Within the last year, the two dominant US mobile operators have eclipsed 100 million subscribers. Along with this honor comes a host of technology issues ideally suited for Erlang-based solutions.
This talk will explore the perfect storm of opportunity in the mobile industry (and others) including barriers to entry, paths to success, and an extrapolative perspective on where carrier ecosystems are heading. Expect a talk that is devoid of Erlang code examples and laden with anecdotes of why the "best" technology doesn't always win, all while remaining generally optimistic on the prospects of an Erlang-centric future.
Talk objectives: Explore the business needs of major corporations facing the "100 Million Problem", a technology dilemma plaguing those that dared to succeed but not scale. Discuss the applicability to Erlang as a core technology to overcoming the problem and laying the foundation for significant ROI
Target audience: Anyone in the unenviable position of having to sell their Erlang-based technology/solution to someone who doesn't realize they need it. Anyone in the enviable position of needing to evolve beyond their current technology investments and exploring Erlang as an option
