CSG Systems International Risks and Challenges
Much of CSG's success could depend on how well carriers adopt Ascendon, its next-generation platform for billing, ecommerce and other digital services. Continued conversion of its clients' installed base from legacy systems like Amdocs to CSG is also a key to its ability to increase recurring revenues and bigger wallet shares among big cable companies like Comcast and Time Warner. Another risk lies in the growing consolidation of the carrier space and emergence of new content delivery services from providers such as Netflix and Amazon that could render CSG's new platform to a lesser role.
