A1 Goes Live with Next Generation Service and Resource Order Management Project, Delivered by BearingPoint

BearingPoint//Beyond’s Infonova digital business platform has enabled A1
to terminate legacy OSS systems with minimal risk and without impacting
daily business operations

AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/A1?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#A1lt;/agt;–BearingPoint
and A1,
Austria’s leading communications provider and part of A1 Telekom Austria
Group, today announced the completion of their Next Generation Service
and Resource Order Management NGSOM project. Using the
BearingPoint//Beyond Infonova
digital business platform
, A1 has significantly reduced the number
of systems and complexity in its OSS (Operations Support System)
environment. This has enabled the creation of a seamless order
management process to support all lines of business, bringing mobile
service orchestration onto one platform together with TV and fixed line
service orchestration.

As part of its NGSOM project, A1 had to undertake a radical approach to
its OSS transformation – which comprised many disparate systems and
complex underlying business-critical processes stemming from a long
history in the telecommunications business. To do so, it needed to
implement a single streamlined, automated platform for consolidated
management of all service order communication to its underlying OSS.

A1 selected BearingPoint//Beyond as it was the vendor it trusted to
deliver a solution within time constraints and with minimal risk.
BearingPoint//Beyond’s Infonova platform works as a non-disruptive
solution layer, allowing single services to be seamlessly swapped onto
the new system without disruption or outage. The converged order
fulfillment and provisioning NGSOM solution can now facilitate unified
communication to approximately 50 downstream systems and has already
enabled the consolidation of six systems.

“We are delighted to be working with one of Europe’s leading operators
as part of its digital transformation project,” said Angus Ward, CEO,
Digital Platform Solutions at BearingPoint. “By leveraging our
technology, A1 now has a reliable foundation to support its future
business goals and a scalable platform to adapt as times change and the
business grows.”

Since the implementation, A1 has seen a significant increase in speed of
order fulfillment, significant improvement of provision failure rates
due to the automation, and better assignment and handling of tasks for
the operations team.

“In a highly cross-functional team of experts of A1 and BearingPoint, we
have mastered the technical and project challenges to replace and
improve existing processes to the new platform without interruption of
ongoing end to end processes and services,” said Alexander Stock, A1
Chief Information Officer. “In BearingPoint, we have found a partner for
our OSS environment that understands our needs and our customers’
expectations and that we can rely on to continue to grow our business.”
