This IDC study provides IDC's predictions for telco transformation in EMEA in 2016. It covers internal telco operations such as NFV, skills sourcing, and software-centricity, in addition to customer-facing service offerings such as cloud, IoT, as well as Big Data and analytics.
"Telecom is being reinvented and transformed as OTT services, cloud, and digital transformation change the way that customers buy and consume services and engage with service providers," said James Eibisch, research director, IDC European Telecommunications and Networking team. "Telcos have to simultaneously defend against new competitors and partner with them, as they steer a path through a turbulent technology and service landscape."
