Figure of the day: Collaboration with partners around 5G initiatives

According to PAC, 63% of enterprises will need to work with partners to support their 5G initiatives to varying extents.

With less than a third of enterprises recognizing the need for internal training and reskilling exercises, it's concerning to see the majority of enterprises acknowledging that their in-house capabilities are limited. Close to half of respondents believe they have a team capable of tackling specific aspects of their 5G projects and plan to lean into partners to handle the rest. And a smaller cohort advises they have minimal in-house capabilities and will use partners either to help scale up capability or support them through the entire project.    

  

It's clear from these results that partners – whether telecommunications firms, service providers, or consultancies – will be in high demand as the bulk of enterprises seek to supplement their capabilities and hand significant portions of their 5G projects to external parties.
