This IDC Perspective elaborates on communication SP (comm. SP) potential in digital business, which remains untapped because of the lack of focus on digital business outcome and corresponding operational infrastructures to deliver digital services. Asia/Pacific comm. SPs will accelerate spending in operational and monetization infrastructures to release the digital potential that telco business holds."Most telcos' infrastructure virtualization journeys have now morphed into cloud-centric deployments as they realize the importance of open, cloud-native, and containerized workloads for efficient scaling out of applications in a hypercompetitive 5G world," says Hugh Ujhazy, VP, telecom and Internet of Things (IoT), Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ), IDC Asia/Pacific. "The next phase is watching how these cloud-based solution vendors monetize their offerings in a three-way relationship while they defend core connectivity offerings for comm. SPs as 5G proliferates at the edge and expand into developing markets," he adds.
