Operational Support Systems are, frankly, a mess. They struggle to support a mish-mash of existing technologies let alone the coming wave of NFV.
So, where should CSPs start to rebuild the OSS? Big bang transformations are risky, expensive and frequently under deliver.
The joint webinar by TCS and Light Reading was held to find out how you can transform the OSS, and unleash the business innovation necessary to start driving top line growth.
Some of the key focus areas of this session were;
- Closed-loop Lifecycle Orchestration across Business processes (order management, product catalog), Services (policy, service catalog/inventory) and Resources (physical and virtualized)
- Network discovery and inventory (real-time, accurate discovery of physical/virtualized, and logical resources across vendors, domains, technologies and layers)
- Modernization of OSS systems themselves (cloud deployment in virtual machines and containers, rearchitecting for microservices, use of Open APIs, composability)
- DevOps methodologies to make OSS, and the business it supports, more agile
