GlobalData Perspectives on 2017’s most important dynamics in Global Telecom and IT

The surprising political events of 2016 caught many people off-balance. But in the telecom and technology worlds, such turmoil is the norm. Without it, you might even argue that the market wouldn’t move forward at all. Indeed, the three mighty pillars on the minds of all involved with the service provider and enterprise technology markets – Disruption, Transformation, and Innovation - all imply a significant alteration of the status quo.

The leaders in these markets know, however, that while there is risk and there are threats, opportunity and competitive differentiation are the rewards for embracing change, and capitalizing on it.

2017 may not be as fascinating politically, but many of the most important drivers in telecom and IT, will get further definition in the coming months, with their potential impact coming into sharper focus and strategies to capitalize on them emerging. No segment of the Telecom and IT markets will remain untouched.
