Summary
Mobile network operators (MNOs) are gradually moving from telecom-centric to IT-centric operating models and are adopting the same approach that has driven the success of online service providers. Monetization of application programming interfaces (APIs) is one of the most prominent facets of this evolution. MNO API monetization has traditionally been structured around extensive developer outreach programs supported by a Web based
technology platform. Messaging, location and billing are the primary APIs opened by MNOs. Beyond this group of APIs operators, in particular those in emerging markets, have remained relatively conservative about exposing APIs. The financial impact of telecom operator API programs remains uncertain, but indications are that the direct revenue boost is moderate at best.

Key Findings
- MNOs are gradually moving from telecom-centric to IT-centric operating models: The change is dramatic.

- Operators are increasingly narrowing the scope of their API programs, shifting toward more partnerships targeting specific vertical ecosystems and focusing on B2B.

- Beyond the primary APIs opened by MNOs - messaging, location and billing - operators, in particular those in emerging markets, have remained relatively conservative about opening APIs.

- The revenue impact of operator API programs is moderate at best.

- Operators recognize that the application, not the API, is the end product.

- Ultimately the efforts to monetize APIs are about more than building up alternative revenue streams as traditional ones dry up. They are central to broader efforts to accelerate the pace of innovation within the organization.

Synopsis
The Report Telecom APIs - Monetizing Their Most Valuable Assets Is Transforming Mobile Operators by Pyramid Research examines one of the more striking manifestations of the ongoing transformation of telecom operators - their growing willingness to monetize tightly held assets such as networks, billing systems and user relationships, and to expose APIs to third-party developers. Building on our examination of a dozen operators around the world, the report analyzes the strategic drivers and structures of MNO asset monetization programs, along with their impact on the operations and bottom lines of operators. The report also provides a number of case studies of API programs from around the world.
