“Ovum believes Telefónica is one of the few service providers that have faced forward when it comes to virtualizing, software-defining and automating its network to support new growth services. This internal transformation has an impact on its onward enterprise services, and its analytics capabilities through its LUCA division are an important resulting point of differentiation. The value of enterprise services lies in how a provider can improve or transform business process, or open up new revenue streams, for its customers. Its LUCA customers provide proof points of this progress”.Evan Kirchheimer Mar 2019 — Ovum
“Telefónica is determined to show a commercial appetite for innovation and to establish a commercially differentiated business model. To do this, it is thinking right across its B2C and B2B services spectrum and has developed its thinking to always include both, in a way that is a bit ahead of other telcos.”David Molony Mar 2019 — Ovum
“Cloud has become a default platform for digital transformation. The industry's major battleground in 2017 will be how, from where and at what price cloud transformation services are delivered to customers. CSPs are also seeing Cloud and connectivity as the foundations for the digital transformations their customers are undertaking. We have long believed there is a need for an innovative approach to delivering on-demand network services from the telco sector, in the same way that the hyper-scalers are delivering compute and storage resources.”William Fellows Jan 2017 — 451 Group
“By focusing their operations on things that customers value, CIOs in other industries can follow Telefónica’s steps and become digital innovators.”
