This IDC Market Perspective discusses how telecom providers are shifting their infrastructure and the opportunities this presents to professional services firms.
"Market forces are requiring telecom service providers to innovate — specifically, deliver more digital, edge, and IoT services to their customers. Software-defined infrastructure offers an architecture that can reduce operating cost and accelerate time to market for digital services. The shift away from proprietary stacks is an opportunity for professional services that can provide comprehensive consultancy services that focus on all aspects of transformation, including technology, people, and processes," says Jed Scaramella, program director, Infrastructure Services.
