Yesterday at the Billing & OSS World Conference and Expo in Chicago, Oracle was honored as the winner of two Billing & OSS World 2008 Excellence Awards, recognizing Oracle(R) Communications Billing and Revenue Management as the Best Revenue Management Solution and Oracle Communication and Mobility Server as the Best New Product. The annual awards recognize the leaders - vendors, service providers and integrators -- in the development and deployment of billing and operations support systems (OSS) technologies and solutions.
Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management provides a single platform to manage revenue in real time across any customer type, network service, payment method, business model or geography - helping to rapidly convert transactions into revenue. The multi-service, real-time nature of the platform enables communications service providers (CSPs) to quickly roll out cutting-edge next-generation services to the market, and to reduce revenue leakage by helping ensure all usage and charges are rated and recorded properly.
A key component of the Oracle Service Delivery Platform, Oracle Communication and Mobility Server (OCMS) provides the underlying software infrastructure and services that make a host of carrier-grade telephony and multimedia services possible. OCMS enables CSPs and developers to easily build, deploy and manage complex, converged services, while integrating with existing business support system (BSS) and OSS applications to generate revenue efficiently and deliver a high quality customer experience.
Billing & OSS World received more than 90 submissions for the awards, and a select judging panel of experts from the billing and OSS community narrowed the field to three finalists for each of eight categories. Billing & OSS World Group Publisher Mike Saxby and Editor In Chief Tim McElligott presented the awards at a ceremony on April 30.
"Oracle is honored to receive the Billing & OSS World Excellence Awards for Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management and Oracle Communication and Mobility Server. These prestigious awards are a testament to Oracle's commitment to developing the industry's most compelling and fully featured communications application suite, enabling global service providers to rapidly deliver and profit from next-generation IP services," said Bhaskar Gorti, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications.
"Our panel of experts judged Oracle's achievements as exemplary among its peers. Billing & OSS World congratulates Oracle and is pleased to acknowledge its products as examples of excellence in billing and OSS for the communications industry," said Mike Saxby, group publisher, Biling & OSS World.
