Santa Clara, CA (Vocus) March 23, 2010
Netformx is pleased to invite the service provider industry and others with supporting interest to participate in the TM Forum Leadership Webinar “Telco’s Cloud Offering Differentiator: Bundle Layer 1 to Layer 7 and More. This complimentary webinar with presentations from the TM Forum, Stratecast and Netformx will be held on Wednesday, March 31, 2010 from 10:00-11:00 am EDT time.
"As consumers of cloud services, enterprises have unique requirements for interconnection with multiple locations and interoperability with multiple public and private network and IT elements” said Nancee Ruzicka, Business Analyst, Stratecast/Frost & Sullivan. “In order to design a solution that delivers each enterprise the features and functionality it requires, service providers need sophisticated tools to ensure that customer requirements are accurately captured and the design seamlessly flows through the order-to-activation process."
In today’s ever changing world, cloud services is the next important trend that will clearly increase the complexity of service providers offerings in addition to presenting significant BSS and OSS challenges.
Service providers have an opportunity to better position themselves to effectively compete with other cloud service providers through the bundling of network services, computing infrastructure, applications and managed services to ensure complete delivery of IT functions to enterprise customers. These solutions cannot be found in the product catalog of the service provider and that means iterative designs, longer sales and implementation cycles with the added challenge of an efficient BSS/OSS becoming even more critical.
Join us to take a look at the crucial role solution management can play and find out how to automate sales and fulfillment processes to ensure efficient and deployable projects which will support the service provider’s continued growth and evolution.
“Cloud Service providers must be able to accurately design and price unique offerings that deliver the critical customer requirements such as security, flexibility, management and control” said Aileen Smith, SVP Collaboration Programs of the TM Forum. “The approach presented in this webinar, allied with the Forum’s Frameworx and ongoing work in the areas of security and SLA management will assist with the rapid deployment of enterprise cloud services, helping cloud service providers meet their emerging customer demands.”
