The Open Mobile Summit (19th – 20th May, London) will further investigate the implications of losing net neutrality and how implementing more rigorous data security plans over the Internet will help regain users’ trust. This is a two-day event mapping the emerging trends in the converging mobile, media and Internet ecosystem. It brings together C level executives worldwide to engage in a dialogue to devise new business rules and opportunities for the post mobile era.

Regardless of opinions flying across the pond, the public is becoming increasingly informed about privacy and the perils that await just one stroke of a key away. Consequently, they will look for encryption tools or channels that they will feel safe to use and will protect them from either the government or other third party player that is looking to gain full control over the data. Either way, it seems that there is some need for trust to be rebuilt here. The Open Mobile Summit will bring together mobile experts and wireless carrier representatives such as Orange and MEF to address these issues and explore how Internet that we once knew will change.

Front Row Seat for Data Security

European Commission vice-president, Neelie Kroes stated earlier this week: “The next phase of the internet will be data-centred and connectivity-driven. Cloud computing, big data, the internet of things (IoT); tools which support manufacturing, education, energy, our cars and more. The internet is no longer about emails. To make the ‘leap of faith’ into this new world, reliability and trust is a pre-condition.”

Ina Vaduvescu, Open Mobile Summit project director said, “Data security over the Internet is one of the biggest concerns both mobile enterprises and consumers are facing in the connected world, therefore summoning specialists and getting them to come together and explore avenues to mitigate these worries is something that The Open Mobile Summit is set to provide.”

Topics: The Trends Changing the Face of Mobility

Open Mobile Summit will explore the must know topics to forge forward in this fast past, constantly evolving mobile space:

  • New Tools in Advertising: Is it possible to improve customer experience through new technologies such as iBeacons or NFC? And, how will programmatic scheduling and real time bidding change the face of advertising?
  • TV Goes Digital: It’s all about the show, not the screen. In order to keep up with their ravenous mobile consuming audience, broadcasters need to adapt their digital strategies. How are they upgrading on design and native advertising?
  • Wearables – a Revolution in Fashion and Lifestyle Services: With message alerts and payments flowing through the wristbands, what is the next step towards lifestyle services? How long until wearables become the next fashion idol?
  • Web Vs. Apps: What’s the Right Choice? Mobile apps offer increased performance and UX advantages. But, browsers promise to render some of these apps obsolete as connection speeds, functionality and mobile design improve.
  • Playing the Enterprise Game: From juggling BYOD and Cloud to safeguarding data, it all comes down to understanding the players’ mobile mind shift. Learn how deploying gamification can help you move to the next level.
  • MPAYMENTS Joins Forces With Retail: Bridging the digital and physical worlds! How can delivering a contextually relevant mcommerce experience help give retail customers what they want, when they want it?
  • Net Neutrality Ruling Moves the Goal Posts: The US court has decided against net neutrality and network operators are getting heavily involved in issues such as mobile identity. As a result, personal data becomes the holy grail of customer insight.
