Mentioned below is the wide spectrum of offerings that ensures a smooth transformation journey, tailored to the service providers requirement: Business & Operational Health Check Business consulting services to assess key aspects and identify operational pain-points Business Alignment Services to identify priorities in terms of business process re-engineering, system architecture modifications and vendor consolidation required to get to the target state Designing the Operations Model Services to re-engineer and harmonise business processes to create a lean operating model aligned to the target state Cross Programme Alignment Services to identify interdependent programmes and define a roadmap for the end-to-end transformation Implementation Services Services to design, build and operate the target systems, reuse existing systems and close unwanted systems to achieve the target state of transformation Transformation Goals Tech Mahindras transformation services portfolio focuses on five primary service areas within which it offers proven standard-based solutions. These include: Revenue Uplift Convergence Customer Experience Business Agility Operational Efficiency2
  5. 5. Revenue UpliftDemand for consistent and high service levels is at a rise and service providers are on the look out for emergingopportunities as the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) is flattening. As the pace of business intensifies, the need forinnovative communications services becomes inevitable. To fully capitalise on these opportunities a re-evaluation ofthe way technology can be used to drive business results becomes imperative.Improved Operational EfficiencyGreater efficiency is a prime goal for all businesses, more so in the intensely competitive and rapidly changingcommunications sector. Greater operational efficiency translates into higher margins and boosts growth . TechMahindra with its offerings enables telcos to address the operational challenges and focus on their core business,resources and customers.Optimising and streamlining existing network operations and business processes is the key to reduce OPEX andimproving operational efficiency. Eradicating silos that isolate operations and Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS),enable greater automation and centralise operations management. They also reduce integration, maintenance andoperational costs and speed up the time-to-market.Enhance Customer ExperienceCustomer experience has gained currency with falling revenues and intense competition from different telecomoperators. Tech Mahindra has been in the forefront of leading the change for its customers.Business AgilityResponsiveness to changing market dynamics and time to market is one of the most important aspects for any telco.Tech Mahindra provides the operator an advantage of standardised processes, pre-integrated BSS/OSS systems toaddress time to market pressures. This is further accelerated by the prevalence of the "Telco-in-a-box" solutions thathelp diminish the time, attention and resources dedicated by the telco.Reduced OpExToday networks are undergoing a dramatic transformation under the combined effect of factors ranging from demandfor additional capacity to convergence, towards Next-Generation Networks (NGNs).Telcos can take advantage of the investments made by Tech Mahindra in IT and network infrastructure to reduce theirup-front investment in a next-generation infrastructure. This will enable them quickly launch new services and gain acompetitive advantage. 3
