Futurum Research BSS-to-Cloud Journey Survey: How Operators Can Advance Their Journey – Futurum Tech Webcast
by Ron Westfall | May 18, 2021

In this episode of the Futurum Tech Webcast, my colleague Shelly Kramer and I engage in a drill-down conversation around moving BSS journeys to the cloud, and what are the key takeaways from our recently released research report The BSS-to-cloud journey: Powering innovation across the digital value chain. Our discussion examined:

  • Communications service providers (CSPs) are thoroughly committed to using a multi-cloud strategy in advancing their BSS-to-cloud journey to avoid vendor lock-in restrictions and attaining the agility to optimize their workloads according to evolving business and technical needs.
  • The distinct competitive benefits that each of the major cloud providers, including AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud/Red Hat, and VMware, can specifically offer CSPs.
  • Why the extension of the AWS/Ericsson partnership – with the announcement that AWS has certified Ericsson’s Telecom BSS on AWS – is a high impact development across the telco and digital ecosystem.
  • The top organizational, strategic, and technical considerations that CSPs must know about as they advance or initiate their cloud journey.
  • How innovations and capabilities, such as Infrastructure-as-a-Code and AI/ML engines, can play a vital role in powering cloud journeys.
  • In our survey, CSPs selected elastic deployments, microservices, and automation as their top three cloud design principles and how adhering to these principles can lock-in key financial, operational, and technological benefits.
