A Framework for Business Model Analysis
Forthcoming Strategy Reports
The 150+ page Telco 2.0 Strategy Reports address key issues in-depth on core communications related business models. The upcoming reports are listed below, while current reports can be found here.
"Benchmarking Telco 2.0 Strategy and Operations: lessons from the Global leaders" (2013) Many telcos are experimenting with or implementing Telco 2.0 strategies. What are the opportunities and the key steps? What's working, what do we think will work, and what does good look like in our view? In this major study we will benchmark 6-10 global telcos and highlight key lessons for telcos, vendors, and other players.
"Voice & Messaging 2.0: what is the future for telcos? - optimising revenues, staying relevant, and building new services" (2013) This report develops a new strategic framework for looking at voice and messaging from a telco point of view. What are the trends, where are the future sources of value – and how can operators maintain relevance and revenues? The report will develop a range of scenarios and options – including the use of bundling; operators developing their own Telco-OTT apps; and exploitation of new standards such as RCS and VoLTE. It will examine whether operators should act collectively or alone, and the organisational and technical challenges involved in extending voice beyond the 100-year old “phone call” to new and richer forms of personal communication.
