Sample text

Let’s begin by thinking about some of the rationale for platforms. Apart from extension through acquisition and merger, which is an entirely separate type of innovation beyond this book, operators will be forced to find new sources of revenue. The current sources are the big three: voice, messaging and now data. These are three very large revenue buckets that are heavily seeded by the licensed oligopolistic nature of the telco industry. As the license advantage wanes due to technological and regulatory disruption of one form or another, operators, just like every other business, are being forced to find new revenues through innovation.

A standard pattern here is the use of Application Programming Interface (API) approach that was first seen inside of operating systems in order to achieve the same goal, which was to empower external developers to build new services on top of the core operating system. The key is to allow external innovators to use the platform with as little friction as possible for both parties. The platform owner should not have to iterate the internal IT stack to allow an external service to access the platform APIs.

These iterations take time and money, from little to a lot. The exact amounts aren’t 12 I thought that I should mention this because the word platform is obviously widely used within a variety of contexts. Some telco IT folk reading this book might think that they’re already delivering platforms. Please read on to understand the important distinctions. 11 From closed technology stack to open platform. of interest, just the principle of iteration to the stack, which is not without a lot of friction of all kinds (organizational, political, financial, methodological and so on).
