3G Third Gen
3G (third generation) technology attracted the attention of mobile phone operators, who spent $130 billion in Europe to acquire 3G spectrum licenses in 2000. 3G became popular as it offered operators cost effectiveness in providing services for users. Vodafone joined the race to launch 3G technology by focusing on providing content services to users. The company launched a £15 million advertising campaign to promote its content services and to boost subscription rates. But with several other mobile phone operators also following a similar strategy, analysts are sceptical about the company’s ability to recover the investment made on the spectrum license and on the promotion of 3G.
Case Study – Burj Al Arab
The building is built on sand, which is unusual as most tall buildings are founded on rock. The Burj al Arab is supported on 250, 1.5M diameter columns that go 45 meters under the sea. As there is only sand to hold the building up the columns rely on friction.
Case Study – Infosys
E.ON began its ServiceNow led digital transformation journey by first setting up a single consolidated platform as an internal tool for service management and then integrating all the other supplier tools into it. Infosys helped E.ON transition to the ServiceNow cloud based platform to modernize IT service management across the enterprise. Infosys powered the implementation with its Enterprise Service Management Café that helped standardize and reduce the overall duration of the implementation significantly.
