STEM User Group Meeting 2006

30 April 2006

The Eleventh STEM User Group Meeting will be held on 20–21 September in Cambridge, UK. The formal sessions and the ever-popular Gala Dinner will all be based in the timeless surroundings of Clare College, which also offers overnight accommodation. A limited number of en suite rooms are available for early registrants on a strictly first-come, first-served basis.

Learn more about STEM from its commercial users

The STEM User Group Meeting is a unique opportunity to learn about the activities of other STEM users from around the world, and to discuss best practice in business modelling for networks. Last year’s event attracted 40 operator and vendor clients from four continents and featured a range of Analysys and guest presentations which covered topics including service-profitability analysis and planning models for NGN and HSDPA.

The 2006 event will match the interests of existing and prospective users more effectively by introducing parallel tracks for experts and novices in selected sessions. Master classes for established clients will run alongside fast-track training sessions for newcomers.

Guest presentations on a range of service and technology topics will still take centre stage, but a more consistent format will be adopted by the speakers in order to keep the proceedings clear and evenly-paced. The super-technical details will be deferred to one of the expert tracks towards the end of the conference.

The event will showcase a number of models built by Analysys, including a look at market dynamics and even a business case for STEM itself, and will feature an interactive exercise demonstrating the typical whiteboard-to-STEM process we promote in our regular training workshops.

Finally, and in response to feedback from last year’s participants, we will allow more time for a look at the latest new features in STEM 7.1, and have a discussion session where we will take requests for future development directions.

As always, delegates will be able to enjoy the close dialogue with our consultants and developers which enables us to maintain STEM’s relevance to their continually varying requirements.
