Zero Touch Orchestration, Operations and Management

The Digital service industry has moved beyond the point of planning for transformation and is now taking the first steps on the journey. Although different businesses are following different paths, for CSPs at least it is clear that deployment of virtualized and software defined network technology is well underway. They must now start to maximize the benefits of this technology, over and above simple substitution of existing functionality. This means that the focus is on assets that can be used in the design and realization of processes and systems, and enable the procurement, deployment and operation of them as part of a profitable business. In 2017 we released the first complete blueprint for an automated hybrid management platform that enables virtualized infrastructure to begin to unlock its potential, and we will be rapidly building new capabilities into that framework.

The wide-ranging changes in the communication services business brought about by market changes, and the technology changes with virtualization and 5G will touch every aspect of the business, including a wholesale change to agile DevOps style operations supported by a completely reimagined OSS and BSS. The TM Forum is at the forefront of developing common solutions to the challenge of enabling a business to thrive in this new environment, and monetize the opportunity of the new technology.
