Problem: Telecoms technology inhibits operator business model change (Part 1)

We’ve published a new research paper “Problem: Telecoms technology inhibits operator business model change (Part 1)”.

The last few years have seen attempts by many leading telecoms operators to refresh their business model and generate new sources of growth and value. Now many digital initiatives are being scaled back. Telefonica and Telenor, two companies in the vanguard of the ‘drive to digital’ have both disbanded their digital organisations. In the first of two reports, STL Partners explores why efforts to yoke platform and product innovation businesses to a traditional infrastructure business have proved so difficult. The financial and operational constraints associated with traditional telecoms - particularly the need for long investment cycles in ‘one-function’ infrastructure - have made achieving the switch to ‘agile digital innovation’ all but impossible. But all that may be about to change and the future could be a little brighter.
