HP (NYSE:HPQ) (Nasdaq:HPQ) has been named the overall market leader in telecom service management by OSS Observer in a recent in-depth report. OSS Observer is a leading telecom analyst firm and is based in Illinois.
OSS Observer cited HP Software products as well as HPâ€™s strengths in business consulting, service modeling, active service-level agreement (SLA) management, SLA reporting, active probe testing, availability status and problem resolution metrics in the report. Evaluating all the major vendors and their importance in the fast-growing, worldwide operations support systems (OSS) market, including mobile, broadband and business services segments, the in-depth report by OSS Observer looked at the current business environment, market drivers, relative market shares and market forecasts.
â€œHP is the early market leader, leveraging its strong position of HP TeMIP Software deployments in EMEA, Asia and Central/Latin America,â€ said Patrick Kelly, partner and co-founder, OSS Observer. â€œThe complexity associated with service management projects puts HP in a stronger position over their competitors that depend on system integrators.â€
