The industry has seen phenomenal growth and technology change in the last 10 years as compared to the previous 100. Most of this growth can be attributed to the Over-The-Top (OTT) providers’ innovations. Video/VoIP replacing traditional voice, live TV on mobile, storage over cloud and real time content merged with them, resulting in convergence of technology at its best.
Agile business transformation, operational efficiency and innovation are the key revenue drivers for communications service providers (CSPs).
With a rapidly changing business and regulatory environment, customer demand and innovative technology, CSPs constantly re-invent their business models to introduce game changing products and services in the market that shape customer mind-set, preference and behaviour. It is essential for market leaders to establish their brand as the best in the market by turning demand into value and capitalizing on new types of connectivity through transformation of their business processes and information systems that make them flexible and nimble to launch and support new services continuously across multiple channels of communication.
The telecom industry faces some serious challenges:
Saturating markets in developing countries
Traditional voice revenue on the decline
Complex operating models
Need to keep up with the pace of continuous technology innovation
Demand to continuously enhance customer experience.
As a result, the traditional growth model of expanding the customer base no longer works.
