The Mobile Software Value Chain
Full Day Conference
There is a major shift occurring in the mobile software industry. Operator philosophies are changing, entrepreneurs are accelerating innovation, and internet portal players are bidding to secure a foothold in the rapidly emerging mobile marketplace. Wireless industry leaders in Asia and Europe are seeking new value-added services and geographical markets. Silicon Valley investment in mobile technology continues to grow at a rapid pace. In navigating the landscape, it will be important to understand the impact these changes are having on the mobile software value-chain.
SDForum's Mobile Software Value Chain 2005 full day program will provide a global perspective on the opportunities that are being created across a broad continuum from operators and software vendors to content providers and transaction oriented mCommerce services. Attendees will leave this program with an understanding of where opportunities exist, as well as practical and actionable advice from leading industry experts and emerging companies. This is a chance to participate in a comprehensive discussion with industry executives, the venture community, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders who are driving the mobile industry.
