Smart Phones killed Intelligent Network

IN was designed to provide logic for the dumb terminals on PSTN or GSM RAN.
As smart phones invaded the market in the latest years most of the functions the initially IN provided moved to the phone or could be achieved over IP links (Is somebody still using MMS anymore?)

IMHO the only remaining use case of IN is in this moment charging for voice and data services.
