Real Talk - The power of openness

RealTalk_Openness

Experts broadly agree that openness is key to creating innovative services, smarter business models and better customer experiences. So why do just 8% of telecoms executives say openness will be critical to their success going forward?

We’ll explore the present and future of openness in telecoms at our next Real Talk session on February 8. Now is the time to turn what has predominantly been a technical conversation into a commercial one — and to see openness as the gateway to a world of innovation possibilities.
