The adoption of broadband, cloud, and mobile technologies connecting consumers, companies, and governments is transforming all industry sectors.

Entire industries are being transformed by new platforms, services, and applications. Thus, technology companies must devise specific strategies for developing the products and services that will serve industry-specific needs.

If companies in the high-technology industry are to play a major role in enabling this process, they must transform themselves as well. That means developing the capabilities to scale the benefits of digital innovation up to entire industry organizational functions.

This will increasingly require partners and collaborators to be best positioned to capture the value being created in the new world of digitisation. And this calls for flexible platforms on which to develop their increasingly digitized businesses, while streamlining spending.


Every company in the technology industry will need to enhance their insights into the digital consumer and carefully assess the emerging demand-side consumer dynamics.

This in turn will help companies improve both their innovation efforts and their competitiveness—with the added benefit of a better understanding of the next generation of talent they must employ in order to succeed.

In the new world of digitisation, companies must be able to bring outstanding products and services to market quickly.

Technology companies will also need to develop the ability to see how digitisation might transform their own internal operations, from IT to human resources.

Information technology functions need to strike a balance between risk and performance. But reality often falls short of this goal. That’s because IT’s influence on the business has evolved so quickly that many IT functions are still struggling with how to marry their technical expertise with a new business perspective.

IT companies are now facing broad challenges, including:

  • Increasingly complex IT and business operating models

  • Cost efficiency and transparency demands

  • New regulations and new forms of threat

  • Corporate responsibility expectations

  • Effective management of fluctuating staffing levels

  • Flexible and agile service options

  • Simplified processing and administration of pension auto-enrolment requirements

... Source: McKinsey

The technology and telecommunications sector is characterized by fast paced and constant change.

The IT industry is becoming increasingly digitized, demanding new services like mobile payment platforms and cloud computing. It has changed significantly as a response to shifts in consumer behaviour, and evolving competitive dynamics.

Consumers and businesses are more demanding, expecting service everywhere, forcing operators to boost network capacity and connectivity.

These challenges and opportunities are creating a fundamental shift among operators from the vertically integrated business models that dominated the industry for most of the past decades.

Now, four distinct, horizontal business models are emerging:

Network infrastructure providers

Offering network infrastructure and related services to other market participants.


  • Cost efficiency in the operation of their infrastructure

  • Scalability in replicating their technology platforms and operating models

  • Reliability in terms of network and IT availability and quality

Building these capabilities requires operators to make large investments in new fibre infrastructure.

Business Enablers

Monetize assets by opening up their infrastructures and extending their business strategy.

  • Ability to broker and manage relationships with different partners, offering tailored services

  • Flexibility to cater to the needs of partners with different business models, as to augment portfolio of offerings

Experience Providers
Offer the best combination of targeted applications and content, and a high level of user experience.


  • Ability to develop innovative new applications and services aiming at the best customer experience possible

  • Capacity for excellent customer management and service

Global Multimarketers

Build value by creating synergies among different segments and markets, by managing their portfolios effectively, and by replicating the necessary capabilities from market to market.


  • Ability for organising, operating, and marketing across many different geographies, and thus thinking both globally and locally

  • Capacity to develop different business models and accompanying capabilities that can be replicated in different markets without increasing overall complexity

Overall, in many instances, there are no hard set rules for the new digital platforms, tools and lifecycle. In this industry more than any other, therefore, embracing a strategic, forward-looking business model is critical to survival — and success. With continued pressure from new players entering the market, operators must continually find ways to stay ahead of the game. Strategies include investment in next-generation technologies and alternative network sourcing arrangements.


According to Cerillion as 5G is expected to bring about more efficient and faster connectivity, along with its low latency advantage and capability in terms of virtualisation and cloud technology, telcos will need to give a face-lift to their network infrastructure to keep up the pace.

Also, 5G will impact the Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality and automation space, in addition to the fast-evolving world of the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as define their business models and work out their 5G monetisation strategies, whether that be B2B, B2C or a platform-based approach.

5G coupled with intelligent connectivity can open a whole new world of opportunities for businesses and end-users alike. Everyday tasks such as paying for bus rides, getting live traffic updates, information about congested routes or planning doctor visits with a cab arriving automatically at your doorstep at the scheduled time can all be achieved seamlessly with 5G networks.

Marrying IoT with AI will again bring about a whole new area of opportunities. A clear monetisation strategy is needed to extract the most of this technology. Innovators can offer various pricing models such as subscriptions that will generate a recurring revenue flow or usage-based charging.

With clear advantages in terms of scalability, lower cost models and easier access, cloud-based telco offerings are likely to grow further.

As IoT devices evolve, edge computing will be essential to run real-time services, streamline traffic from IoT devices and provide real-time data analytics.

As 4K HDR TVs become more popular, there will be a higher demand for a richer content experience. This gap can potentially be filled by forward-looking telcos enhancing immersive content.

With hackers increasingly using AI to launch more sophisticated attacks using netbots, data security is a prime consideration for all businesses. Along with that, the introduction of the EU’s GDPR and other similar regulations around the world has added to the challenges.

Security threats in telecoms can stem from the ISP/network side in terms of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and other targeted attacks. On the subscriber side, these attacks can take forms such as malware, subscriber data harvesting and device hacking. All of these security threats can lead to significant loss of dollars and information. Telcos can mitigate the risk to a large extent by working on pre-emptive measures such as decentralising and simplifying their DNS architectures and using real-time context aware DNS transaction analytics, among other such cybersecurity measures.
