11:40 AM The critical role of IoT service providers

Rachel Ginzberg , Head of Amdocs M2M, Amdocs

Take car makers for example: They own the end customer and are seen by the customer as responsible for the end to end service. But what happens when dozens of in-car services are provided by other companies? Who is responsible for providing the holistic experience? The car makers’ role as IoT service providers is becoming extremely challenging, but not only for them: similar complexity will increase in other IoT verticals.  In Amdocs we believe that this complexity opens the door for exciting opportunities for the IoT providers, and for communication service providers that have a proven experience in providing complex services ecosystem. Join us for this interesting discussion.
