Enabling telecom providers to stay connected with performance
Dialing Up Performances for Telecom Players
As economies change and technology evolves, it becomes harder and more complex for telcos to make the insightful and performance-driven decisions they need to deliver value. The accuracy of a telecom company’s underlying systems that support these decisions, as well as compliance and data protection risk, become essential for their future success.
We understand the complexities of the evolving landscape facing our clients. That is why we work in partnership with organizations in the telecom sector to address the changing and challenging realities they face. Whether that is through Enterprise Performance Management or Data Analytics, we redefine insight into corporate performance. Constellation is a true partner for Telcos in their pursuit to achieve end-to-end enterprise performance management and advanced business analytics solutions.
Business strategies extend much beyond short and medium-term financial plans. So should do the financial strategic plans, however finance users require powerful and agile tools to analyze the effects of fast-changing business circumstances and uncertainties inherent in long-range financial forecasts. Many finance departments rely on customized spreadsheets to do financial Modeling and impact analysis for these forecasts. Such customized spreadsheet solutions are difficult to manage, lack data transparency and integrity, do not integrate with operational plans, and are not efficient at handling treasury and financial Modeling activities.
In a fast-changing economical climate within shifting political landscapes, Strategic Modeling is an ideal solution for what-if modeling of financial and non-financial risks.
Users spend time simulating long-term alternative strategies, developing contingent scenarios, and stress-testing financial models, rather than building or auditing those models in spreadsheets or other non-dedicated systems. Using the built-in scenario modeling capabilities within Strategic Modeling, users proactively and effectively respond to changing industry and economic dynamics. Strategic Modeling allows users to create numerous distinct scenarios for each organizational unit. Users can also evaluate sensitivity to key performance drivers and run periodic “goal-seek” checks to determine the performance level needed to achieve specific financial objectives.
Financial models reveal the impacts of strategic decisions on an organization’s bottom line, balance sheet, cash flow, and shareholder value. Within Strategic Modeling, financial modelers can use built-in financial intelligence to assess the impact of their what-if strategic scenario models on financial statements.
