Today, as you read this, consider how many people around the world, whether on a PC, a tablet or even a smart phone, are doing something very similar. They may be reading a blog, sharing a video, buying something, paying their mortgage or filling a prescription. By 2020, what do we expect? There could be as many as 50 billion devices connected to the Internet!
Industry transformation drives major changes for communications service providers (CSPs) and it will continue to do so. As demand continues to skyrocket, the field of competitors grows even more crowded with “players” that, just a few years ago, weren’t even considered CSPs.
When powerful brands, such as Amazon, Google and Apple, become CSP competitors overnight, and customers churn at an alarming rate, how should a CSP react? The answer is to get faster, smarter and more efficient. The answer is to transform.
The challenges are formidable and there are many possible ways to succeed. Major strategic decisions must be made quickly and ensure CSPs can compete in an “all-IP” world, operate with the leanest and most agile cost model, and delight their customers.
If you want to know what key trends, drivers, and opportunities lie ahead for the telecommunication and mobility industry, Impact 2013 is where you want to be.
