Hyper connectivity and Digital Convergence are changing the landscape for customers as well as enterprises providing communications and digital services for the digital lifestyle. Service Providers are increasingly facing pressure to introduce new products and services faster, and to constantly innovate and lower their costs to remain competitive in this fast changing world.
While this problem is felt by every service provider in the industry, it is particularly challenging for smaller regional operators who have a loyal customer base, but are constrained by limited resources and increasing competitive pressures from Tier 1 players in the market.
A critical barrier to achieving market parity and competitive advantage can be traced to the limitations of legacy order to cash systems, which are typically expensive to maintain, slow to change, require manually intensive processes and generate large amounts of rework.
