As operators embark on their telco cloud journeys, what should they look out for and what lessons can they learn from others? This report analyses the strategies and progress of four operators leading the way in telco cloud transformation and sheds light on the lessons learned from their initial deployments.
Our analysis of five telco case studies highlights the challenge for telcos looking to introduce cross-silo working and how approaches are being adapted to fit the organisation and access business benefits.
Nine change stakeholders describe their experience of telco transformation, providing insights on the change process and learnings for others that are remodelling their organisations for the future.
Change agents know that stakeholders need a picture of the future – or “vision” – to point the way for a transformation. Yet visions can do more to unite and inspire action. How can telcos improve them?
We evaluate the role of disaggregation and cloud native infrastructure and key breakthrough opportunities for network operators.
Since we first published this report in 2019, telcos have made significant investments in 5G, but value continues to shift towards service differentiators. Transformation remains at the heart of most telecoms operators’ strategies but change has been painfully slow. This report explains why agility and innovation – the goals of transformation – will remain elusive until CFOs adopt new resource allocation models at their organisations.
This research defines and considers the topic “Future of work” – exploring the impact of emerging technologies and economic and social changes on telcos, and identifying how A3 (analytics, AI and automation) can help solve new challenges.
More telcos are making deals to run their VNFs on the public cloud. Not much is live yet. But cloud hosting of network functions will support telcos in realising the benefits of cloud-native, and we believe telcos can safely go further and faster.
The knowledge and skills required to succeed in the digital environment are ever evolving. Telcos must maintain knowledge flows around the organisation and enhance their capacity to learn in order to keep pace and compete.
Elisa has developed a culture and an approach to business that has seen it grow capital value, deliver dividends, keep customers happy, and attract and develop talent. We outline how, and what other telcos can learn based on our in-depth research, including interviews with CEO Veli-Matti Mattila and the wider team.
How telecoms industry CEOs can reignite growth, align investors, employees, customers and governments, and reinvigorate the industry for the next decade.
