Comments Off on Telecom Operators Investing in Cloud Strategy to Bring Innovative Services and Products: IBM 16

Indian telecom operators are now aggressively investing in cloud strategy to bring innovative services and products to the market while looking to implement data analytics to get more revenue from subscribers, technology major IBM has said.

“They (mobile phone operators) have realised that their investment in cloud strategy will be very useful for their overall service portfolio,” Suhas Bhide, executive, Global Delivery, India, at IBM, told ET. “We have telecom clients who are innovating in one space and disrupting in another space, leveraging the cloud technology.”

For instance, European telcos have started innovative services line ‘Gaming on Demand’, wherein the gaming structure is on a cloud and a user can play it through a remote control by paying a subscription. Bhide said such innovative offerings open up a new revenue model. “There are a few telcos in Europe who have done this, and we are expecting the trend to come to India soon,” he said.  By Danish Khan/ET Teleecom
