Cloud-native architecture: an essential ingredient of future CSP monetisation platforms

John Abraham Principal Analyst, Research

"CSPs' adoption of new architecture frameworks for monetisation platforms will radically alter the traditional CSP–vendor relationship."

Revenue management systems account for a large portion of the overall communications service provider (CSP) spend on software support systems, mainly due to the high cost of maintaining legacy frameworks. As digital transformation takes centre stage, CSPs are looking closely at how they can evolve their legacy revenue management architecture into next-generation monetisation platforms based on modern software technologies.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the key drivers for the shift to cloud-native architecture frameworks within monetisation platforms
  • a discussion on how the cost of supporting legacy frameworks is increasingly driving CSPs to adopt modern architecture models
  • a brief discussion on how CSPs should approach moving to next-generation monetisation frameworks
  • a discussion about key considerations for vendors wanting to partner with CSPs in their transformation of traditional revenue management systems
  • key recommendations.
