At the end of 2016, Source One Director Dave Pastore looked back on the year in Telecommunications sourcing. Three trends in particular stood out. Companies of all sizes were investing in software-defined networking technologies, managed cybersecurity services, and cloud-connected services.

Increasing interconnectivity and emerging cyber threats, however, compelled companies to take a more proactive approach to spend in this category throughout 2017. The pace of adoption impressed Pastore as the defining Telecom trend for the year.
