Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
@bayte, to your point, I agree that if company time and energy is consumed with politics and internal issues it will detract from the ability to develop the capabilities and deliver better service to the customers.  Effective companies will outperform by delivering that value and gaining customers and market share.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Yeah, you're right.

When it comes down to it, it doesnt matter if Telco partners up with another business in order to bring in video. They do have to get with the "program" a bit when it comes to video and that's the bottom line. Whether they partner up or not.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
dir5288, it gives them another option to get in the game.  But collaboration is not easy either, so again the key requirement is the willingness to find new channels and ways to deliver service value.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Yes, I didnt even think of that.

That would be a great idea to partner up with a party who is more familiar with video. It's possible for Telco to team up and be able to learn about video and what the new upcoming trends with video can go.

It will probably be difficult to make a partnership work with a party who is so comfortable with video nd Telco isn't as much or at all. I thin in the long run, however, it would be in Telcos best interest.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
dir5288, very true.  They could also consider partnering with other providers that have complementary capabilities - again another new thought.  But the idea today of owning everything is not always feasible - becoming partners as part of a larger capability can open up the opportunities.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
Very good point and I agree.

Competition is good for the consumers because it really drives businesses to be the best and put up the best offers. I think with Telco, they have to be prepared to switch over, or like you stated, someone else will. The consumers will eventually leave due to the lack of videos that they could easily get somewhere else.

Many telcos are not prepared for the change to video, but I think they need to think more about the consumers wants and needs as we move to digital over past tradition.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
dir5288, good points.  And if the telcos don't step into that space someone else will.  That's the truth about competition today, it won't wait.  If you can't provide the goods and services, someone else will be more than happy to provide it and win.  Competition is about choice and the consumer today has more power to choose.

Re: Telcos: Not Ready for Video Opportunities
ms.akkineni, that's it.  It is not just the advancement of the technology, but the ability to understand the new capabilities and how those can translate into better services for the customer.  That requires adaptability, as we have said, and the willingness to develop the systems that will add value for the customer.
