This IDC Market Perspective provides highlights from the Vodafone Analyst Summit that took place on February 12 and 13, 2020, in London. During the event, Vodafone's executives provided a comprehensive overview of the business year to date and laid out the service provider's vision, strategic priorities, and positioning toward 2025.
"Vodafone will continue to build out investments in 5G, mobile private networks, and virtualization to extend its core connectivity business to adjacent areas such as IoT, mobile edge computing, SD-WAN, and network-as-a-platform services," said Melissa Fremeijer, senior research analyst, European Enterprise Communication Services. "With the required technology capabilities in place, the organizational and go-to-market transformations Vodafone presented clearly indicate the company is moving in the right direction to expand its services portfolio beyond pure connectivity."
