TM Forum Live 2015 – Day Two

Day two, when things really kick off with the keynotes and the expo. Today saw some big announcements about wins and partnerships. And lots of awards…


A busy day for NetCracker.

They announced today that Andorra Telecom has deployed NetCracker’s end-to-end, fully integrated solutions as part of a massive BSS/OSS transformation.

Turkcell Superonline has opted to use NetCracker solutions to improve and optimize B2B and B2C service fulfillment and assurance.

And finally, NetCracker was selected as a winner in the 2015 TM Forum Excellence Awards. NetCracker was recognized in the category of Customer Centricity for its Customer Management solutions.

Yey, NetCracker!

And Telus are Great Too…

Yes, who doesn’t love Telus. I’ve worked with them before and I know they love to try something new in OSS. And it wouldnt be a TM Forum event without Ibrahim being there!

Now That’s an Award

Wondering what all these awards looks like? Check out this accolade:

Ericsson and Pegasystems Partner-Up

Pegasystems and Ericsson have formed a global partnership to help telecommunications service providers utilize customer data and business context to anticipate customer needs in real time, using the combination of the Pega Marketing application’s Next-Best-Action capabilities and Ericsson’s existing OSS/BSS product and services portfolio.

Same Old, Same Old?

All this stuff is great, but is TM Forum Live 2015 really making a difference?

Could the agenda just be a bit too ‘fluffy’, asks Alex Leslie over at Disruptive Views.

“Operators have to completely change. To survive, therefore, and provide leadership in a thoroughly different arena from even a year or so ago, the Forum, too, must change.”

But not before we’ve finished enjoying the familiar sights of Nice….
