Operator Open Innovation
Over the last decade, The Internet has transformed a variety of industries from Music, Analog photography and commerce. The Telecoms industry has been impacted as well. In a changing ecosystem, Operators are also adapting and evolving. The report: Mobile network operator innovation in an open ecosystem - 2010 to 2020 charts the evolution of Telecoms over the next decade as the two domains (Internet and Telecoms) converge.
The Internet has a tendency to convert every ecosystem it touches into a platform. This impacts traditional revenue models but it also creates huge opportunities. Currently, Operators are trapped in the dichotomy of ‘Pipe’ vs. ‘Non pipe’. Going forward, many services will be implemented by the Web but many more will be unique to Telecoms including m-health, Smart Grids and Cloud computing.
The report takes a holistic view of the telecoms stack including social networking and Cloud computing which unify the worlds of the Internet and the Mobile Internet. Based on a methodology of analysis, thought leader panels and the key barometers for innovation, the report explores the disruptive trends in Telecoms from the network perspective and its impact on services. It includes our analysis and a numerical model for innovation adoption.
Who should read the report: Third party developers (web and mobile), content developers and creators, mobile operators, online retailers, media outlets, internet/mobile marketers, entertainment companies and content providers, investment & commercial banking, venture capitalist, ISP's, advertising agencies, billing and payment companies, brand managers, user interface architects, consultants.
