  8. 8. © 2017 TM Forum | 8 Expected and unexpected ecosystem gains Businesses embrace ecosystems because they anticipate benefits from participation and engagement But the innovation unleashed through ecosystems can also produce new opportunities that may not have even been considered in their absence Benefits from ecosystems can therefore be magnified – what we call dynamic (unexpected) innovation Ecosystems yield planned and unexpected gains1 An edge of unexpected gains over expected gains (revenues) Production Possibility Frontier Output 2 Output1 Source [1]: Production Possibility Frontier http://www.tutor2u.net/economics/reference/production-possibility-frontier Ecosystems create opportunities unattainable in their absence

  13. 13. © 2017 TM Forum | 13 Serving an extended ecosystem of partners As platform provider, CSPs open core capabilities to all digital players Device and component (sensors, medical devices, etc.) providers Applications, content, API providers, platform providers IoT, ecosystem market makers (e.g. health companies, transport organizations, etc.) IoT, ecosystem integrators Agility and reduced costs through micro- services/APIs
  14. 14. © 2017 TM Forum | 14 APIs can unlock new growth opportunities API’s extend the reach of a company’s core assets , allowing them to be shared, reused or even resold as a new source of revenue 90% revenue through APIs 60% revenue through APIs 50% revenue through APIs 1.4B APIs calls per Day 13B API calls per Day >300 API mashups "Gen D" enterprises are: 1.8xmore likely to use APIs than their peers 2.8x more likely to report that APIs given them increased reach 2.0x as likely to find that APIs increased agility and speed 2.6x as likely to find that APIs deliver benefits through partners

  16. 16. © 2017 TM Forum | 16 CSPs still need to improve deploying APIs 45% more 63% Outperformers 40% Telecom Execs 56% Outperformers 40% Telecom Execs 58% Outperformers 40% Telecom Execs 58% more 40% more Outperforming companies extensively share APIs with external parties, something CSPs still need to improve My organization uses APIs extensively to share data with partners My organization APIs are open to any parties that fulfill minimal criteria My organization APIs are used exclusively by specific partners
  17. 17. © 2017 TM Forum | 17 Capture a good share of the market at large As platform provider, CSPs can capitalize on:  network effects  economies of scale  market trust / brand reach  capturing innovations  emerging businesses / startups  high levels of security and privacy that only CSPs can provide By moving to a platform API-based business model, CSPs can benefit from the ’Market at Large’ and enable a new wave of sustainable growth
  18. 18. © 2017 TM Forum | 18 A privacy obligation GSMA chief says mobile industry has privacy “obligation” Mobile World Live, May 10, 2016 Mats Granryd, director general of the GSMA warned that mobile operators must keep the protection of subscriber privacy at the front of their thinking, with new challenges already on the horizon. IoT and big data pose “monumental” risk for operators Mobile World Live, May 10, 2016 Futurist Patrick Dixon warned that “you have the biggest target for criminal activity that the world has ever seen”. Dixon said, “While there is a clear potential for financial damage through cyber security and fraud, perhaps the bigger issue is the damage that can be done to the brand.” CSPs have a trust established brand, but are also the biggest targets for criminal activity and through this there is potential for brand damage
  19. 19. © 2017 TM Forum | 19 Are we reaching a tolerance threshold for trust? 3% 5% 25% 25% 42% Not critical at all Not so important to know Important to know Very important to know Very critical to know People want to know that their personal data is kept private and secure Global consumer survey: 42 countries n = 20,745 How critical is it for you to know that your provider keep your personal data private and secure
  20. 20. © 2017 TM Forum | 20 Globally digital trust has decreased in last 3 yrs In the last years, consumer’s trust in companies has decreased globally, but less for CSPs; in most emerging countries surveyed trust in CSPs has even grown CSPs for each country -23% -22% -21% -18% -17% -15% -14% -14% -13% -13% -12% Change in digital trust in last 3 years Type of organization CSPs Video streaming players Device manufacturers Financial organisations Online retail stores Search engine companies Pay TV providers Physical retail stores App developers Social media companies Digital unicorns

  22. 22. © 2017 TM Forum | 22 Ready or not? Ask yourself these questions • How will your organization exercise its distinctive assets to its advantage in digital ecosystems? • In what ways can your enterprise plan for growth, given the greater opportunities that partnering in digital ecosystems makes possible? • How can you form relationships with newer, nontraditional industry participants to provide the digital relationship and customer experience that today’s digital customers demand? • Are your strategies and initiatives to increase trust in line with the monetization opportunities in your market?
