Syndesis has announced that Telstra has selected Syndesis TrueSource, the worldâ€™s most widely deployed data integrity management solution, from a competitive field for discovery and reconciliation as part of Telstraâ€™s IT transformation project. Under the multi-million dollar license agreement, Syndesis will address data quality and accuracy issues associated with multiple data repositories by enabling auto-discovery across Telstraâ€™s entire network and reconciliation of physical and logical inventory.
“As part of Telstraâ€™s IT transformation, it is essential to ensure the accuracy of inventory data, which supports overall service fulfillment. Telstra selected Syndesis as a partner because of the companyâ€™s proven ability to maintain perpetual data integrity and accuracy, cleanse legacy inventory systems to facilitate migration, as well as its out-of-the-box capabilities,” said John McInerney, Director, IT Transformation, Telstra Corporation.
Syndesis solutions have been selected to perform discovery and reconciliation of network assets valued at more than $25 billion across its customer base, which includes BT, Cingular, Telecom Italia, Sprint/Embarq and Verizon Wireless, among many other customers around the world. Syndesis TrueSource has proven its ability to reconcile a range of inventory solutions, including next-generation inventory management systems from three commercial inventory vendors as well as multiple “home-grown” inventory systems. In addition to inventory reconciliation, Syndesis TrueSource is being used to reconcile billing, assurance, order and CRM systems, making it the leader in enterprise-wide reconciliation for telecom operators.
“Data Integrity Management is an essential component of a service providerâ€™s OSS/BSS architecture because it maximizes operational efficiencies, reduces process errors, optimizes network utilization and establishes lean operator best practices. We are proud that Syndesis TrueSource is the industryâ€™s most trusted solution to ensure the data quality that plays such an integral role in a carrier’s operational and financial health,” said Mark Nicholson, Chief Technology Officer for Syndesis. “Chosen by major carriers in the Americas, EMEA and now the Asia-Pacific region, Syndesis is powering discovery and data reconciliation across wide-ranging systems covering the network, inventory, billing and service assurance.”
Syndesisâ€™ solutions have been selected to perform discovery of more than 1,000 different network elements from more than 40 different equipment vendors. This makes Syndesis the industry’s broadest and deepest discovery solution to drive inventory population and inventory reconciliation, as well as a full range of data integrity processes not only against inventory but also against other key OSS/BSS systems. Syndesis is also the leader in next-generation provisioning solutions, providing discovery capabilities that underpin data integrity as well as provisioning for Triple/Quad Play, VoIP, DSL, Metro Ethernet, ATM and Frame Relay. Together, these off-the-shelf offerings provide carriers with a single-touch solution that both discovers and provisions their network.
“Unlike inventory-centric synchronization functions available from inventory vendors, Syndesis TrueSource is the only system optimized to ensure data quality across an operatorâ€™s full range of fulfillment, assurance and billing systems,” says Andy Fraley, Vice President of Data Integrity Solutions for Syndesis. “Syndesis TrueSource is the industry’s only data integrity management system that conducts enterprise-wide data quality improvements, including inventory reconciliation, cost and revenue assurance, leased line cost recovery, order verification and fault impact topology enhancement.”
Incorporating multi-technology auto-discovery, live discrepancy management and flexible reconciliation technology, Syndesis TrueSource reconciles OSS databases, recovers resources and enhances processes, including provisioning. The clean data from TrueSource reduces the need for manual audits, cuts non-productive re-work time in provisioning cycles, and reduces lengthy repair cycles.
