Telecom companies should leverage their unique position to take advantage of the managed mobility services – the fastest growing segment of managed services.
The fastest growing segment of managed services.
Across the world, telecom companies are facing declining revenues from traditional voice and data services. They are looking to newer content-and application-based, multi-media services as a way to boost revenues. Managed mobility and cloud services provide another great way to boost their revenues.
Unless Telcos are prepared to invest heavily in managed mobility services themselves, they will need to partner with service providers in order to deliver managed services to their small business clients. With the Managed Enterprise Mobility Service Delivery Platform (MEM SDP) the potential for sophisticated business models and rapid return on investment will start to materialize in the ability to recruit smaller managed service providers to quickly create new managed mobility and cloud services generating revenue and driving more traffic to the Telco's networks.
When application platforms enabled mainstream software developers to quickly build mobile software; and app stores made it possible to reach a large number of customers – the result was an outburst of new products and services.
Telco's can gain a substantial foothold in the mobile managed services market. Similar to the applications ecosystems (app stores and app development communities), Telco's can offer and manage the lifecycle of thousands of innovative managed mobility services and a vast pool of managed service providers.
