The eBusiness Special Interest group invites alumni to a special event on Tesco Hudl: changing technology and business models with Aaron Lee, Head of Connected Products at Tesco.
The explosion of the smartphone and tablet market over the past decade has had an enormous effect on the personal and business lives of people across the globe.
Hudl, a 7” tablet developed by retailing giant Tesco, was launched in 2013 and sold over 500,000 units in the first seven months after hitting the shelves. Join us to learn about the journey of developing Hudl and Tesco’s surprise move into the hyper-competitive tablet market, taking on tech giants Google, Amazon, Apple and Samsung. Aaron will expand on lessons learnt on sourcing, developing the partnerships, and applications for the store.
