Uncover trends in innovation and potential partners


With our dedicated analyst teams focused on specific service and technology domains, we are well placed to help you spot and react to trends in successful innovation.

The services ecosystem is undergoing a fundamental restructuring with the balance of power shifting irrevocably away from operators and service providers to Internet and platform service providers and vendors. Network-based services are giving way to over-the-top services.

For telecoms operators this has a fundamental impact on where future opportunities may exist. The consumer market, which has been the focus of the mobile sector for the last 15-20 years, is now starting to look more challenging in terms of developing new revenue streams.

Operators are now starting to look for partnership opportunities both to help them develop new consumer services and to push into the emerging enterprise space. M2M communications, vertical markets and embedded devices hold rich potential and Informa Telecoms & Medias has now built up substantial expertise in this area.

In the meantime, operators are continuing to seek opportunities to invest in emerging markets which continue to show rich potential both in mobile and broadband communications. Informa Telecoms & Media has deep knowledge of emerging markets with teams of in-country analysts in all five continents. Their understanding of these markets, backed by rich, granular data, gives our customers the opportunity to build an in-depth picture into where the best investment opportunities lie.
