Technology advancements and pressure to outperform competitors have forced CSPs to reconsider the fundamentals of their entire business approach.
Stakeholders want higher returns, regulators want more stringent standards and customers want more added value services. To respond to the industry’s new challenges and reap its opportunities, operators must profoundly change their IT strategy. With disruption driving more and more operators to see their future as Integrated Digital Service Providers (IDSPs), the question is how to govern the transition.
Accenture Consulting applies a holistic approach that brings together, Agile, Waterfall, DevOps and next generation delivery methodologies and tools. We help our clients achieve multispeed IT that enables them to keep pace with industry evolution.
Until a few years ago, Communications Service Providers adopted the Waterfall methodology as their standard approach to projects. In a more static environment, it was the secure way to go. In today’s faster-paced and digitally driven ecosystem, the Agile methodology has emerged as a necessary alternative: it affords operators greater flexibility to rapidly respond to evolving customer demands, it enables nimbler realignment to new regulatory rules and helps keep a lid on costs. Nowadays, choosing between Agile, Waterfall, Iterfall and Test & Learn is becoming less of a choice.
Smart operators are seeing that they need a blend of all of them. But how can the new and the traditional methodologies be combined without causing more headaches than they are worth? At Accenture Consulting, we have drawn on our global experience, industry competences and unique skill sets to build a compelling solution that seamlessly balances the strengths of all methodologies.
