For communications companies - whether focused on telecommunications services or media content - these are challenging times. Markets are saturated with new offerings, and margins continue to diminish. In response, communications service providers (CSPs) are concentrating on improving offers of voice, content, and data services. These offers have the best chances of being accepted when they are attractive to the customer - and made in real time and through the right channel. SAP is in a strong position to help CSPs, with products that enable requisite functionality for real-time offer management optimised within the context of enterprise processes.

*SAP defines business software as comprising enterprise resource planning and related applications.
