Tomorrow your devices will know you: 10 hot consumer trends in 2018

Ericsson predicts 1 billion 5G subscriptions in 2023.  Expected to be deployed first in dense urban areas, 5G will cover over 20 percent of the world’s population by the end of 2023. The first commercial networks based on 5G New Radio (NR) are expected to go live in 2019, with major deployments from 2020. Early 5G deployments are foreseen in several markets, including the US, South Korea, Japan and China. Ericsson points to a paradigm shift as consumers expect digital technology to increasingly operate on human terms. Body language, facial expression and intonation will augment voice and touch to control consumer interaction with tech devices, easing adaption in an ever-increasing pace of technological change.    

Speaker: Roland Jakab, Managing Director, Ericsson

Industrial digitalization in practice 

Writing the digital future that takes ability. 

It takes the ability to match solutions to problems, like automation to a labor shortage.

It takes the ability to save energy – intelligence in machines and control systems will help you.

It takes the ability to close the loop – data requires action and we need to take information from the physical world (from the plant or equipment) and affect the maintenance schedules, operational processes as a result of data.

This is what it takes to win in digital. 

Speaker: Taira-Julia Lammi, CEO, ABB

HR in a digital world 

How will digitalisation influence the future of work? Generations, scarcity, digitalization: what is the outcome of all these factors in the short and medium term? 

Speaker: Sándor Baja, General Manager, Randstad Hungary

Digital HR – Challenges and Opportunities 

HR organizations are challenged by radically changed expectations from both employees and management, as changes in technology, work practices and business norms combine with generational shifts in attitude to work and increasing labour shortages and skill deficits. These employment-related challenges, however, also provide opportunities, as increasingly capable HR applications, mobile technology, big data, online learning and social collaboration tools fundamentally change how we live, work and communicate. HR can and will use the tools of the digital revolution to support how their organizations find, employ, train, understand, motivate, manage, reward and retain the people they need.

International Expense Management 

Get off from Excel and attached receipts, go digital and let us talk about gains

In an industry study, over 70% out of 500 multinational companies stated they wanted to update or planned to update their travel and expense management systems in 2016. Are you one of them?

Are you already reporting expenses on-the-go, taking a picture of receipts and use OCR to create an expense line for them?

With a Mobile App, managers today are able to approve expense reports during their commute making for a speedy controlling and a fast reimbursement process.
