Andy Tiller, Executive Vice President, Products & Services, TM Forum
George Glass, CTO, TM Forum

The Global Architecture Forum (GAF) was first launched in 2018 to enable a worldwide community of architects and designers from CSPs and enterprises to collaboratively learn from each other. Through webinars and onsite sessions at TM Forum events, the GAF has over the years provided the community with practical and actionable insights on how TM Forum assets are used to enable digital transformation. The GAF session at Digital Transformation Asia will highlight members’ use of TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture assets, such as Open APIs, eTOM, SID and ODA Components to drive digital transformation. Topics will range from technology evolution to successful project implementations using TM Forum assets, transforming organizational structures and the ‘future of architecture’. Join us for the GAF session to hear inspiring and practical member case studies and engage with your peers.
