The Future Value of Voice and Messaging

The Future Value of Voice and Messaging

Our new research shows how telcos can slow the decline of voice and messaging revenues and build new communications services to maximise revenues and relevance with both consumer and enterprise customers. It includes detailed forecasts for 9 markets, in which the total decline is forecast between -25% and -46% on a $375bn base between 2012 and 2018, giving telcos an $80bn opportunity to fight for. It also shows impacts and implications for other technology players including vendors and partners, and general lessons for competing with disruptive players in all markets. It looks at the impact of so-called OTT competition, market trends and drivers, bundling strategies, operators developing their own Telco-OTT apps, advanced Enterprise Communications services, and the opportunities to exploit new standards such as RCS, WebRTC and VoLTE.

The Great Compression: surviving the ‘Digital Hunger Gap’

The Great Compression: surviving the ‘Digital Hunger Gap’

In the next 10 years, many industries face the ‘Great Compression’ in which, in addition to the pressures of ongoing global economic uncertainty, there is also a major digital transformation that is destroying traditional value and moving it ‘disruptively’ to new areas and geographies. For the incumbent industry players we call the near-term results of this disruption ‘The Digital Hunger Gap’ – the widening deficit between past and projected revenues. This is our analysis of the top-level findings of the Silicon Valley Executive Brainstorm. (March 2013, Executive Briefing Service, Transformation Stream.)

Digital Asia 2012 Event Analysis Report: Is your business moving fast enough?

At the Digital Asia Executive Brainstorm in Singapore, December 2012, we saw that all economies in SE Asia are now innovating rapidly in digital commerce, entertainment and public sector services, and in mobile in particular. There are both unique opportunities and transferable lessons, and a key theme is that companies need to transform even faster to take advantage of the opportunities and prosper. (December 2012)

Digital Arabia Event Analysis Report: ‘Telcos hold the key to ‘Digital Arabia’ but need to act fast’

At the Digital Arabia Executive Brainstorm in Dubai, November 2012, we found that the region is on the edge of an exciting period of growth in digital commerce, entertainment and public sector services, enabled by mobile in particular. However, success depends on telcos and others working together effectively to put key enabling digital platforms in place, and this is not yet happening fast enough to avoid the stagnation now seen in many Western markets. How can this be changed? (November 2012)
