SDIS: An Uplifting Event, but the Institutions remain Detached from Reality

At the end of this weblog is an update with a review of some of the slides presented. The SDP Global Summit, renamed Service Delivery Innovation Summit (#SDIS), reached its 10th year. The name change was to reflect the broader scope of service innovation beyond the nebulous and to some extent discredited term SDP, so […]

SDP Global Summit 2013: Its Business not Technology

Previous weblogs and The Services Domain Report have discussed that the term SDP (Service Delivery Platform) is not appropriate.  We’re talking about the Services Domain, see the diagram on the left.  A telco is composed of three ‘domains’ the network domain, business and operational support systems (BOSS) domain, and the services domain.  The services domain […]

New Report: The Services Domain. Market Status, Case Studies, Analysis, and Recommendations

An operator is composed of three domains: Network, IT and Services.  Historically we’ve treated the services domain as something that can be solved by a piece of technology, called the SDP (Service Delivery Platform).  This has resulted in the industry’s slow response to the competitive threats of web-based service providers, which are now starting to […]

What others are Saying About the “The Services Domain. Market Status, Case Studies, Analysis and Recommendations” Report

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” John Donne (1572 – 31 March 1631) In putting together the “The Services Domain. Market Status, Case Studies, Analysis and Recommendations” report, peer review is critical to delivering a quality product, no man is […]

End of Year Entry: Telecoms is Entering Uncertain Times

This entry shares some interesting data on the total global telecom revenue gathered in putting together a report I’m currently writing called: “The Services Domain.
