New Telco 2.0 Resrearch: How to accelerate the implementation of new business model strategies

April 25, 2012 - Guest Blogger

STL Partners recently published a free 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. There is 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’.

The 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.

The free report was sponsored by Openet and the research, analysis and editorial were independently directed, managed and carried out by STL Partners. For more details, you can download the full report here. By Chris Barraclough, Managing Director and Chief Strategist, STL Partners
