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.

— Sarah Wallace, Analyst, Heavy Reading

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
