In the last 10 years, the way people communicate, consume information
and enjoy entertainment has changed dramatically and as a result,
communication service providers and suppliers are being forced to adapt
and define their role in the new ecosystem. To help the industry thrive
and survive in this world of digital everything, TM
Forum today unveiled its Digital
Services Initiative, targeted specifically at helping businesses
with the end-to-end management challenges of complex digital services.
TM Forum's Digital Services Initiative is built on a vision of ensuring
the transparency, efficiency and agility needed to accelerate a
thriving, open digital economy. The new Initiative provides guidance,
best practices and practical tools that help businesses effectively
deliver enterprise-grade digital services in complex, multi-cloud
environments. The Initiative also facilitates the development of
vertically-focused digital services including eHealth and Smart
Grid-important issues for TM Forum's members today.
"As businesses navigate through the digital services maze, TM Forum's
Digital Services Initiative is leading the way by offering unique tools
and applications that make the journey as smooth as possible," said Nik
Willetts, chief strategy officer, TM Forum. "With a mission to inform,
innovate, accelerate and optimize, our Initiative-developed in
partnership with our membership base of the world's largest service
providers and software suppliers-helps businesses deliver on the
promises of the digital world."
