Digital Disruption

The age of Digital disruption represents both a challenge and an opportunity for traditional telecoms companies who will be threatened more and more by small, but faster growing innovative companies. To survive and prosper, these established companies need to adopt new business models, provide new services and invest in new operational processes and systems while leveraging and modernizing their existing infrastructure.

Cloud Computing

By 2020, almost 15 percent of operators surveyed by the TM Forum said they expect to migrate all their BSS to the cloud, compared to 4 percent in 2016. And 44 percent believe that more than half of all BSS will be in the cloud by 2020.

5G, NFV and SDN

5G, Network functions virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) is combining to provide innovative and leading Service Providers with both incremental revenue-generation opportunities and cost savings. This has required an overhaul in Service Assurance processes and B/OSS architecture. However, the future is bright for these Service Providers.

The BIG Issues

Communication Service Providers are being overwhelmed by a host of big issues including Big Data, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence. To ignore or embrace will be the difference between survival, revival and growth. Across the globe, there are many examples of successful embracement which should be the first port of call for Service Providers developing a strategic plan.

Microservices

It is no coincidence that service providers deploying Microservice architectures and solutions are large, established Service Providers intent on becoming innovative and agile, and delivering customer experience that matches web-scale companies. Many of these Service Providers have successfully deployed Microservice architectures and established in-house Microservices development approaches and are also filtering software vendors that have also embraced Microservices.
