Knowledge sharing session: “Trends in the Mobile Everything World”

Following the recent Mobile World fair in Barcelona (27 February – 2 March 2017), the ITCBC organized a peer-to-peer exchange to catch up on the latest trends and developments. The event was led by the ITCBC members who made the trip to the Mobile World fair: Mr. Per Dahlberg, ‎Managing Partner, SpringPoint Limited / Chairman of ECC ICTBC, Mr. Raul Guerra, General Manager, South China, HK & Taiwan – Investment Promotion – ‎Catalonia Trade & Investment, Mr. Ville Sarja, Group CIO and Group Security Officer, Salcomp, and Ms. Waltraut Ritter, Principal, Knowledge Dialogues.

They first highlighted that the event not only focused on telecom issues and wasn’t just a device show anymore. As a matter of fact, it also dealt with a lot of challenges related to mobile in general, like smart cities, hardware, etc. Furthermore, more than presenting products and services, operators also used the event as a networking platform aiming at developing new business models to adapt the digital economy. Operators weren’t only there to sell, but also to meet the customers, and enhance their user-experience knowledges. Strong emphasis was observed by the members on issues like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). They have also noted that the number of Chinese and Hong Kong companies attending the event has more than double in five years.

Members explained that different ecosystems were developed by the operators to face de digital transformation. However, namely because IoT is a very diversified market, they agreed that, except some giants American technology firms, it is still difficult to identify players stronger than other. They have also pointed out that things were moving quickly, namely thanks to and through smart cities. Futhermore, the members highlighted the need to develop standards in order to be ready when mass public will access those technologies. Using the example of the industrial IoT, members also agreed that the connectivity to be developed will have to be adapted to the users. In particular, the IoT ecosystems of industrial and consumers will be two very different worlds. A small part of the World fair also dealt with Fintech, not as one of its main trades however. Finally, participants closed this ITCBC event interchanging about new trends, such as the cognitive internet or the impact of AI on societies.
