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.
The maturity of telco automations in the network OSS and BSS varies significantly. Some telcos are reporting significant headcount reductions from mature automations while others are still in the early stages of simple automation deployments. There are important steps telcos must consider if they are to reach maximum automation.
The pace of GAI development over the last 12 months raises questions for telcos around what else is coming down the track in analytics, AI and automation. How should they respond to GAI, thing as customer, decision intelligence and digital immunity, among others?
Telcos are looking to expand their enterprise services and capture a larger share of the revenue opportunity. But to do this they must carefully consider where they are best placed to compete and how they can build on existing expertise and reputation.
Telcos are making progress on the data-driven path. We asked experienced Chief Data Officers about their current short- and mid-term priorities to uncover how to successfully steer the telco towards the ambition of becoming data-driven organisations.
How can operators apply best practice principles from the cloud and leading operators as they plan their metro network for growth?
Deployment of digital twins by telcos runs significantly behind some verticals as they have less compelling use cases. However, they are now going live in multiple network-related areas. What are the key drivers and barriers of digital twin adoption in telecoms?
We found subtle but significant shifts at the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress 2023 that show how the market’s need is changing to ‘connecting technologies’ rather than ‘connectivity’. This has deep implications for the industry and telcos in particular.
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.
5G SA is an exciting development for operators, and the choice between a multi-vendor or single-vendor approach has wide-ranging implications.
Networks consume more than 75% of all the electricity a typical service provider uses in one year. We explore five game changing strategies that can be implemented today to help build greener networks.
Truly data-driven organisations excel at understanding their customers, driving new revenues, and evolving their business models. In order to achieve these benefits, telcos will need to create more useable data sets, accessible to all across the organisation – and to external partners in the future. What practical steps should they take to get there?
We found subtle but significant shifts at the GSMA’s Mobile World Congress 2022 that show how the market’s need is changing to ‘connecting technologies’ rather than ‘connectivity’. This has deep implications for the industry and telcos in particular.
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.
In this report we update our initial model of the potential financial value of adding analytics, AI and automation (A3) into a telco’s processes. Our bottom up assessment of 150+ processes across networks and operations, customer channels, sales and marketing shows telcos can achieve financial benefits amounting to more than 8% of annual revenues.
Improving customer experience has been a focus for telcos for almost 20 years, but there is still some way to go. This research looks at how A3 is helping telcos today and how it can address key challenges in future.
