Managed Services World Congress Agenda Highlights

Managed Services World Congress 2015 will feature more about real-life operator experiences and what can be learnt from not only best practice deals, but also from deals that didn’t go well. It will follow the theme of “Are managed services a “win-win” or a “lose-lose” scenario?” and how could we ensure many more “win-win” scenarios in the future.

The agenda will include plenary sessions in the morning, with afternoon streams dedicated to Maximising revenues through managed services and Driving efficiencies and optimisation through managed services.

A number of topics and sections pertinent to a burning issues in managed services will be examined, which haven’t been discussed in detail in the past, such as:

MVNO Managed Services model, presented by Vodafone

Deutsche Telekom’s approach to “Mitigating and Managing Risk in Managed Services Initiatives” 

Case study from Sure (Batelco Group): Scoping and implementation of tier 1 vendors by tier 3 operator

Justifying LTE investments, from the perspective of EE

Limited free passes available to operators

In exchange for a free pass we ask operators to take part in the “Meet the Operators” networking session during the drinks reception at the end of the first day.

Managed Services is primarily a networking-orientated market, and in 2015 the Managed Services World Congress aims to provide you with as much face-to-face time as possible. On the 15th September, you are invited to join us for the formal “Meet the Operators” networking session during the drinks reception. Vendors have access to the region’s leading MNOs and MVNOs in a series of pre-organised face to face meetings. Meetings last fifteen minutes and give each vendor an opportunity to establish a critical contact with potential customers.
