The multibillion-dollar European telecoms market continues to transform in fundamental ways, fueled by cloud, new user demands and expectations, automation, software-defined architectures, and network virtualization. Telcos are eager to reinvent themselves as technology companies that can continue to play a vital role in business and consumer communications, but also compete in new areas ranging from multicloud to media.
This means that the traditional telco approach to building out connectivity, compute, communications, and operations is giving way to a much more dynamic and open ecosystem. Telcos are no longer doing everything in-house, with the implied heavy customization and long lead times. Instead, they need to leverage the agility offered by cloud and virtualization provided by third parties, including the cloud hyperscalers, to stay ahead of the curve in a very competitive, and consolidating industry.
The IDC European Telco Digital Summit 2022 will look at these themes with Europe’s leading telco analysts, hosting senior telco executives and keynotes by industries leaders.
