Overview:

Communication Service Providers (CSP) are facing profound changes to their business due to many factors including diminished margins on core services, competition from OTT players, and the need to integrate next generation technologies (such as SDN and NFV) to become more efficient. At the same time, CSPs are faced with additional capital costs due to implementation of key initiatives such as Big Data Analytics and IoT.

Recognizing that the need to generate new high-margin revenue streams, leading CSPs are seeking new revenue models based on leveraging their network and subscriber data assets. Telecom Data as a Service (TDaaS) is one of those new models in which CSPs offer Data as a Service (DaaS) to various third party business on an anonymized basis. For example, Verizon, Sprint, Telefonica and other carriers have partnered with firms including SAP, IBM, HP and AirSage to manage, package and sell various levels of data to marketers and other clients.

This research represents the most comprehensive analysis, insights, and data addressing the CSP B2B Data Services marketplace. It includes evaluation of key issues facing CSPs as well as analysis of all critical areas for service delivery including Big Data Analytics, Telecom APIs, and Data as a Service (DaaS) with forecasts for 2015 - 2020. All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.
