Open to:
Telecoms operators and service providers, including specific platform companies, as well as platform vendors in partnership with a named operator.

This category will be assessed by our independent panel of judges.


About this category:
The judges will be looking for the company that has the best platform strategy. It may be to compete with traditional platform companies such as Amazon and Google, or to develop a partnership strategy where the CSP is more than simply the bedrock for the platform company. The winner may be a service provider, a platform company, or a vendor who is enabling the platform strategy of an operator.

Your platform strategy must show results in the period from 1 November 2015 and have produced measurable results by 30 April 2018.
