As service providers grapple with copious amounts of data they are also trying to provide innovative products and services that will help retain customers and increase revenue. More and more, communications service providers are willing to outsource their BSS/OSS needs as they deal with next-gen services such as M2M and cloud. Outsourcing in telco was originally more for cost savings and is now also for expertise.

Though having had some bad outsourcing experiences in the past, service providers are now smarter and are being very selective and demanding with new outsourcing contracts. Vendors are aware of this increased demand and are answering with an increased emphasis on their expertise and end-to-end managed services that keep the service providers customer satisfaction in mind.

Many vendors in the space are rolling out customer experience management (CEM) and advanced analytic solutions as part of the race to win these managed services customers and are well aware that communications service providers are preparing and anticipating M2M. It will come down to which vendors will be able to understand the service providers' needs and deliver and provide support consistently; this will determine the lion's share in the telco BSS/OSS managed services space.

Heavy Reading's new report, The Changing Landscape of BSS/OSS Managed Services features the BSS/OSS offerings of 17 managed services offerings of vendors in the telco space and what trends and growth they anticipate in BSS/OSS managed services over the next two years.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
