Many telecom equipment manufacturers are urgently looking to shift strategic focus and increase business flexibility, according to a global survey by Cap Gemini Ernst & Young.

The survey, of executives up to CEO level at telecom companies in Europe, North America and the Far East, showed more than 40% are looking to flexibility as a key strategic focus. The respondents’ estimates of the change in overall market demand in 2003 range from a fall of 25% to an increase in 60%, highlighting the uncertainty regarding the scale and timing of an upturn, and fuelling the need for revision of strategies.

The survey also sees outsourcing becoming even more popular with cost saving the main reason for its uptake.”TEMs are alive to the need for major cost reduction but there is uncertainty about the type of changes that are needed said Bert Hunter, an executive of the global high-tech sector at CGE&Y.”
