I’m sure all of you would agree that one can never underestimate the positive impact of collaboration. As Aristotle once said over 2,300 years ago, “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts,” and it is true that this sentiment still resonates with us today.
This is one reason why we are attending the TM Forum’s Accelerate event in Cascais, Portugal in early February. Apart from the fact that Cascais happens to be one of the most beautiful places in Europe, situated along the Portuguese Riviera, boasting historic fortresses and glorious beaches, one could argue that it would be irresponsible not to attend.
Our purpose is to share, learn and of course collaborate with industry colleagues to explore how we can contribute to what is becoming the de facto industry standard, in the form of the Open Digital Architecture (ODA).
We’re delighted to acknowledge that the ODA has been our reference architecture right from the outset. We’ve used these assets when developing our solution from the ground up and it’s paying dividends.
We look forward to meeting old friends and colleagues again:
- to bounce ideas around,
- challenge old traditional ways, and
- stimulate new concepts
to truly maximise the benefits of the technology that is available with us today.
I sincerely believe the future is bright and the contribution that we can all make collectively, representing the telecoms industry, positively impacts humankind.
We look forward to meeting you in Cascais.
