Service Provider Transformation: Change is the New Normal
Jul 25, 2016
With today’s ever changing competitive landscape, transformation is no longer an option, it’s become an imperative for Service providers to remain relevant, prosper and grow their business. The need for transformation is being driven by several challenges both external and internal, as well as strategic and operational. Although a transformation strategy and exact approach will vary among service providers, we’ve identified a few key areas where transformation needs to occur:
Business: Leverage new technologies and network architectures to create rapid service creation and delivery with competitive pricing models;
Technology: Adopt virtualization and cloud technologies to create open network platforms with system level automation and predictive analytics;
