With margins being squeezed by increasing competition, and investments in new technologies like 5G only beginning to produce returns, telecom companies are transforming the way they allocate capital.
Using advanced analytics, operators can run thousands of simulations to prioritize capital spend across a portfolio of projects, allowing for greater transparency and quicker decision making.
To recover and thrive, businesses must embed agility into the way they manage capital – driven by trusted data to enable predictability, and active governance to improve accountability through transparent communication.
As the pressure for environmental sustainability builds, telcos need to begin embedding sustainability issues into their everyday business decisions in a structured, comprehensive way.
Decision Analytics in Telecom
No other capital-intensive industry contends with the sheer volume and variety of decisions—or the intense rate of technology and market change—that Communication Service Providers, Network Operators, and Infrastructure Providers face today. In addition to the thousands of programs already underway, new technologies are enabling an infinite number of new, potentially lucrative use cases and business models. But as the number of investment opportunities skyrockets, so does the complexity of decision-making. To thrive in this environment, telecom companies must embrace change and strike the right balance between cost-effectively managing business-as-usual activities and investing for future growth.

Sensitivity analysis can easily be performed to explore the impact of different funding, timing, and resource constraints on value and risk, and build a realistic, deliverable plan to achieve your strategic goals.
Proactively manage and mitigate operational risks
Many organizations in the telecom industry struggle to forecast sustainment needs across the diverse asset types that exist within their networks. Copperleaf can help your organization forecast and optimize asset performance for the next one to one hundred years by calculating the risk, cost, and value over time for each asset and optimal intervention dates. This allows asset managers to create the best sustainment strategy while accounting for all business constraints.
