Successfully navigating through the economic downturn requires the right strategies, the right investments, and the right partnerships. During a recent visit to Cisco’s San Jose Executive Briefing Center, Telecom Italia‘s senior leadership team shares how they are using this downturn to introduce new managed services and new business models to better serve the Small and Medium business segment and win market share.
Key to Telecom Italia’s success is their partnership with Cisco. Over the past several years, Cisco has helped Telecom Italia design and implement their “Impresa Semplice” managed service portfolio that provides SMBs with services including: managed LAN, managed VPN, managed firewall, and managed unified communications. In this video, Telecom Italia shares their perspective on the market, key success factors, and the power of partnerships to accelerate innovation.
Telecom Italia is working with Cisco to build upon this foundation to expand service to more segments, offer new hosted unified communications and web collaboration services, and offer new pricing models allowing more customers to “pay as they grow”. In addition, Telecom Italia is working with Cisco to introduce the new ISR G2 platform my mid-year 2010.
