Business Breakfast with IDC

Searching for new business opportunities: from classic telco to digital services provider

Moscow, September 3, 2019


Telecommunications companies are seeing their revenue from the provision of traditional services continue to decline. According to IDC, the average annual worldwide growth rate of revenues from fixed and mobile services (including Internet connectivity) for the 2018-2022 period will be about 1%.

Telecom operators are faced with the urgent task of finding new sources of income and developing lines of business. Their future depends on how quickly they can find their niche in such technological areas as the Internet of Things, cloud services, 5G, Big Data/analytics, and blockchain.

What challenges will companies face in the near future? Where should they look for growth points, and how can they create new offers for the market using the best telecom and IT capabilities? What strategies to diversify the telecommunications business have proven successful? How can telcos best combine various advanced technologies to achieve a demonstrable synergy?
