Digital Leadership Summit: Accelerating the use of data for innovation

Monday, February 27, 2023 2:00pm to 5:00pm


Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are ideally placed to leverage their wealth of unique data to optimize business operations and develop innovative services and products. However, data-driven innovation remains a challenge for many CSPs and is exacerbated by the increasing data volumes from 5G. 

In this in-person Digital Leadership Summit, you will hear and discuss how CSPs can access and innovate with data through effective data governance and the automated integration of diverse data sources.
