TECH.3 : CTO Roundtable for growth
Wednesday, 07 October 2009, 11:00 - 12:30, Room C

Technology is constantly evolving, shaped by market forces and the needs of business and consumers. While the economic situation is having its impact on new product development, the emergence of new services and applications is a constant stimulus to innovation in the ICT industry. Picking winners and losers is a particular challenge in a difficult economic climate. To meet the challenge of 'Internet for the next One Billion+' will require meeting the requirements of new markets, new user demands, new services on the network and evolving infrastructure. The global standardization landscape will need to be clarified to avoid overlaps and complexity in standards development and to ensure that industry priorities are met and met rapidly. The growth of cloud computing raises many new challenges and concerns about climate change and energy-efficiency add a new dimension to product development.
