Frameworx Distilled, a new book by John P. Reilly and Martin J. Creaner, provides a handbook for new and experienced digital service providers and suppliers implementing TM Forum’s recently launched Frameworx – an integrated business architecture created for the industry, by the industry. Focusing on today’s Service-Oriented Enterprise, Frameworx Distilled provides a significant update to NGOSS Distilled, published in 2005.
The new book provides a detailed overview of Frameworx, as well as detailed example implementations. The book reflects the authors’ wealth of experience and knowledge. John Reilly, a TM Forum Subject Matter Expert and Distinguished Fellow, teaches Frameworx principles to students around the world. Martin Creaner is TM Forum President and Chief Technical Officer. Both authors have held pivotal roles in the development of Frameworx, based on the Forum’s highly successful NGOSS standards.
Frameworx, an integrated business architecture blueprint for the communications and digital services markets, enables service providers to significantly reduce their operational costs and improve business agility by providing an industry agreed approach for rationalizing their operational IT, processes, and systems.
Frameworx expands and integrates the Forum’s existing NGOSS standard Business Process (eTOM), Information (SID), Application (TAM), and Integration Frameworks into a full enterprise IT and process architecture that also embraces major IT industry standards such as ITIL and TOGAF. The suite provides a service oriented integration approach with standardized interfaces and support tools.
Frameworx Distilled focuses on Frameworx, its component frameworks, and the relationships between them. Detailed examples are provided to illustrate application of the component frameworks for immediate, short-term, and long-term use.
Frameworx Distilled provides:
• An overview of Frameworx;
• An introduction to its components—the Information, Business Process, Integration, and Application Frameworks;
• Examples of how Frameworx supports service-orientated enterprises and business transformation;
• Clear advice on implementing and using Frameworx;
• An introduction to Frameworx Conformance;
• An overview of harmonization with other industry groups.
Huawei, a telecom solutions provider in Telecom Network Infrastructure, Application & Software, Professional Services, and Devices, generously sponsored the publication of the book.
The book’s authors, Martin Creaner and John Reilly, will sign copies of the new book at TM Forum’s Management World conference in Nice next week at the Huawei booth on Tuesday, May 18, and Wednesday, May 19, from 6 to 7 pm. Complimentary copies will also be made available to press attending the event and TM Forum training attendees. A new Frameworx overview poster, also sponsored by Huawei, will be available to attendees in Forumville.
Frameworx Distilled is the latest in a suite of resources from the Forum to facilitate the adoption of Frameworx including, product conformance certification, certified training, a certified partner program, and extensive implementation support to help service providers and suppliers.
