Video Transformation

The Problem

A leading Tier 1 US-based Cable Operator wanted to understand the impact of technology evolution plans on their video products roadmap as well as CPE device inventory.

DTS Approach

  • Aligned with senior executives on the scope and objectives of the project
  • Interviewed key stakeholders to compile relevant information:
    • Video Product Management: Video Product roadmap
    • Data Product Management: Data Product roadmap
    • CPE Device Product Management: Device Roadmap and capabilities
    • Engineering: Technology Transformation Roadmap and capabilities
    • Product Finance: Cost and Device Inventory data
  • Analyzed compiled information and compiled a detailed technology vs product capability model with 10-year evolution plan
    • Modeled five video product transformation scenarios
    • Modeled high-level network transformation costs
    • Modeled CPE device inventory forecast and associated costs
    • Reviewed and aligned modeling assumptions and analysis with key stakeholders

Client Benefits

  • The model enabled the client to clearly understand the impacts of various technology upgrade options on their video and data product roadmaps
  • Using the model, the client was able to easily explore numerous “what-if” scenarios without having to re-do extensive data analysis
  • Key client stakeholders could align on a coordinated technology, video, data and CPE product roadmap while understanding device inventory and cost implications
