Huawei's Road to Telco Digital Transformation: IDC Feedback from the Operations Transformation Forum
By: Mike Cansfield
This IDC Market Note identifies highlights from Huawei's recent Operations Transformation Forum (OTF). It outlines Huawei's view that "going digital" is much more than digitization, and achieving this necessitates a root-and-branch transformation in how the telco operates. It also outlines key highlights from OTF and illustrates the progress made by Turkcell, KPN, and Telefónica with support from Huawei.
"Huawei's approach to digital transformation is to be admired because it addresses how telcos operate — the very heart of these enterprises. This requires not just know-how, but also platforms to deploy this capability, and reference cases to validate the approach," said Mike Cansfield, associate vice president, IDC's Telecommunications Insights: European Technology Priorities and Strategies.
