For players in the telecoms space, Business Support Systems(BSS) is becoming increasingly synonymous with enhanced level of competitiveness and an accelerated rate of innovation. BSS is today key to the rollout of a whole new array of digital services that are helping Operators globally to expand their service offerings beyond traditional voice and data to more lucrative service plans covering content, contextual offers and IoT/M2M-based services.
AsiaInfo in an analysis of a recent global survey conducted by Telecoms.com Intelligence, shares key findings on the future of BSS, covering operator perspectives on the need for BSS transformation, preffered approaches to BSS upgrades, the innovations taking place in pricing and more specifically, Operators' readiness to move to cloud-based deployments.
Via the survey, AsiaInfo analyzed data from around 300 Operators globally covering mobile network operators, service providers, multi-play integrated operators, fixed-line operators, and cable and satellite operators. Their analysis reveals some intriguing insights into current industry thinking on cloud-based BSS, and more broadly, on IT transformation within their businesses. The whitepaper makes a great reference for Operators looking to augment their BSS capabilities as they look to ways to expand their market share via a continuously expanding portfolio of new and innovative services.
