Infosys surveyed 80 executives from the Telecom industry with over US$1 billion in revenues across the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). The respondents were senior executives and leaders involved in cloud initiatives representing both technology and business functions.
The survey was aimed at understanding the cloud initiatives for Telecom companies. Some interesting findings from this survey:
- The respondents harbored concerns such as selecting the right approach (60 percent), need for a dedicated transformation team (51 percent), and alignment between IT and business on the road map (49 percent) before initiating cloud programs.
- When implementing cloud programs, respondents view collaboration with external services providers, aligning legacy systems, navigating existing agreements and promoting cultural change internally as significant challenges.
