STEM User Group Meeting 2009

30 April 2009

Our international STEM expert consulting group brings operators and vendors together for a two-day annual review on the techno-economic modelling of fixed, mobile and converged networks. The 2009 event runs from 29–30 September and will be held at King’s College, in the heart of the university city of Cambridge, in its 800th anniversary year.

For novice modellers and experienced managers alike, this stimulating meeting of minds examines the latest market issues in a common language that brings refreshing clarity to every subject it touches; from the real cost of mobile broadband to the challenging case for FTTH; and from timing the launch of a new IPTV service to implementing a corporate activity-based costing system.

We will also use the event to launch the long-awaited STEM version 7.2, and more importantly, to reveal a new product strategy that will transform STEM from its current specialised interface through to a modern, multi-layered calculation and communication experience.

Draft programme features a ‘drains-up’ on network modelling by sector

This 14th STEM User Group Meeting is aimed at the wider group of users, which means not just the rocket-science ‘model heads’ who you might imagine driving STEM, but the much wider audience of managers, planners, analysts, accountants, executives and investors who have so much to gain from a transparent and robust modelling platform which generates results they can trust.  The STEM modelling process is designed to transcend organisational boundaries through its common language and intuitive graphical interface, so the event naturally suits delegations from marketing, product, network and finance departments.

Quite apart from the state-of-the-art modelling presentations and insightful debate, you will also meet and mingle with our leading practitioners – the STEM expert consulting group – and learn from their first-hand experience of working with our business-modelling solution and the quality, personal technical support you can expect from Analysys Mason.
