Frost & Sullivan: ICT Drives the Development of a Smart Europe
LONDON, February 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- During upcoming web conference Frost & Sullivan's Saverio Romeo will discuss the evolution of the European digital political agenda and the catalyst role of the ICT industry in leading to a Smart Europe
European policy makers are increasingly driving modernization of the public administration services in order to offering better services to their citizens and minimising costs. This is also determined by the need to re-boost growth in a sustainable way. Information and communication technology's (ICT) role is critical in enabling these market changes. Without ICT, the vision of a smart Europe will not become reality.
Frost & Sullivan will host a web conference entitled: Towards a Smart Europe - The Enabling Role of ICT, on Thursday, 15 March 2012, at 15.00 GMT. Frost & Sullivan's Senior Industry Analyst, Saverio Romeo, will discuss the main areas of investments for a Smart Europe: transport, healthcare and smart cities, as well as opportunities available for the ICT industry. Broadband technologies, content development, machine to machine technologies, Radio-frequency identification (RFID), sensor networks, data analytics tools, business support systemsÂ and operations support systemsÂ (BSS-OSS) solutions are some of the technological areas that will drive the development of a Smart Europe.
"Moving towards a smart Europe is becoming the political priority for governments and the EU. ICT is the catalyst for accelerating the implementation of that priority. Substantial investments have been made in smart key sectors like healthcare, intelligent transport systems and smart cities. Frost & Sullivan will follow and analyze this emerging enabling role of ICT guiding ICT players through the opportunities that a smart Europe will create."
The briefing will be beneficial to all ICT industry players, and particularly to the ones involved in the use of ICT in the public sector like mobile network operators, system integrators, telecommunications services providers, mobile device manufacturers, applications software developers, M2M technology and service providers, telecommunications infrastructure vendors, and data analytics providers.Â
