Since it’s origin in 2018, the Smart Services Summit has created a lively and relevant community of practitioners and researchers, with a relevant focus topic every year. Several implementation projects and other value creating initiatives emerged from this network.
On October 21, we got together for the 5th time to join industrial and academic experts to share ideas, this time with the focus topic „smart services creating sustainability“. The summit was hosted by Oracle at their excellent location in the Circle convention center at airport Zurich. We had a rich and extensive conference program and were able to establish excellent new contacts for future co-creation.
We will take this on to the 6th edition in 2023. The relevant topics are far from being exhausted, indeed they never run out, as in a dynamically changing context new opportunities and also urgent needs for the generation of benefits with smart service-oriented approaches are constantly arising.
