Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/9wm5ck/telco_apis) has announced the addition of the "Telco APIs - Service Delivery Platforms, an Enabler of New Business Models" report to their offering.

The concept of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) has become ever more important with the rise of the Internet economy, both fixed and mobile, with the internet titans offering APIs for third party developers to develop upon. Telcos have reacted by building APIs on top of their SDP strategies thus further enlarging the developer platform of these Internet titans.

This report benchmarks the most important initiatives and projects of telcos and vendors, then analyses their strategies on both SDP and APIs, for both internal and external business models.

- How can APIs develop and consolidate telco businesses?

- What role for service delivery platforms (SDP) in telco networks?

- What are the impacts of SDP on telco positioning?

- What are the notable business models in this new market? How can SDP enable 2-sided business models?

- What are telcos' and vendors' strategies around APIs? What are the drivers, where are the hurdles?

- Can telcos and vendors face the Internet Titans to market APIs, after leaving them this battlefield alone for a long time?
