Cartesian's Leading Proprietary Toolset Now Compliant with TMForum Industry
Flagship Toolset - eLexicon(TM) - Critical for Maximizing Operational
Performance and Providing Business Assurance for Service Operators
LONDON, 2011-06-08 09:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cartesian, a TMNG Global
company, today announced that one of its flagship proprietary toolsets,
eLexicon™, is now compliant with the industry standards developed by TM Forum -
eTOM (enhanced Telecom Operations Map) and TAM (TM Forum Application
Framework). This toolset is critical for providing Business Assurance for
service operators and in evaluating complex business and operations processes
such as service assurance, business process management, revenue and cost
management, billing and mediation.
Commenting on the toolset enhancement, Rich Nespola, Chairman and CEO of TMNG
"As service operators strive to keep pace with today's digital market dynamics,
they need to re-evaluate every aspect of their existing business operations.
Well-executed business requirements and operational analysis requires the right
toolsets to properly evaluate whether an operator's existing business
applications and systems are meeting user needs and performing optimally. We've
taken our intellectual property and linked them to the industry standards and
now have the ability to cross-reference our proprietary requirements with
industry requirements to better serve our clients and to ensure that they make
the most of their investment dollars."
The eTOM model, the most widely used and accepted standard for business
processes in the telecommunications industry, describes the full scope of
business processes required by a service provider and defines key elements and
how they interact. TM Forum's TAM provides a model for grouping processes and
their associated information into recognisable applications.
Cartesian's proven methodologies and toolsets, advanced analytical
capabilities, and deep market and customer insights help clients assure their
business and create lasting and sustainable value through improved operational
performance, reduced expenditures and optimal efficiency.
Howard Watson, Cartesian's Managing Director added:
"In order to provide a true end to end approach to requirements and
optimisation, we have reconfigured eLexicon™ to include Order to Cash, Switch
to Bill, Strategy, Infrastructure, Product Lifecycle, and Enterprise
Management, as well as Security Management, Revenue and Fraud Management, and
Human Resources. Thus, eLexicon™ is the indispensible tool to create maximum
business value from investment decisions."
