1 EXPERIENCE ICT Ericsson IT Managed Services

2 Evolve the Experience BUILT WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS IN MIND Studies show that network and service performance are the most important factors in ensuring customer satisfaction. Contented customers are loyal, spend more, and are more likely to make recommendations to their friends and colleagues. EVERY CHALLENGE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR SUCCESS As the Networked Society develops, operators are faced with a variety of new challenges. There are three key areas where these challenges are particularly demanding: customers, technology and finance. Each of these areas can be successfully addressed through an end-to-end managed services agreement. CUSTOMERS Customers are becoming accustomed to having a wide variety of services provided by agile and innovative OTT players. In order to remain relevant, operators need to keep one eye on the market at all times, ensuring constant innovation and the ability to bring new products to the market quickly. TECHNOLOGY Data traffic is growing exponentially. In order to match and exceed their competitors, operators need to continually innovate and be willing to invest in new technology. They must also be capable of handling the complexity involved in converging technologies across many different dimensions. FINANCE Average revenue per user (ARPU) has declined over the past few years, in correlation with the decline of voice in favor of data. The number of users is increasing, along with their expectations. Operators need to come up with new ways to combat the resulting financial pressures. A managed services agreement can help to alleviate these pressures and reduce risk. 2 IT MANAGED SERVICES
