Enterprises are leveraging more digital services than ever before, presenting service providers with the unique opportunity to become the single point of contact for delivering and enabling business-critical solutions. By offering service providers what Analysys Mason calls the Enterprise Platform as a Service (EPaaS), operators can tap into a new market and enhance their B2B revenue streams, all while retaining enterprise customers and improving loyalty.
What is EPaaS? According to Analysys Mason’s report, Managed Enterprise Platform as a Service (EPaaS) Provides a Shortcut to New Enterprise Revenue Opportunities, EPaaS is a digital platform that gives enterprises a one-stop shop for business applications, IT services and cloud connectivity—all unified with a digital experience.
The report identifies that IoT, connectivity and public cloud applications will likely make up the bulk of operator revenue in the next few years, meaning EPaaS will become increasingly critical for remaining competitive in a market that is being inundated by services and myriad provider types.
