The CPO Perspective
Chief Technical Officer
With the need to deliver real value via digital products evolving in response to customers’ needs, organizations are bringing on C-level executives specifically to oversee products. A Chief Product Officer (CPO) establishes a product vision, product innovation, product development, product design, and a product organization. What kind of companies have CPOs ? Practically every company offering over-the-top (OTT) apps, from the global giants down to the smallest start-ups. At ECT, we have two CTOs for the network layer and application layer respectively. Our product visionary is the one responsible for our applications, CPO and CTO in one person, Dr. Hans Huber.
But why don’t more CSPs have
Chief Product Officers?
At CSPs, product strategists, product owners, product leaders and managers often have little if any C-level representation. Product people are frustrated by telecoms networks that do not support continuous, agile product composition. Some CSPs form alliances with dominant global partners or just resell third-party products, despite the resulting lower margins and lack of differentiation.
Here is where we are determined to make a difference.
Our telecoms low code and agile co-development empower product leaders to realize their own strategic product vision and respond continuously, sensitively to the changing needs of their customers.
