Digital disruption and the emergence of the platform revolution necessitates a new way of thinking for CSPs – to augment traditional strategy approaches with ‘platform thinking’ and Digital Ecosystem Management (DEM)

Graz, Austria – October 2016BearingPoint//Beyond, a leading Digital Ecosystem Management platform vendor, announces that it has been named a Visionary in the October 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Integrated Revenue and Customer Management for CSPs.

This year, Gartner positioned Infonova the furthest for ‘Completeness of Vision’, in the Visionaries quadrant which we believe underlines Infonova’s focus on delivering vastly superior and innovative solutions for CSPs in the digital era together with parent company BearingPoint.

The award-winning, DEM software, Infonova R6, is at the heart of BearingPoint’s DEM solution. Infonova R6 enables multiple partners and suppliers over various industry verticals to collaborate in bi-directional, multi-level revenue chains in various B2B2x business models, with fully automated orchestration, monetization and revenue allocation. Infonova R6 easily plugs into legacy IT to quickly generate new revenues and new value, enabling the effective leveraging and bundling of a company’s own resources, as well as the resources of many different third parties.

Our clients are currently experiencing unprecedented growth and business benefits from the BearingPoint DEM solution, powered by Infonova R6. We feel our placement as a Visionary in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant is a strong testament of our competitive differentiators and focussed value proposition for delivering our clients a future-ready solution enabling enormous growth potential.
