Business support systems (BSS) within communications service provider (CSP) organizations have been under strain for a long time. The fundamental issue is customization, which is ongoing, with systems requiring continual maintenance by expert engineers.

  • Why the BSS business model is broken
  • The difference between best-of-breed and best-of-suite solutions
  • Why radical transformation is required
  • How the public cloud can give CSPs answers for the needed changes
  • How to ensure CSPs are getting a truly cloud-native, productize BSS from vendors
