Introduction

Telcos can avoid inevitable market decline by exploiting their core skills, assets and relationships to create new sources of growth based on two-sided business models.

This 'Executive Briefing' provides an overview of the Telco 2.0 opportunity for telecoms operators and explores the potential to create 'platform' businesses in the areas of retail, wholesale and B2B2C value-added services.

It outlines the strategic moves required by operators to realise the Telco 2.0 opportunity, and articulates why Telco 2.0 'two-sided business models' are a better long-term proposition than other strategic options open to operators.

The resulting issues were initially addressed in depth in the Telco 2.0™ Market Study in 2006 (updated in 2007), and while much of our underlying analysis remains the same the pace of change has accelerated - and the world has moved on. We've therefore now re-addressed the questions given the learning of the last two years in this new report, which can be provided either as a solus piece or in combination with the original report to give a comprehensive overview.

Who should read the report

The report is for those with responsibility for making money from telecoms services. It is for anyone who is concerned about the pressures on the existing telco business model and who is seeking to identify new growth opportunities. This includes institutional investors, regulators, CxOs, strategy leaders at telecoms operators, their suppliers and partners, and business leaders in adjacent markets looking to enter the telecoms market.

Key Questions Answered

The overarching questions addressed in this research report are:

  • "What are the key drivers of change and the key areas of strategic focus now?"
  • "How do we evolve our business model to survive and prosper in this fast changing world?"

The new research provides strategists and decision makers in Telcos, related industries and industry bodies the latest in-depth perspectives and analysis of the market at a macro level from Telco 2.0™. It also serves as an in-depth introduction to the key principles and premises of the Telco 2.0™ world.
