Communication service provider (CSP) CIOs seeking to digitally transform their business support system (BSS) solutions are going up against a massive and oftentimes very confusing wave of technology changes that promise transformation without spelling out how to get there. These technologies include 5G, IoT, and automation, among others.
How the various and evolving BSS-related needs of CSPs can be addressed by these technologies depends on CSPs’ approach to transformation and how well they know the market they are playing in.
