Event Highlights

FOCUS ON WHAT SERVICE PARTNERSHIPS MEAN TO OPERATORS TODAY

How have services partnerships changed over the last 10 years? What are operators looking for today? How can MSPs and CSPs work together to provide services to enterprises? A range of topics will discuss this topic in great detail, such as:

  • How do we define „managed services“ today? Is the name itself still relevant or should we call it something else?
  • How do operators choose these days what to outsource and what not to outsource?
  • Have services partnerships over the past 10 years delivered on what was promised?
  • From what we've learnt,  how to approach the future deals for managed services as we immerse into AI, automation, IoT and 5G?
  • How can we guarantee a win-win scenario betwen an operator and a vendor in today's challenging environment?
HOW CAN TELCO OPERATORS SUCCESSFULLY TRANSFORM INTO DIGITAL ORGANISATIONS?

We are currently inviting telco operators worldwide to take part in the discussion about digital transformation, through sessions on the programme such as:

Keynote: Transforming service providers into digital service providers

  • CSPs' need for agility, flexibility and intelligence
  • Overview of how we are digitally transforming as a telco
  • Future outlook for services evolution in our company, and how we see partnerships supporting us
