Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
VIRGO Publishing, a leading business-to-business information services company announed today that B/OSS is moving the Service Assurance Forum to an all-digital platform to make it as convenient as possible for our BSS/OSS audience.
The Service Assurance Forum consists of original research, a group of webinars, two Reports and a Digital Issue. It is built around a request-for-information (RFI) format. The RFI, based on the needs of a fictitious but realistic company, and written by B/OSS Editor-in-Chief Tim McElligott, can be downloaded here, http://bit.ly/qJjsTV.
The RFI approach is meant to create a level of precision and comparability that is not possible in a panel or roundtable format.
Our audience has indicated they want B/OSS to make one important change in our plans to spotlight Service Assurance. Initial planning included a small live event in Boston in late September. We are changing that part of the plan to make the event virtual. That will allow BSS/OSS professionals who cannot squeeze a trip to Boston into their busy schedules to participate fully in the Service Assurance Forum.
Service Assurance is one of the hottest topics in the BSS/OSS industry. Service Assurance will grow by $1.1 billion – or 48% – in the five year period 2009-14, representing a CAGR of 8.3% during a harsh global economic downturn. By 2014, the Service Assurance market will be $3.4 billion, up from $2.3 billion in 2009.
The premise of the Service Assurance Forum is to create a deeper understanding of the opportunities and issues Service Assurance presents to service providers by mobilizing a variety of information gathering, analytic and reporting tools around the topic, and to bring the entire package of information to B/OSS’ service provider audience in a convenient, intelligent package.
The RFI responses will be presented in a series of brief webinars early this autumn. That will allow the audience to access the information on demand, at a time and on the device that works best for them.
So now the Service Assurance Forum will be delivering the same in-depth information through completely digital means.
