Re: Is anybody ready for this?
Absoutely. Our research shows very clearly that success of M2M will depend on consumerization of M2M. If SPs dont act fast enought alternate providers, M2M MVNOs will. In fact many of them are doing so today. Operators cannot afford to rely just on their connectivity centric wholesale M2M business if they want to see substantial revenue growth from M2M services.

So, is everyone seeing a sense of urgency here? Like, if network operators don't get their act together to do this, someone else is going to and the market will pass them by?

Re: Is anybody ready for this?
Good question Carol. Its not happening fast enough as it should be. However the intent is there. Next generation of application enablement platforms or AEP's will have to manage data effecitively, have analytics capability and provide API management and application management platform to make this happen. It is then upto SPs and enterprises to adopt these platforms to create personalized and value added services for the consumer segment.

Good question, Carol. Seems like it's happening simultaneously with operators selling customer data to businesses, retail outlets, even advertisers. Not sure if that's the right idea though, when they haven't even begun to master using it internally.

Is anybody ready for this?
Ari,

As network operators continue to try to use Big Data from their own networks to improve what they offer customers, are they ready to enable enterprises to use Big Data and analytics to improve what they deliver? Is all of this happening simultaneously?
