Openwave Case Study
The past decade has been challenging for Openwave, which mid-way through was showing signs of being a company that had lost its strategic direction with an increasingly bumpy financial performance to match. 2010 was no less challenging, but Openwave ended the year with the strongest service proposition it has had in a long time, and this bodes well for the future.
