LONDON-Monday 17 December 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Arthur D. Little (ADL) today published a new research report highlighting the need for greater digitalization in the global telecoms industry. The TIME 2018 Flagship Report outlines the scale of the digital opportunity, with analysis estimating that a ‘digital dividend’ of over €200 billion free cash flow awaits telcos that can successfully transform.

Industry executives surveyed for the report confirm the findings. 73% say that digital will add value to their businesses, with key benefits including greater agility, increased subscriber growth and cost savings. CAPEX spending on areas such as 5G infrastructure and the Internet of Things is expected to require a 7% CAGR increase from 2017-2022, outpacing forecast revenue growth. Consequently, failing to digitally transform risks commoditization and disintermediation, leaving telcos unable to invest sufficiently. As one senior executive pu ... Read more »

LONDON-Monday 17 December 2018 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Arthur D. Little (ADL) today released its worldwide automotive market report. Key findings are that desire for car ownership remains strong, especially amongst the young, and that drivers are considering a dramatic switch to electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs).

Of those planning to replace their car, 48% said they’d consider an EV (BEV, hybrid or plugin hybrid), 36% a petrol-engined vehicle and 12% diesel.

Klaus Schmitz, Partner with Arthur D. Little explains: “Extending our groundbreaking 2015 automotive study shows enormous changes. Whi ... Read more »
