Key trends and strategies in the operator business services market in the Middle East

Many operators in the Middle East are increasingly looking to capitalise on opportunities in non-connectivity services to businesses in order to return to previous revenue growth levels. These operators want to grow revenue in new ICT markets, but they often struggle in the private sector, particularly in the SME market, and they tend to delay the launch of new services such as SD-WAN as a result. 

In this webinar, Tom Rebbeck, Research Director of the Operator Business Services and IoT research practice, and Karim Yaici, Lead Analyst for the Middle East and Africa programme, will discuss the following.

  • Market forecast for the Middle East business market, including core services (such as broadband and mobile) and adjacent areas (such as cloud).
  • An overview of the business strategies of key operators in the region, including those of Etisalat, Ooredoo and STC.
  • New business products and services deployed by telecoms operators and the obstacles that these operators face when commercialising them.
  • Implications of these trends for the Middle Eastern market and recommendations for local operators.

The webinar will consist of a 35-minute presentation followed by a 10-minute Q&A session.
