1:50pm – Change is the new normal: Transforming for business success in the new Media landscape

As the Media industry undergoes massive transformation, only the strongest or most considered will survive.

Ericsson’s SVP and Group CTO, Ulf Ewaldsson, will reflect on how Ericsson’s own transformation, and that of Telecoms and ICT, has parallels with the Media industry, and why Ericsson has invested to become one of the largest global TV & Media providers of products and services. The session will also highlight some of the latest technologies that underpin success, and just how different a business mindset is needed to excel.
