ICT Intuition President Nancee Razicka explains how operators can use their knowledge in application development to drive collaboration across industries.

Today’s agile service providers are keenly aware of the important role that inter-industry collaboration will play in the Networked Society. However, the industry knowledge that is unique to each poses challenges for operators who want to start cross-industry partnerships.

Yet, apart from the network, IT infrastructure and data centers, the only elements that require truly industry-unique customization are the applications used by those industries. This poses a unique opportunity for operators to work closely with partners, providing their resources and application development know-how to create agile solutions.
