Connected Communities and Cross-Industry Collaboration

Last week in San Francisco, ARM President and CEO Designate, Simon Segars joined technology forecaster Paul Saffo and James Moore, a former Harvard professor and an expert on leadership and change in large-scale systems for a lively discussion on implications and opportunities for new cross industry collaboration. The conversation ran the gamut of discussing the early days of ARM and the evolution of its open business model to what it would take for companies to switch to a more open model. As Segars noted, maintaining an ecosystem of more than 1000 partners isn’t without its challenges, particularly when there are some members of the ecosystem who may want to put each other out of business while building an SoC is only getting more and more complex. You can watch the event here in its entirety.
