    That’s what we heard first thing in the morning when TM Forum CEO Nik Willetts kicked off this year’s plenary session in rainy Nice, France. In fact, Willetts quoted a McKinsey study saying 70% of transformation projects fail; we found the 50% by directly asking some of our service provider relationships participating at the event, including Orange. And to clarify what we mean by “fail,” transformation projects are costly and do not necessarily deliver the planned ROI, nor do they contribute to lower opex. Overall, the event, rebranded Digital Transformation World (DTW), was as well attended as last year although we found the aisles of the show floor particularly empty on the last day, Wednesday, May 16. Does this mean everyone had had enough of digital transformation? Probably not—most vendors including Amdocs, Ericsson, HPE, Huawei, and Netcracker were very satisfied with the quality of the meetings conducted with their customers.

    In the media management market, migration from selling equipment-based solutions to service-based solutions is deploying massively this year. Nearly two-thirds (62 percent) of global revenue was service-based, growing to 63 percent by the end of 2017 and expected to grow to 66 percent in 2021. The overall market grew 7 percent in 2016 and 5 percent in 2017, but this growth rate is expected to slow to 4 percent in 2021.

    Despite unabated need for service providers to outsource non-core tasks, 2017 was marked by slower growth in the service provider outsourcing market. Worldwide revenue reached $67 billion last year, an increase of just 1 percent over 2016.
