Optiva is Now a Telco-Focused Google Cloud Technology Partner

TORONTO, Feb. 22, 2018 /CNW/ – Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN) dba Optiva (“Optiva”), an innovative software company that delivers mission-critical monetization and subscriber management solutions to leading communication service providers (CSPs) globally, today announced that Optiva is now a Google Cloud Technology Partner.

“The work we are doing with Google Cloud is a game-changer for CSPs, bringing to their BSS/OSS systems the speed, scalability and savings they need to win in their markets,” said Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva. “We are incredibly excited to offer Google Cloud Platform deployments to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) across the board for our customers and to integrate an unparalleled database in Cloud Spanner, which offers incredible performance.”

The company’s work with Google Cloud demonstrates its anticipation of market trends around digital transformation, its focus on its customers’ success and its investment in research and development to elevate its software. Optiva will kick off their partnership with Google Cloud at the 2018 Mobile World Congress Feb. 26 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain, and jointly showcase two new innovations:

  • Optiva Charging Engine™, with Google Cloud Spanner, increasing scalability and generating 10 times faster processing speed at one-tenth the cost of Oracle databases.*
  • Optiva Revenue Management Suite™, delivering 80 percent lower TCO when deployed on Google Cloud Platform, when compared to on premise Optiva deployments.

Optiva is also offering the 10x Challenge — an opportunity for customers using Optiva Charging Engine™ or Redknee Unified to see a 10 times performance improvement in their own environments with their own data, using Cloud Spanner and Google Cloud Platform. This proof of concept is available at no cost to customers.**
