms players", the 8th Annual Telco Strategies 2017 will help industry players cut past the hype and set priorities on where they should focus their transformation efforts.

This year's Summit will highlight presentations and case studies on TWO key themes:
1) Capitalizing On The Digital World
2) Looking Into The Telecom Crystal Ball: What’s In Store For The Next 5 Years

The conference is followed by the 20th Annual Telecom Asia Awards – the region’s longest-running and most prestigious telecom industry awards.
