CloudSense, provider of – Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) and order management platform for communications service providers (CSPs), has demonstrated its commitment to adopting open standards by signing the TM Forum’s manifesto for Open Digital Architecture and Open API standards.
The initiative forms part of CloudSense’s roadmap for enabling digital-first eco-systems in the communications sector to flourish and maximize the potential for leveraging 5G and IoT technologies.
“In signing the manifesto, TM Forum members such as CloudSense are showing their commitment to transforming IT and operations to be future ready,” said George Glass, CTO, TM Forum. “The drive to collaboratively deliver the Open Digital Architecture is creating a software market foundation for the industry that enables communication service providers and suppliers to invest in IT for new and differentiated services instead of sinking resources into legacy maintenance and integration.”
“Tomorrow’s telecommunications landscape encompasses an exciting array of new services made possible through seamless collaboration across a wider than ever number of partners in the ecosystem. For the B2B segment this presents a step change in market opportunity as businesses across all industries strive to reinvent themselves to win in a digital first economy.
“Without open standards, commercial innovation strategies will simply be stifled. CloudSense’s technology sits at the core of the commercial operations and our support for the TMForum standards is firmly aligned with our commitment to CSPs that we will give them the freedom to innovate at scale,” said Brian McCann, Chief Product and Technology Officer at CloudSense.
As a long-standing member of TM Forum, CloudSense works closely with the telecommunications community in order to further efficient collaboration amongst all partners. CloudSense is taking an active role on the Digital Business Marketplace Catalyst which will be showcased at this year’s Digital Transformation World conference.
