Adrian Blockus' Publications

  • Sunshine Behind the Cloud: The Cloud Opportunity for Telecom Operators

    • Booz & Company
    • May 25, 2011
    Authors: Adrian Blockus, Olaf Acker, Thomas Aichberger, Germar Schroeder

    Every telecom company has the potential to capture significant value in the evolving cloud ecosystem. Given their assets, telecom operators have several ways they can play. Succeeding in the cloud, however, will require not just a feasible strategy but the ability to develop strong business plans suited to different customers, and a willingness to partner with other cloud players to fill out the offerings that make up those plans.

  • In-Memory Analytics: Strategies for Real-Time CRM

    • Booz & Company
    • November 23, 2010

    We are on the brink of true “in-memory analytics,” a technology that will allow operational data to be held in a single database that can handle all the day-to-day customer transactions and updates as well as analytical requests—in virtually real time. To drive the shift to this new tech­nology, CIOs must make sure the business understands its advantages and devise a governance strategy to manage its rollout and monitor its use.

  • Business Process Empowerment: Powerful New Capabilities for Front-Office Staff

    • Booz & Company
    • September 29, 2011

    This Perspective examines business process empowerment (BPE), a customer-focused, strategically driven alternative to traditional, back-office focused business process management, with particular applicability in service industries. BPE combines process architecture with a continuous improvement culture to drive sales and otherwise improve front-office operations.

  • Benefiting from Big Data: A New Approach for the Telecom Industry

    • Booz & Company
    • April 12, 2013

    Operators seeking to make initial inroads with big data are advised to avoid the usual top-down approach, which sets up a business problem to be solved and then seeks out the data that might solve it. This method does have benefits, but it is unlikely to lead to any serendipitous and surprising results—and it is difficult to execute until a company has demonstrated mastery in its use of data. Instead, operators should begin with the data itself, experimenting with what they have on hand to see what kinds of connections and correlations it reveals.

  • Second-Generation Telecom Outsourcing: Regaining Control and Innovation Power

    • Booz & Company
    • July 17, 2013

    For large telecom operators, outsourcing solely to cut costs is no longer a viable solution. Instead, the next generation of outsourcing deals should be structured to allow greater control over operations, the flexibility to change business models when needed, and the ability to bring new products and services to market quickly.
