Early predictions of ‘Convergence’ were made in the mid 1970’s. However, the pace of change has been turbo charged from the mid 1990’s by the Internet and mobile communications. This talk will take the audience through the evolution of convergence from a theory to the reality of today where convergence of IT, telecommunications and the media is changing the world of consumers and industry.
Where are the key areas of technology innovation going to occur? What opportunities are there for Australia and Australian companies? Why should we be optimistic about future changes? And what will Telstra’s place be in all this?
