Tribold has announced the latest version of its leading Product Management enterprise application software specifically built for Communications Service Providers (CSPs). Tribold Product Portfolio Manager (PPM) further extends the companyâ€™s technology leadership in the rapidly expanding CSP Product Management sector. Incorporating widespread support for Service Orientated Architecture (SOA), the new release further simplifies the process of integrating a centralized product management catalog at the heart of the CSP enterprise – enabling service providers to rapidly provide customer-driven, on-demand product and service delivery.
Building on the increasing operator adoption of service oriented architectures, Tribold PPM v2.4 further enables seamless integration and communication between the consolidated product catalog and the vast array of OSS and BSS systems, by enhancing the automated integration process, reducing complexity and injecting flexibility into the network.
“As we move towards a converged environment, operators are under increasing pressure to rapidly create and deliver an extensive range of bundled services,” said Catherine Michel, Chief Technical Officer, Tribold. “These services are now the only way to create differentiation in todayâ€™s competitive market, and effective product management is increasingly accepted as the best way to do this.”
Key features of Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.4 include: more flexible integration with the OSS/BSS systems that require product catalog information, such as billing, CRM and provisioning; reduced complexity for service providers looking to adopt a Service Delivery Framework (SDF) and Platform (SDP); seamless exposure of product-related information for system footprint and reporting to enable service providers to make more informed business decisions. Triboldâ€™s innovative approach to product management is also setting the foundations for off-the-shelf connectors to leading OSS and BSS applications.
Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.4 is on general availability from 31 January 2007.
