    I have been working at OpenMarket full-time

    Pros

    Very profitable company with major global brands as customers and exclusive agreements with networks that gives openmarket competitive advantage.

    Cons

    Outdated technology and limited product portfolio. The technology part of the company is huge but has been performing very poorly for some years now without major changes as the business results were good despite the costs of that same technology organization.
    If openmarket doesn´t invest on changing that organization bringing the technology up to date whilst investing in new products, as soon as business results are not that good, they will have it very difficult to recover and stay in business.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your technology and bring new blood to to the executive team. Some people have been there for years although their areas have been underperforming.
