On May 5, I had the pleasure to host Andrew Dascombe, Head of Enterprise Mobility at Telefónica Global Technologies and ask him questions about how Telefónica is enabling and transforming the communications and collaboration experience for its employees. The new collaboration environment relies on Microsoft Office 365 and Yammer and it is the next step in bringing Telefónica’s global workforce to the forefront of seamless communication and collaboration.
Over the past few years Skype has given its internal business intelligence platform a complete makeover as part of a program to foster a data insight driven business culture. They perfected the incoming data pipeline and built a cloud-powered analytics solution that showcases the best of Microsoft software, capable of scaling to hundreds of petabytes.
One could argue that no other industry has seen the rapid development that telecommunications has experienced since the 1990s. It has exploded exponentially in terms of the range of service offerings and in how much we all rely on the technology.
With more than 130,000 employees in 24 countries, Telefónica is enabling and transforming the employee experience related to collaboration, providing a much faster, intuitive way with a seamless cloud-based digital integrated experience.
The Telecommunications industry is entering a new period of major transformation. Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) bring cloud computing to Communications Service Provider networks and distributed computing to Digital Service Providers.
