Capturing the Enterprise Market
Enterprises are increasingly turning to their service providers to go beyond the network and offer a complete ICT portfolio from enhanced communication services, managing network services, cloud hosting, workforce mobilization through to data and security services. Solution comprehensiveness, quality of service and ease of doing business will all be key decision criteria for the Enterprise when choosing what business to give to their service provider. In this presentation Ian will discuss how the service provider’s business must adapt to exploit this new market and generate revenue growth from the Enterprise customer.
