“The service provider has based its small business and enterprise approach on the ‘four platforms’ concept (physical assets; IT and systems; products & services; cognitive) which drives its overall strategy. It realised earlier than most other global telcos that in order to offer transformative services to businesses, it needs to also digitally transform itself. And so there was a continued focus – which we have heard for the past five years – on demonstrating progress in terms of achieving what it terms an Open Digital Architecture.”Evan Kirchheimer Jul 2019 — Omdia
Omdia research has consistently revealed that large enterprises rely in a multitude of cloud providers to host and run their critical workloads. We do not see this reality changing. However, what has changed is that current events are acting as a catalyst for accelerating digital transformation, creating a quandary for most organizations: they want to digitize more, from networks through to team collaboration, customer experience and marketing functions, but they lack internal resources with skills to map out and manage a wholesale transformation. This is where a partner needs to step in. With its broad range of services from cloud networking and collaboration, data center hosting and SaaS, plus its support for all the major platform providers, bolstered by comprehensive professional services, Telefónica is in a strong position to be the provider that large enterprises rely on to help map out and manage their transformation.Evan Kirchheimer Jul 2020 — Omdia
