Energy & Utilities
Energy & Utilities
This phenomenon has led to an increase in the number of players in the Energy sector that need to finance and manage large investments to overcome transnational barriers through interconnected systems and to create high value-added services that will improve their economic performance. More than three hundred of Bip’s professionals are operating in this sector. They understand and live these challenges every day by working with their customers within the entire supply chain, creating opportunities for improvement and greater chances of success. This commitment is applied to projects focusing on traditional areas (M&A, post-merger integration, organisational transformation, cost control, operational excellence, optimisation models for the management and operation of networks, trading and risk management). It also focusses on transformation driven by new technologies and the digital revolution (smart grids, smart lighting, smart cities, HEMS, storage, control systems, machine learning, real-time stream processing, big data).
Technology, Media, Entertainment & Telco
Technology, Media, Entertainment & TelcoThe traditional Telecommunication industry no longer exists. Whoever started the revolution enabling the connection of today’s billions of devices has now become a marginal player of in a very different landscape. The new vision needs to leverage capability in disruptive exponential technologies, offering competitive services to retail and corporate clients, buying/producing content at fractional cost and making available hardware and software layers open to integration and adoption.
This exponential, transformational challenge impacts all players. Telco companies will have to re-gain their semi-monopolistic control of infrastructure and close the digital gap with OTT companies, passing from a physical to a full digital relationship with the client. At the same time, content providers will have to develop the ability to “create” multi-channels and multi-device chains of service in which contentise marginal “brick”. This “revolution” also concerns OTT companies, who will have to manage the evolution of the infrastructure needed to deliver more and more bytes, quicker and quicker. Finally, hardware device manufacturers will have to consider their products as the gateway for offering infinite options of services. With this scenario in mind, Bip be quipped itself to move client data, customer interactions and people management from physical to digital, maintaining the consistent evolution of technology (even at this explosive speed), to test and refine the practical adoption of technology and minimise the failure rate of “too big to succeed” projects.
