The Telecom Application Developer Summit took place from 21-22 Nov 2013 in Bangkok, the slides are now available here, the videos and photos will be available soon. TADS is much more than just 2 days in Bangkok. Our objective with TADS is to help build the telecom application developer ecosystem from the grassroots, to expand the community of developers that can use telecoms in their applications, services and businesses. And in doing so the whole ecosystem will benefit from their combined energy, innovations, ideas, technologies and reach. This is how the web works, and we’re simply copying it.
TADS is important to telcos, by 2018 there could be a $100B revenue hole because of competition in messaging and voice services from IP-based providers, and customers’ expectations on what internet access should cost. The industry has stagnated for too long, and not kept the core product fresh and relevant to its customers, as we see in other service and high tech industries. The Telecom Application Developer ecosystem has the potential to close that gap by keeping telecoms fresh and relevant and in doing so create a $100B market for us all to share in.
Tonse Telecom is a strong proponent of the TADS phenomenon and is a media partner to TADS event.
