Oracle today announced that its Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery solution is the first to complete the new TM Forum Frameworx Solution Certification process.
TM Forum is an industry association focused on enabling best-in-class IT for service providers in the communications, media and cloud service markets.
The TM Forum Solution Certification awarded to Oracle’s Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery solution demonstrates full conformance to the leading industry standards of Frameworx 10 from the TM Forum, down to Level 3 processes.
The certification covers the applicable portions of both the strategy, infrastructure & product (SIP) domain and the operations domain, including readiness, fulfillment, assurance and billing functions within the eTOM models.
“As the first supplier to receive the TM Forum Frameworx Solution Certification, Oracle Communications is a real leader in driving industry standards forward," said Martin Creaner, president & chief executive officer, TM Forum. "The TM Forum Conformance Mark illustrates a commitment to interoperability and provides reassurance to customers seeking standards-based, cost effective and flexible solutions. Oracle Communications’ work to have its Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery solution certified demonstrates its commitment to supporting more efficient business processes through standards.”
Oracle Communications has worked with the TM Forum to pioneer certification standards for pre-integrated, productized BSS/OSS solutions because of the associated benefits for communication service providers (CSPs). The use of a common language to identify industry best practices increases confidence in procurement, helps detect inefficiencies in processes, and reduces risk and implementation costs through a simplified assessment prior to purchase.
An industry milestone, the certification of Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery is a key step in enabling CSPs to perform transformations with reduced integration risk, cost and effort; improve operational efficiency and agility through standard processes and interfaces; enable the rapid introduction of new services and business models; leverage shared industry concepts and deployment experiences; and improve total customer experience and earn loyalty
“We are excited to be the first recipient of the TM Forum Frameworx Solution Certification, and proud that it will provide our customers with the assurance that Oracle solutions fully conform to the leading industry standards," said Dan Ford, vice president of product marketing, Oracle Communications. "The application of industry standards in BSS/OSS will help our customers to make savings on their IT budgets, and more quickly meet changing business demands through the rapid implementation of new services and business models, and increased operational efficiency. Our ongoing work with the TM Forum demonstrates Oracle’s commitment to standardization and to helping our customers reap the benefits of flexible and agile IT architectures.”
