Ovum broadens its country coverage with the new telecoms Emerging Markets practice

Ovum strengthens its telecoms research by broadening its geographic portfolio to include the major emerging markets of the Middle East and Africa, China, India and Latin America

London, (PresseBox) - On Thursday 9 July 2009 at 2pm BST, global advisory and consulting firm Ovum, will host a webinar to launch its new telecoms practice - Emerging Markets. The webinar 'The mobile money in emerging markets', will be led by Angel Dobardziev, practice leader of Emerging Markets and an Ovum veteran with over 12 years experience in the telecoms and technology industry.

"The aim of Ovum's investment on increasing its presence in emerging markets is to enhance the quality of its research and its strong topic leadership with deeper local insights and also to further strengthen its client relationships," says Dobardziev.

According to Ovum there are five key research themes in particular that will dominate the Emerging Markets research agenda over the next year:

- Mobile: strategic and operational excellence
- Beyond voice: opportunities in data services
- Next generation access: strategies for success
- Addressing the regulatory challenges and opportunities
- Enterprise strategies for success

Together with providing the opportunity to find out more about Ovum's Emerging Markets latest research, case studies and industry trends, Ovum's webinar will reveal the scale of the mobile money opportunity in the major emerging markets of the Middle East and Africa, China, India and Latin America, and outline the best practice strategies for making the most of it.

Only media who register for the webinar will be privy to exclusive content from Emerging Markets research and will also have the opportunity to interact with Angel Dobardziev at a Q&A session.

"The Emerging Markets practice sets Ovum apart thanks to its unrivalled depth and breadth of insight on how global market trends, new technologies, and innovative services are shaping the telecoms markets," concludes Dobardziev.
