Meet us at these events

On May 15th 2017

ADL hosted its 7th annual Telco CEO and Private Equity Event in Vienna with an impressive attendance of telecom CEO’s, investors and leading banks. The topic this year was on the impact of digitalization on the configuration of telecom operators.

The telecom industry is not in a stable state. In fact, due to the increasingly large strategic and technical-option space, we expect operators to become more diverse. Within the next five years, the structure of operators will likely have changed significantly.

Growth in Europe is marginal and mainly volume driven, resulting in limited cost-cutting opportunities and growing demand for network capacity that can span various infrastructure. In addition, the new B2B2x segment is gaining in importance. We expect it to reach USD 276bn – or 8% of global ICT spending – by 2020. As such, it should be one of the fastest-growth fields for telcos to focus on.

Eventually network resources will become elastic, transparent and accessible – moving far away from today’s often slow, cumbersome and inefficient architectures. We will see web-like collaboration between companies emerge, as well as cross-border competition and accelerated international expansion.

Operators will review how they manage their diverse portfolios of assets, which will result in establishing dedicated approaches that suit each asset class. Certain assets, such as fiber and small cells, will likely work in asset-sharing models. As many copper-network owners embark on fiber-upgrade journeys, they will need to figure out how to balance the need for fiber sharing with their legacy roadmaps.

This drives our conclusion: We expect to see an increase in the importance of non-tangible assets in the sense of capabilities. For example, the “degree of openness” of an operator to third parties, the “market-oriented approach to assets”, and the ability to “take design responsibility for the software that runs their factories” will gain importance when assessing operators. As a result, evaluating them and making strategic investment choices will be much more difficult.

Heads in the Cloud

Oct 24-27, Role: Panel Chair

The rapid spread of cloud computing has drawn significant attention and scrutiny in the media over recent months. It has also raised policy questions concerning how people, organizations, and governments handle information and interactions in the cloud environment. While moving to the cloud offers recognized benefits of cutting capital expenditure and enabling the more efficient use of computing resources, questions of information security, data privacy, interoperability, reliability and liability persist and need to be considered carefully and addressed rigorously. Lack of interoperability and portability between providers makes it difficult to migrate data from one service to another -: good for cloud service providers, but not necessarily good for end-users. What happens if the business goes bust, or decides to change?
