New venue, new city, new dates – but was it plus ca change at Digital Transformation World 2022?

The TM Forum’s Digital Transformation World – the flagship convention for the telecom software industry for over twenty years – returned to an in-person event after a two-year Covid-enforced gap. Living up to the spirit of its transformation title, it has a new format, time of year and home venue for the next three years: Copenhagen’s Bella Centre.

The move could hardly be more apposite for the telecom software community: a shift away from familiar, yet brutally monolithic and ageing infrastructure: the Acropolis Center in Nice, long overdue substantial overhaul; cosmetic adjustments made over recent years failing to address its real problems.

Impressively, DTW 2022 attracted over 3,000 delegates to Copenhagen. But was it a case of plus ca change? Our Research Note looks at the themes and sentiments from across the event – keynote presentations and at the coal face with vendors and industry peers.
