With worldwide revenues exceeding $1.2 trillion dollars annually, the Telecom industry is one of the largest, serving the needs of an increasingly global and interconnected world. It is also one of the more complex industries due to the following characteristics:

• Multiple products and levels: The product, in the eyes of end-users, is becoming an “experience” that is based on the delivery of voice, video, and data as an integrated package across mobile and fixed infrastructure which, deconstructed reveals multiple layers of hardware, software, and services.

• Rapid technology innovation (and obsolescence): While convergence creates new opportunities for growth through innovation, competition is intense as companies race to gain first-mover advantage — which accelerates obsolescence at all levels.

• Fragmented supply chains: Far from the days of the vertically-integrated monopoly of the past, today’s typical Telecom supply chain is a highly fragmented global operation where multiple enterprises (and supply
chains) must collaborate to design, develop, and deliver a coordinated experience.
