Commoditization is a serious threat to the telecommunications industry. Most CSPs offer similar services at rates designed to win what has become a price war. As a result, many face decreasing margins and difficulty sustaining differentiation based on prices or products alone. On top of commoditization, CSPs also face competition from OTT providers and an increasingly knowledgeable and demanding customer base. With access to growing amounts of data from an ever-increasing number of sources and devices, today’s empowered, savvy consumers know what they want and expect to get it.
In its "Restoring Connections" paper based on research of telecommunications firms, IBM ‘s top ranked Institute for Business Value identified actions CSPs can take to reset customer experience and build brand loyalty through innovative, compelling, personalized services based on deep customer insight. Join us as we discuss how to leverage network and subscriber data to create unique customer profiles, personalize engagement, and improve marketing offers.
At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close. All sectors of IT users—from small to large enterprises, governmental groups, and even cloud service providers (CSPs) who themselves have begun to offer managed cloud services from third-party platforms—touch the hybrid cloud environment. CIOs, especially, face new challenges in deploying or expanding their enterprise presence in the cloud. This white paper examines four critical areas—migration, security, costs, and visibility—where CIOs can make major differences in the successful execution of hybrid cloud strategies. We’ve listed 20 fundamental questions CIOs can discuss with both their internal deployment groups and their external CSP/system integrator in preparation for a migration to or an expansion of hybrid cloud services.
Enterprise applications are moving to the cloud, and for good reasons: The cloud offers a host of potential benefits for both small & mid-sized businesses and large enterprises. These benefits include lower costs, scalable and flexible deployment options, lower capital spending, and access to innovative applications. Communications Service Providers (CSPs), meanwhile, see more opportunities to offer more bandwith to businesses within their footprint.

The digital service revolution is well underway. For communications service providers (CSPs), it means going beyond traditional voice and data and upgrading their entire digital communications infrastructure. Research shows enterprise-class organizations are allocating heavy dollars towards communications solutions and prefer a single provider for digital services. This is a massive opportunity for CSPs to expand their services, generate more revenue, grow profit and increase market share. However, the majority of enterprises reported not receiving a consistently excellent experience with their most recent service contract. As a result, many switch to new providers. CSPs are losing credibility and the loyalty of their customers because of legacy and traditional systems that constrain their ability to act quickly. Enterprises are looking for CSPs who understand their complex business and can offer a full portfolio of digital services with quality and creativity to meet their needs. Dow

The ongoing adoption of cloud computing by communications service providers (CSPs)
continues to fundamentally reshape their business models and technology strategies on
several levels. One such area that is garnering significant attention is the impact of the
cloud on security services. This is because security services and the vital tools they
encompass can be empowered through the adoption of a carrier cloud model. This, in turn,
better positions CSPs to meet the demands of their customers, including those in the small
to medium-size business (SMB) market segment.
The timing of this migration is optimal, since many SMBs now recognize the threats they
face and realize that given their limited IT budgets and lack of security expertise, CSPs are
well positioned to protect them from cyberattacks.
While the opportunity for CSPs is significant, many are hesitant to make a move in this area
because they want to ensure they can address SMBs’ needs and maintain control of the
service in a car
Competitive pressures from peers are forcing CSPs to evolve beyond connectivity and offer incremental valueadded
services to sustain revenue growth. Security services are an obvious candidate for consideration since
awareness of the need for security protections is extremely high due to regular media coverage highlighting
Threat trends and strong alignment with large customer segments are creating opportunity for CSPs to offer
a foundational layer of web protection for every Internet access connection. They can provide a previously
unavailable level of web security that reduces the risk their customers face, without imposing a configuration
or management burden.
Les Centres de Services Partagés Ressources Humaines (CSP RH) n’ont rien de nouveau. Selon un récent article du site HR Magazine1, les trois quarts des sociétés figurant au classement Fortune 500 font appel à des services partagés pour une ou plusieurs de leurs fonctions transverses. Un récent rapport de PWC2 indique quant à lui que 89 % des sociétés qui utilisent des services partagés RH ont atteint leurs objectifs initiaux en termes d’économies d’échelle.
