What is a Digital Society?
GSMA Intelligence defines a digital society as a society with:
- Interaction between governments, businesses and citizens via digital technologies
- Social and economic benefits around efficiency and productivity gains
- Improved wellbeing and living standards of citizens
It is clear the benefits digital technologies can bring to communities are vast and varied, impacting a range of industries and services. Across the diverse Asian region, there are many different types of digital societies – from emerging populations in Bangladesh and Pakistan to the advanced markets in Japan and South Korea.
The aim of Mobile 360 – Digital Societies is to examine the components of a successful digital society, and analyze what can be done to progress economies towards this goal. Focusing on the digital platforms enabling new and innovative services, the event focuses on the key metrics defining a digital society: digital citizenship, digital commerce, digital identity, digital lifestyle and connectivity, and how developments in these key areas can lead to gains for society as a whole.
Our line-up of industry-leading speakers will shine a light on APAC innovation like never before, examining how developments in these core areas are powering digital transformation across the region. In addition to the keynotes, the series of in-depth workshops allow a deeper dive into the industry’s most complex challenges.
