Area of expertise: operator digital strategies, social network mobile strategies, startups, digital ecosystems
“Telco operators are renewing efforts to develop new processes and streamline operations, and are turning to startup ecosystems such as Silicon Valley to find the companies that can help them. At the same time, OEMs and Internet companies, such as Apple, Google and Facebook, are beginning to encroach on operators’ traditional lines of business, such as messaging. It is imperative for MNOs to evolve their product lines and not cede the momentum of innovation to their new competitors.”
