From commodity supplier to digital service provider

Telecommunications companies are facing massive infrastructure investments such as FTTH or 4G/LTE. As a common carrier, they offer a commodity product and are confronted with three challenges: cost control, generation of new sources of revenue, and improving the customer experience.
Digital transformation as opportunity

The communications network provided by telecommunications companies is the heart of the connected society. In order to profit from the digital transformation as service providers, they have to take action on three levels:

  • Reduction of the total cost of ownership: Optimize business support systems (BSS) including online and self-care services, payment and access systems, and transfer operations support systems (OSS) to the cloud
  • Innovation: Break into new markets and position themselves, thanks to their technology and innovation expertise, as enabler for the digital transformation of other players
  • Customer experience: Identify the needs of customers and inspire long-term loyalty thanks to multi-channel strategies and added-value services.

On the path to becoming a digital service provider, companies have to develop sophisticated processes and innovative services.
