Integration challenges resolved with TCS HOBS
Considering the complex IT and OSS landscape after acquiring UPC Hungary, Vodafone chose the TCS HOBS order management platform to transform its business and optimize time-to-market. The solution is based on plug-and-play service-oriented architecture (SOA) with out-of-the-box (OOTB) interface specifications for third-party integrations. Several open APIs and micro services enabled TCS to quickly integrate HOBS with existing Vodafone systems. TCS HOBS also enabled the configuration of business rules and workflows, automated processes, and incorporated manual interventions. In addition, the availability of tasks, SLAs, and notifications helped Vodafone Hungary to quickly implement various orchestration scenarios for multiple services such as fixed voice services, GPON broadband, and cable network broadband. The mapping of commercial products to the HOBS service catalog which supports routing to the respective logical network platforms also helped Vodafone Hungary ensure seamless service activation.
