De digitale economie en de Europese Commissie: Digital Agenda Assembly 2012

De digitale economie en de Europese Commissie: Digital Agenda Assembly 2012

Afgelopen donderdag en vrijdag werd de Digital Agenda Assembly in Brussel gehouden. Deze Assembly-conferentie is gehouden ten behoeve van de "Digital Agenda for Europe", de Europese roadmap om de voordelen van de digitale economie en maatschappij te kunnen ontplooien. Ik was door de Europese Commissie uitgenodigd om aan deze invite-only conferentie deel te nemen. In totaal waren er een paar honderd man uit heel Europa aanwezig, een zeer diverse club van mensen.

Doelstellingen

De belangrijkste doelstellingen van de Assembly zijn:

  • de voortgang beoordelen van de reeds ingezette acties, waar mogelijk zoekende naar verbeteringen;
  • het identificeren van uitdagingen voor de informatiemaatschappij en alvorens de Digital Agenda wordt geïmplementeerd en
  • het mobiliseren van stakeholders om uitdagingen te spotten en vooruitgang te boeken.

Het twee dagen durende evenement bestond uit een volle dag workshops (donderdag) en een plenaire sessie op vrijdag. Juist tijdens de workshops was er de mogelijkheid om actief bij te dragen aan het digitale beleid van Europa. Focus van dit artikel is de eerste dag.

Zelf heb ik deelgenomen aan de Convergent Media Platforms workshop:

Following last year's workshop on "ICT and the management of creative content", the workshop constituted a further development in the exchanges bringing the focus more on the convergence angle but maintaining the strong emphasis on the consumer which emerged during last year's discussions.

Convergence of devices is increasingly becoming reality with connected TV models and cloud computing. As a result, content is increasingly a strategic asset for telecom operators, equipment manufacturers, online service providers and social media which compete to provide new application services and innovative business models to respond to new consumption patterns.

Consumers are increasingly able and willing to access content which could be anything anywhere across multiple devices (internet-enabled TV sets, PCs, smartphones and tablets).

Ik heb moeten vaststellen dat de klantfocus niet erg aanwezig was. Veel werd er besproken vanuit het technologische innovatie-perspectief en niet zozeer de waardecreatie en –innovatie. Er is een groep gebruikers die de convergentie van allerlei apparaten en schermen natuurlijk adopteert, maar met de huidige demografie van doelgroepen (bijvoorbeeld baby boomers, digibeten, e.d.) zijn dit grote groepen die vanuit de aanbodkant “gewoon” op een zakelijke manier benaderd moeten worden. Dit, gepaard met de focus van de workshop, kan ook liggen aan de samenstelling van de groep, veelal personen vanuit de technologie en beleidsvorming en niet zozeer vanuit de business.

Europe's Digital Agenda Assembly: summary of the Convergent Media Platforms workshop #da12converge

Storified by 90:10 Group NL · Mon, Jun 25 2012 04:25:59

This workshop was part of the Digital Agenda Assembly of the European Commission.

The main objectives of the Assembly are to:

*Assess progress to date on implementation towards the Digital Agenda's goals and actions and seek ways to improve delivery;
*Identify challenges ahead for the implementation of the Digital Agenda and for the information society in general;
*Mobilise stakeholders' actions to make further progress and address challenges.

Following last year's workshop on "ICT and the management of creative content", this workshopconstituted a further development in the exchanges bringing the focus more on the convergence angle but maintaining the strong emphasis on the consumer which emerged during last year's discussions.

Convergence of devices is increasingly becoming reality with connected TV models and cloud computing. As a result, content is increasingly a strategic asset for telecom operators, equipment manufacturers, online service providers and social media which compete to provide new application services and innovative business models to respond to new consumption patterns.


Consumers
are increasingly able and willing to access content which could be anything anywhere across multiple devices (internet-enabled TV sets, PCs, smartphones and tablets).


Below you'll find an aggregation of all conversations and the 90:10 Group's specific contribution to the workshop with some added thoughts.

Aggregation of 90:10 Group's reporting on the Convergent Media Platforms workshop

One of the things that standed out to me was the focus on technological innovation and less on business model innovation. There are so many technologies out there changing or morphing consumer behavior, but from a business point of perspective, there seems to be wait-and-see attitude.

I sensed this also when one of the panelists feedbacked on previous given suggestion of a "creative destructive" mindset in approaching the challenges due to all these technological innovations but also demographic shifts. The feedback was that linear TV still excells, which is true. But right now baby boomers are sustaining this growth, not able to handle connected devices and sticking to linear TV. Within a decade this will change and then what?

There's still a long way to go in moulding the future living room which is relevant and meaningful.
