How service providers can unlock the coveted SME market

Article | June 7, 2021

For communications service providers, questions still loom over how 5G will be monetized. Many have voiced the view that the enterprise segment is where 5G will make its money, with potential use cases across a breadth of verticals including the automotive, manufacturing and utilities industries to name a few. However, if service providers focus more on delivering 5G business use cases to small and midsized enterprises (SMEs), this market segment could prove to be a fruitful source of revenue. As 5G deployments continue to roll-out globally, CSPs are focused on deriving value from projects and partnerships with large multinational enterprises. And they are eager to do so quickly to assure payback from their $1trillion investments in the next generation network. However, are CSPs blinkered in their approach to generating ROI from 5G? Are they limiting themselves by focusing too much on a small segment of the enterprise market, that to date has limited CSPs' involvement in early 5G projects, reducing them to mere providers of connectivity?

But the much-anticipated rollout of the lightning-quick 5G network may now be in the slow lane. Because of the increasing spread of the disease in many European countries, various 5G network spectrum regulators have postponed the long-awaited auction of the 5G spectrum. These auctions were crucial for network providers to launch or expand the already existing 5G network systems.

Augmented Data Management: Its Importance and How it Transforms an Enterprise

Article | November 11, 2020

In the digital era, data is at the heart of an enterprise. So, managing the data has become the topmost priority of any organization today. As the data volume increases at a 10X rate, this data growth impacts many organizations in the form of the multiplication of in-company heterogeneous storages, remote sites, and cloud storages. This will require moving the data which results in time, infrastructure, and cost constraints. So, the need for a consolidated data management solution arises which uses AI automation to reduce time and infrastructure costs across the data value chain. As enterprises are increasingly standardizing on augmented analytics, it brings together two distinct worlds of data and analytics. This collision enhances interaction and collaboration between the two worlds shaping the associated paradigm in the market i.e. augmented data management. Augmented data management (ADM) utilizes AI/ML to automate manual data management tasks allowing highly skilled technical resources to focus on high-value tasks. According to Gartner, by 2022, data management manual tasks will be reduced by 45% through the addition of machine learning and automated service management.
