Digital Entertainment 2.0: Event Summary Analysis Presentation

Part of the New Digital Economics Executive Brainstorm series, the Digital Commerce 2.0 session took place at the Marriott Hotel, San Francisco, on the 28th March, 2012, and looked at how to stimulate mass adoption of mobile wallets, how to effectively leverage customer data and personal data, how to scale digital merchant-consumer interaction and how to harness telco assets and capabilities to deliver digital commerce 2.0.

Using a widely acclaimed interactive format called ‘Mindshare’, the event enabled specially-invited senior executives from across the communications, media, banking and technology sectors to discuss opportunities, challenges, and practical experiences from the future of e-commerce.

This note summarises some of the high-level findings and includes the verbatim output of the brainstorm.
