Sydney, December 7, 2012 – International Data Corporation (IDC) recently announced that 2013 will be the year the telecom industry looks to reduce costs in an era of hyper transformation and focus on the deployment of new services around next-gen communications and mobility. Telecom providers and equipment suppliers will also need to consider the types of game-changing technologies that can potentially set network operators on a new course for provisioning new services, but also engaging with the ecosystem differently.
More insights are revealed in IDC's forthcoming report, ANZ Telecommunications 2013 Top 10 Predictions.

"This report details what we think this looks like in practical terms. The IDC four pillars — Big Data, cloud, mobile, and social — are important themes that are interwoven through the predictions."
