New, disruptive digital technologies are being introduced at an increasing pace to a multitude of different markets globally.
- Every industry is affected by the connected world of digital services and the “connected world”
- Technology and services revenue connected to the burgeoning “Internet of Things” (IoT) marketplace will grow at an 8.8% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2012-2017 – increasing from $4.8 trillion to $7.3 trillion – according to a February 2014 IDC report
- With over 20-50 billion devices connecting online in the next five years, the Internet of Things (IoT) transformation is the next great ICT disruptive event that will change both social norms and how business is conducted in a new technology framework.
- Ecosystems have become the primary model to deliver Digital Services
TM Forum’s Open Digital program helps service providers, enterprises and their suppliers succeed in the digital world by making it easier to create, build and operate complex innovative services. Our goal is to enable an open digital ecosystem where new services can be delivered quickly, easily and securely using a wide range of business models and partners. The implementation of this ecosystem marks the first comprehensive effort to understand and meet the needs of all digital services stakeholders: consumers, developers, providers, operators, and regulators.
TM Forum is connecting a wide range of industry verticals and leveraging the work of many organizations, we’re collaboratively developing a complete ecosystem for digital services including the tools, APIs, information models, business processes, and extensive best practices needed for partnership and on-boarding.
This program significantly advances the application of Frameworx and TM Forum’s Open Digital Ecosystem Program work by facilitating collaboration for Digital Services transformation with other standards bodies, industry groups, and key stakeholders. As the world turns digital, the complexity of integrating and managing digital services is only growing. New services are created everyday through a complex value fabric of partners. But delivering customer satisfaction and long-term success demands end-to-end manageability, security, scalability, and efficiency.
