New Telco 2.0 Research: how to accelerate the implementation of new business model strategies


We’ve just published a free new report based on in-depth research among senior execs in ‘upstream’ industries (e.g. retail, media, IT, etc.) and telcos, that shows that poor communication of the telecoms ‘Telco 2.0’ value proposition and slow implementation by operators is frustrating upstream customers and operators alike.

A key premise of the Telco 2.0 Initiative is that opportunities exist for operators to support third-party businesses in Customer Profiling, Marketing offers, ID & Authentication, Network QoS, and Billing, Payments & Collection. We have previously published research outlining the high level opportunity framework for this in the ‘Telco 2.0 Two-Sided Business Model Opportunity’ report, and subsequently the strategy development activities required in the ‘Roadmap to New Telco 2.0 Business Models’.

Our new analysis identifies strategic customer segments for telcos building new ‘Telco 2.0’ business models, key obstacles to overcome, six real-world implementation strategy scenarios, and strategic recommendations for telcos.
