KEYNOTE PRESENTATION - THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE DIGITAL ECONOMY

JIM WHITEHURST, PRESIDENT AND CEO, RED HAT

Tuesday, February 27- 9:00 a.m

Location: Hall 4, Auditorium 1

Red Hat’s Jim Whitehurst will speak as part of the Mobile World Congress Digital Economy session on how telco organizations can prepare for the future, and how they can create a more dynamic, open culture to keep pace in a disrupted industry.

Jim will address how telco organisations can best navigate the volatile, uncertain world they find themselves in, how they can rethink traditional structures and processes, and instead optimise to be more agile, resilient and innovative.
