CIO’s and Next Gen Telco/MSP’s about simplifying business models and re-engaging to meet new business standards
Cloud computing, Everything as a Service, Internet of Things. Three important technological trends that are defining the IT landscape of organizations today and in the near future. The basis for these three is world class connectivity. However: CIO’s have great difficulty in harnessing connectivity skills in their teams. They’re looking for third parties that have that important knowledge and offer specific connectivity related services. Telco’s are in a unique position to be that third party of choice. But are they capable of convincing CIO’s of the fact that a modern telecom company is more than ‘just a bandwidth vendor’?
- CIO’s focusing on technology trends like artificial intelligence, blockchain and cloud computing, are in danger of losing track of the all-important basis for their IT strategy: the connectivity.
- Telco’s must capitalize on their knowledge of connectivity: instead of solely concentrating on selling bandwidth, they should offer additional services that reflect their connectivity expertise.
- CIO’s have an outdated idea of telco’s. Nowadays, a modern telecom company offers a broad variety of services that complement their connectivity offerings: from security to SD-WAN to IoT related platforms and even digital transformation services.
