Newsbyte: SAP Releases Survey Data Reaffirming Rapid Market Changes In Telecommunications Industry

Responses also show that while 70 percent feel that the ability to manage Big Data is important to their company, 40 percent do not have a Big Data strategy. And 31 percent of respondents said that the lack of IT skills or insufficient data quality was their biggest challenge to sufficiently capitalizing on Big Data opportunities while 28 percent listed insufficient funding or proof of ROI as their biggest obstacle. Among cloud services, critical enterprise apps, managed mobility and managed-cloud-as-a-service (MCaaS) were rated as the most valuable services, and 79 percent of respondents listed themselves as planning or executing some cloud services solutions.

In his new role, Stevens will be responsible for overseeing the end-to-end portfolio of SAP® solutions, applications and services tailored to meet the needs of the telecommunications industry worldwide. He will lead a team dedicated to delivering solutions that help CSPs and other industry players achieve accelerated growth and business model innovation. Previously, Stevens served as senior vice president and head of Global Sales for SAP Mobile Services, responsible for the continued profitable growth of global messaging revenues across the telecommunications community and other market verticals. As the commercial lead, he drove the overall go-to-market plan, overseeing targeted M&A activity to help augment overall offerings and successfully changed the strategic direction of the business unit to match the market's evolving needs. Stevens has held numerous leadership roles in the enterprise mobility and services industry, including serving on the executive team for Sybase 365, which was acquired by SAP in 2010. He previously ran the global sales teams for ADC Metrica and First Hop, where he raised venture capital finance and led the company's M&A activity.
