Digital transformation was the name of the game at this year’s TM Forum Live!.

The event, held in Nice, France, June 2-5, is a forum for the communications industry to meet and discuss recent developments and their impact on business. In his keynote speech, Ericsson CTO Ulf Ewaldsson surveyed the digital business landscape. He spoke afterwards about the role OSS/BSS is playing in both the telecom world as well as for other industries.

"This year at TM Forum, there are more participants than ever from other industries wanting to know what telecom networks can do for them. And that is happening because cloud, mobility and broadband are transforming their businesses," Ewaldsson said.

Ericsson’s involvement at TM Forum Live! centered on three areas – agility, digitalization and customer-centric development – and was supported by a series of presentations, panel discussions and live demonstrations.

"Our customers are looking at what they can expose to other players to build on top of their networks. Many of the announcements we have made fit in with that," Ewaldsson said.
