Skype/Yahoo/MSN/Google Head-to-Head on stage

A fascinating post from our friend James Enck at EuroTelcoBlog (also chief telco analyst at Daiwa Securities) who last week chaired an 'unprecedented head-to-head meeting' of Skype, Yahoo!, Microsoft and Google for 250 execs from the UK telco and vendor community, under the banner of "New Kids on the Block." Here's the link:


Thos sharing the stage with James for 90 minutes were:

James Bilefield, General Manager, Europe, Skype
Eileen Broch, Director, Communications Products, UK and EU, Yahoo!
Jim Holden, Director, Global Wireless Strategic Partnerships, Google
Adrian Whaley, EMEA Business Manager, Communications Solutions, Microsoft

NOTE: A detailed analysis of the implications of these companies' strategies for Telcos is in our new report: "Telco 2.0 - How to make money in an IP-based world" - www.telco2.net/report.

We will also be presenting a special analysis of the implications of this for IMS at our IMS Services Industry Brainstorm on 4-5 Oct in London - www.imsservicesforum.com (see separate blog postings for updates)

The Editor, IMS Insider
