TBR expects continued supply-side and geopolitical disruption in the post-pandemic global economy, but these market challenges will push out rather than reduce total CSP edge compute spend. Digital transformation remains a secular trend that will only be accelerated by ongoing economic and geopolitical gyrations, and edge computing is a key enabling technology for realizing outcomes such as Industry 4.0.

Verizon Business showcases use cases highlighting ROI potential of 5G
TBR believes a focus on equipping sales personnel to help clients identify how 5G solutions can improve business outcomes will be paramount for Verizon Businesses in attracting contract wins. Providing systems integration (SI) services is also beneficial for Verizon Business as recurring revenue from MEC and PCN deployments will be limited by clients using their own or unlicensed spectrum, such as Citizens Broadband Radio Service spectrum. Notably, Verizon did not directly mention collaborations with traditional SI partners at the event, potentially indicating that Verizon aims to work with clients more directly in this area to maximize revenue opportunities. An increased focused on SI services will also strengthen Verizon Business’ existing bonds with its large client base, enabling Verizon to more successfully upsell customers to advanced 5G solutions in areas such as MEC and PCN while helping the operator differentiate and counter hyperscalers and network equipment providers seeking to attract customers in these areas, independent of telecom operators. Verizon Business would face challenges in growing its SI personnel, however, as Verizon will need to compete against leading SI firms to attract talent.
Industrial IoT (IIoT) – Challenges in the marketplace
It is a lot to ask of IT services firms, no doubt, but this is what the clients will be asking as well. A client will be grappling with the need to manage their technology providers across both IT and OT realms as they pursue IIoT aspirations. I think it is important to recognize that the IIoT opportunity remains in its infancy today, with new use cases being found each day as clients harness additional data and discover ways of integrating it within their existing business processes to optimize their operations. As more devices are connected, the needs around partner management will grow exponentially. To answer your question a different way, though, perhaps this all speaks to a need in the market, an opportunity for an IT services and consulting vendor to build its value proposition exclusively around IIoT. As we have said in various reports authored through TBR’s Digital Transformation practice, no one vendor can enable DT outcomes for clients.
