Systems integration has always a big issue in the telecom back office. Yet history tells us that it’s a messy and risky exercise when done on a large scale.
Just about every telecom IT department out there has been stung at one time or another by a very expensive integration program that either failed or took too long. Yet at so many operators, the need for integration has only grown because the number and/or complexity of business systems has expanded.
Well now you have another option to systems integration, and I’ve written a white paper on this subject entitled: Enabling IT Innovation: How to Blaze an Access Path to Siloed Enterprise Data and Avoid the High Cost of Systems Integration..
The paper explains a new data access method called “semantic search” and one of leading proponents of this approach, Ontology Systems, sponsored this paper and gave me three hours worth of briefings so I could fully understood its significance. Black Swan readers will recall we briefly covered Ontology’s approach in a previous interview.
If you are not familiar with semantic search, I think you’ll find the paper highly interesting reading: in my opinion, this is a major paradigm shift in the way telecoms will deliver better data agility.
Here are the main themes in the paper:
