Defining the future telco — and what it means for operators and their partners

Digital Arabia 2013: Digital Entertainment (Day 2) Growing the MENA Gaming Ecosystem (Event Summary Report)

Digital Arabia 2013: Digital Entertainment (Day 2) Growing the MENA Gaming Ecosystem (Event Summary Report)

At the Digital Arabia Executive Brainstorm in Dubai, November 2013, we found that there is widespread optimism for growth in digital gaming, but work is needed to balance the share of value in the ecosystem to maximize growth. Success depends on telcos and others working together effectively to understand each other’s perspectives and value-add, and maximize the systematic growth of the market for maximum mutual and sustainable gain. The alternative is to attempt to dominate in the short term only to lose out on growth in scale and lose share through disruption. (November 2013)

Telco 2.0 Transformation Index: Technology Survey

Telco 2.0 Transformation Index: Technology Survey

150 senior execs from Vodafone, Telefonica, Etisalat, Ooredoo (formerly Qtel), Axiata and Singtel supported our technology survey for the Telco 2.0 Transformation Index. This analysis of the results includes findings on prioritisation, alignment, accountability, speed of change, skills, partners, projects and approaches to transformation. It shows that there are common issues around urgency, accountability and skills, and interesting differences in priorities and overall approach to technology as an enabler of transformation.
