Advisory and Comment:
This is a good marriage (if it is that or just a friendship with multiple partners in this brave new world). Telecommunications vendors need professional services expertise - it is not just towers and base stations that carriers and service providers need - they need working infrastructure that logically connects with communications software in ISP's boxes. That network integration needs skilled resources - that's where Cap Gemini may fill the gap (we said gap, not Cap!).
