  6. 6. Senior Telco execs appreciate the need for new business models<br />“I don’t like the word ‘carrier’. We operate customer platforms, billing systems and so on. A carrier is not what Vodafone wants to be…We need to find the right models for all the new content and applications.”<br />VittorioColao, CEO, Vodafone, 2009<br />“We have to find a way for applications to work across devices, platforms and operating systems…I think we should use standard APIs... that would allow developers to access platforms worldwide.”<br />Ralph de la Vega, CEO, AT&T, 2009<br />“The challenge is not the technology. The challenge is not the applications. The challenge is the business model.”<br />Chairman Wang Jianzhou, China Mobile<br />

  8. 8. The Use Cases provide:<br />A detailed and workable illustration of the new business model in operation<br />Insight on how existing ‘best practice’ can be enhanced<br />Direction to investment prioritisation<br />
