Convergence has become one of the most central and significant issues faced in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications sector today – shaping everything from product and service launches to catalyzing multi-million dollar mergers and acquisitions. Convergence Conversations, a book published by Deloitte comprises interviews with 36 senior executives from the converging world. In this PDF you’ll find interresting insights from executives from companies like NTT, Gartner, BenQ, SK Telecom, General Electric, Telenet, Orange, Vodacom, Telegraf, Telefonica, oogle, RIM and Time Warner and many other more.
