CCW 2022 speaker interview: Mika Myllymaki

What will you be speaking about at CCW 2022? Why is that an important topic?

I will be taking part in the panel discussion about secure, cloud-based solutions. Secure cloud solutions are an important part of digitalization. They bring IT cost reductions, better scalability, faster development time and more innovations. Especially in the mission critical context, this must be implemented with the right security measures. All this applies to MCPTT, MCVideo and MCDate solutions that we provide.

What are the key messages that you would like people to take away after attending your conference session?

Firstly, MCx solutions are integrated with cloud systems. Secondly, secure computing is based on shared responsibility.

What do you see as being the big issues and challenges for the sector over the next five years?

The big issues and challenges are related to migration of legacy systems to cloud platforms, security concerns and data integration.

What will be the most transformative development in terms of the technology? What will that development mean for user operations, as well as the broader market?

Software as a service -based applications and massive data processing are the most important technological bricks. As users, we will work differently in the digital environment. It will touch all of us.

What should be the number one priority for the sector going into the future?

Start simple and [take it] step-by-step. There are low hanging fruits that are easier to migrate than others. For example, a backup system for PTT over the broadband.
