Applying IBM's best practices to deliver the TM Forum's Frameworx compliant systems

Complexity within a Communication Service Provider can lead to difficult collaboration among business and IT, causing them to miss the mark with products and services that don't meet business goals. Increase collaboration through actionable enterprise architecture through IBM Rational solutions. Scott Niemann, speaker.

Executing Product Strategy for Software Defined Networking

The network equipment industry is being driven towards Software-Defined Networking (SDN), a technology transition that threatens to commoditize network equipment. Learn why Network Equipment Manufacturers (NEMS) will need to effectively execute their product strategies to either protect or seize market share and margins. Paridhi Verma and Harvey Wong, speakers.

Managing software outsourcing to ensure quality and timely delivery

Software development outsourcing efforts by Communications Service Providers can lead to difficulties in collaborating with their software supply chain to ensure requirements are well understood, causing potential delays in product offering. IBM Rational's GADO offering can help govern the collaboration across this supply chain. Charles Rivet, speaker.

Three keys to accelerating the delivery of mobile services/Accelerating the delivery of mobile services

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) are under pressure to deliver compelling services to their customers in order to reduce churn and at the same raise the average revenue per user. However the process from when a service is first conceived until it's actually deployed can be a very cumbersome process and a inhibitor to a CSP's success. This podcast will cover new and innovative ways for CSPs to accelerate the delivery of high generating mobile services. Scott Niemann, speaker.

Why Agile and DevOps are important for CSPs

Communications service providers (CSPs) have a history of adopting agile methods in their development of software-intensive products. However, the adoption of these methods, especially when continuous integration is involved, are impeded with old approaches to the deployment of these solutions to test labs and, finally, to the running system. In addition, test labs are expensive to setup and run and their preparation and usage can be restricted and time consuming. As well, the ability to respond in a timely manner to requests from the operations group can be impacted. This can lead to issues with customer satisfaction and reduced ARPU. In this podcast, we will discuss some approaches that help with this situation.

IBM Rational's product delivery solutions for CSPs

Communication Service Providers face many challenges in defining, building, and deploying complex software-based systems. IBM Rational telecom solutions and tools are used successfully by various organizations within communications service providers to address their unique challenges in the definition of their products and in the construction and delivery of the software required by such systems.

Agile DevOps is Essential for the Telecommunications Industry

Communications service providers (CSPs) have a history of adopting agile methods in their development of software-intensive products. However, the adoption of these methods, especially when continuous integration is involved, are impeded with old approaches to the deployment of these solutions to test labs and, finally, to the running system. In addition, test labs are expensive to setup and run and their preparation and usage can be restricted and time consuming. As well, the ability to respond in a timely manner to requests from the operations group can be impacted. This webcast will show an approach that helps alleviate many of the issues encountered in linking the development and operations groups.

Enterprise Agility Through Collaborative Lifecycle Management for Telecommunications

Communications service providers must take advantage of new service offerings and maximize profit to remain competitive in an overcrowded marketplace. Unfortunately providers often struggle to deploy services quickly because OSS and BSS functions are not integrated within new and legacy architectures. Which means while a service could potentially go to market to realize profit, it often times is delayed until the appropriate supporting IT infrastructure is in place. This is because silos exist between IT and the Network which make it difficult to deploy new services effectively. This webcast will show new innovations from IBM rational which use the Rational Jazz platform in conjunction with TM Forum’s industry standards to enable providers to work agile and to streamline Network and IT activities to boost profitability.

Enterprise Architecture and Project Portfolio Management : Different sides of the same coin?

This webcast will bring up the topic of Enterprise Architecture (EA) and Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and how an organization can get additional value by combining the capabilities of these solutions.

How Cloud Computing Will Enable Telecom Operators To Do More With Less

This webcast focuses on the relevance of cloud computing to Communications Service Providers (CSPs) as users of the cloud. From the enterprise IT perspective, development and collaboration with Systems Integrators or ISVs will be covered. Additionally, the network part of the CSP, as it pertains to deployment and collaboration with Network Equipment Vendors, will be discussed. Delivery of the cloud vision and the underlying challenges faced by CSPs require adoption of best practices and various intangibles, for example, seeking a trusted cloud computing adviser.

Test Virtualization for Telecom Industry

Test virtualization can enable CSPs and NEPs to keep capEx down while testing complex services early in the development cycle, reducing overall costs and time to market while improving quality.

Transforming the Telecommunications Enterprise through Agility

Learn how IBM Rational addresses this balancing of business and IT strategies, through an agile collaborative platform which contains key telecommunications industry standards from the Telemanagement Forum (TM Forum) that CSPs can use to plan, optimize, and integrate key operation and business support systems (OSS/BSS) in order to meet the demand of next generation networks.

Testing Is Not My Job, It Is OUR Job!

How collaboration between CSPs and NEPs is key to reducing time to service for equipment and applications. This webcast will discuss how solutions from Rational and Spirent provide the testing capabilities supporting the different interactions between NEPs and CSPs, significantly reducing the total time to accept new equipment and applications into service.

Transforming Operations: Managing Outsourced Development in Telecommunications

Communications Service Providers are large users of outsourcing to help them in their software development efforts - and this trend is continuing, especially with the availability of lower-cost, overseas software development firms and crowd-sourcing. But how do you ensure requirements are met and the software is delivered in a timely matter with the expected quality? Learn how properly outsourced telecommunications can cut cost and expedite growth.
