OSS needs to change. It’s time for network operators to hit the productivity gym!
In this white paper we describe a modern, service-oriented management infrastructure, and specifically measure the Blue Planet Intelligent Automation portfolio and long-stated vision, against our documented recommendations for the future of OSS.
Much is at stake:
- we estimate that automation can reduce the cost of many network operations by 95-99%;
- that service demand intervals can fall by a similar percentage (weeks to minutes);
- that by the latter half of this decade, the industry will be spending between $11B and $27B (median: $18B) annually on software to yield this automation.
- many services are under competitive threat from public cloud vendors who have adopted these Sea Changes as part of their DNA and operate with a very low-cost structure.
