Andrew Palmer, Communications Subject Matter Expert - CGI

Digital transformation has become a core priority for communications services providers (CSPs), underpinning an increasing proportion of their investment decisions as they seek to shift to more digitally-focused operating models. However, CSPs are struggling to understand which technologies to prioritize, as well as how to align these with the business outcomes they are seeking to deliver. This webinar explores the platforms, processes and strategies European CSPs need to adopt to make digital transformation a reality.

Topics include:

  • What are the drivers and benefits of digital transformation?
  • What are the technology priorities for a successful transformation?
  • The increasing importance of automation
  • A snapshot of where European CSPs are on their digital transformation journey
  • How European CSPs are struggling to deliver on their technology priorities
  • What are the main challenges CSPs need to address?
  • How should CSPs navigate their way on this journey?

The webinar will share insights from new research conducted by Ovum into European CSPs’ digital transformation journey. To learn more about this, including best practice and what CSPs are doing to transform themselves into digital service providers, watch out for the "The Next Frontier – from Communications Service Provider to Digital Service Provider" whitepaper being published soon.
