New Online Survey on 'Future Converged Services'

Last night we sent out copies of the Global IMS Attitude Survey Report to the 300+ people who participated in the survey.

The survey shows that there is strong consensus that the most important challenge to IMS success is "defining future service propositions". This also rated the lowest in terms of current performance within telcos. (Email me if you want to see the chart showing that: editor@ims-insider.com.)

So, to help explore the issues aroung this, we've set up another online survey looking at the issues around "Creating IMS-based Services". This survey is being supported by Informa (who run 3GSM, IMS World Forum and www.imsvision.com), Moriana Group again, and the TeleManagement Forum.

Here's the link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=680211758609. Please participate!

As before, participants (only) will receive a free summary analysis of the results.

The survey looks at:
- The opportunities/threats of various aspect of 'Convergence' on telcos
- What services approaches will be most successful
- Issues around creating IP-based Converged Services
- Technical & Organisational Challenges
- Who best to learn from about IP-based service development
- Next step priorities

We will publish the results at the end of March.

In the meantime, we have 2 parallel activities going on:

1. In-depth Market Study: As a follow up to the survey just completed, IMS Insider is conducting a major market study looking at "How telecoms operators can develop winning IP-based converged services". Based on in-depth interviews with players across the TMT (Telco, Media and Technology) sector and additional market analysis, this study will be published in March 2006. I will drip feed some of the results on the blog over the next few weeks.

2.Company Briefings and Planning Workshops: Working with our consulting partners, STL, from March we will offer special briefings and planning workshops for operators and vendors to process the output from this work and enhance current strategies. The diagram below shows how this work supports each other.

For more details on all of these, please email

The Editor, IMS Insider
