Continuing globalization, exploding data traffic, and slow revenue growth are influencing all aspects of business models and operations for communication service providers (CSPs). In addition, telecom CxOs foresee major changes in how they interact with their consumers who are more informed, more powerful and less loyal. CSPs need to capture benefits from synergies and economies of scale to deliver superior margins and returns to shareholders, find ways to compete against – or partner with – global OTT providers, monetize the value of data to close the mobile data revenue gap, invest in new social business models of communications to connect and get in tune with today’s digital consumer, and dramatically reduce overall and unit costs.
