Re-Power Cyprus: Digital Evolution & Business Continuity

Cyprus is at a critical crossroad in its history, entering into a deep economic crisis, after the complete overthrow of the banking system.  It is given that although Cyprus’s economy has lost its recently secured stability, it will inevitably get into a process of reconstitution and reconstruction by focusing on rearranging its priorities, from bank systems based on leverage towards the productive economy.

The Information and Communication Technologies, today-perhaps more than ever-can form the ideal multiplier in an effort to return the nation’s economy to the path of recovery.

1st Session: Infrastructure

Telecommunication infrastructures are the physical substance of the telecommunications concept, but also the avenue linking IT infrastructures between them, creating the concept of cloud.

The tremendous technological developments in the telecommunications sector, consistently reaffirm the Moore’s Law, while incite providers to increasingly pressing investment plans, while looking for the best recipe of Return of Investment. In this arena, various technologies compete with each other, but also complement each other, so that the business plans generate positive outcome.

The guests of this section will analyze the technical and business operation parameters, as well as the range of options, from which telecommunications proposals and access products are formed.

2nd Session: In cloud we trust

The Information Technology and Telecommunications, empower businesses with several skills-set, in order to convert a significant portion of CapEx to OpEx, freeing up precious capital resources, while at the same time allowing them to consolidate their relationship with their customers.

This change affects, not only in small medium businesses, but also in bigger organizations, from the banking sector to the State structures.

In this section, infrastructure providers, but also technology and services providers, will present their proposals for a data-centric environment, which is constantly expanding, while they’ll responde to challenges, both in terms of how to manage the volume of information, but also with consideration to the delicate balance between accessibility and security.

3rd Session: the social media company

The usage of new technologies is an essential condition for the improvement of the performance features of an enterprise, both internally and externally as well.  The customer approach, in personal level, with basic tool the social media, promises to increase both brand awareness and performance of an enterprise, thus extending its horizons. This section’s guests will develop their proposals for the entanglement of enterprises in the secret paths and large avenues of social networking. They will attempt to answer whether the small enterprises stand and challenge against giants in the field of e-business, or to co-develop models with the same vehicle. Experts will analyze if all enterprises can become “e” or “m”, as well as how big is the distance from “like” to “want”. In any case, the relation between Telecommunications and Information technology with the extraversion is proportional. Both the adoption, as well as the production of products using raw materials and innovation as recipe, produces added value and the only thing needed for the initial launch is confidence.

4th Session: CEO Summit

The CEO’s of Cypriot companies of Telecommunications are called to manage the gushing changes of today’s economy, while maintaining the total confidence of both customers and shareholders.  The task is extremely difficult, if we also take into consideration the investment plans that have been implemented for the upgrade of networks and services.  These dilemmas are not limited only to the reality of Cypriot telecommunications but are also formulated by the European Committee which discusses, if the relaxation of the existing regulating frame towards the incumbent can constitute launch pad for rebooting the investments, or if the common infrastructure could decrease the operational costs, focusing to the competition in the level of services.
