The Rise of Telecom SaaSBrian Hedstrom
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has become a major software delivery model for many business Enterprises. From Customer Relationship Management (CRM) to accounting to service desk management, Enterprises are turning to SaaS for nearly every facet of running their businesses. However, for Network Service Providers, managing and operating their networks has traditionally been a centralized, on-premise, and often homegrown, software solution approach.
There are many advantages for a Telco SaaS model for managing and operationalized network services. Reduced operations costs along with greater control over business operation automation are realized through fewer operations resources required for network and service management. In addition, SaaS is architected in a web-services architecture that enables integration and alignment with many other applications via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
Brian Hedstrom, Co-founder and CEO of Cataworx, says “The rise of Telecom SaaS is upon us as we see more cloud Enterprise software models infiltrating the traditional telecom BSS/OSS space.”
Cataworx has a vision to simplify how Network Service Providers buy and sell network services. We are developing a BSS (Quote-to-Cash) SaaS solution to help commercial services product owners efficiently define, specify, catalog and market their business services. Potential wholesale service customers will see greater efficiencies and turnaround times in the pre-sales process.
Cataworx, Inc. based in Boulder, Colorado is redefining how telecommunication service providers and wholesale operators buy and sell services.
Based on an innovative mix of industry standard data models, intelligent onboarding technology and analytics, Cataworx’s pre-sales business-to-business platform enables near real-time exchange of services and offerings data.
