Recent Publications

Closing in: The development of CPaaS towards a cohesive market structure
Communications platform as a service (CPaaS) allows businesses to develop and manage communications features without needing to develop and maintain the infrastructure on the back end of the service. CPaaS makes it easier than ever for companies to create differentiating customer communication experiences while promising to reduce costs and speed up innovation.
Winning the Telecom Famine
In today’s challenging market environment, telecom management often implements spend-based segmentation and reactive pricing with a focus on short-term subscriber acquisition goals. This approach, however, has been at the expense of significant market value and a paradigm shift is now needed to escape the downward pricing spiral.
Catching the Smart Home Opportunity
Smart Home services are poised for strong growth and represent an attractive opportunity for telecom operators to expand their services and revenue streams. Telcos have several competitive advantages, including their internet gateways, strong customer relationships, and sales and support networks. However, partnerships are essential and timing is critical.
