Microsoft and LogicaCMG partner to reach telcos
Posted on 2-Oct-2007 22:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



LogicaCMG plc and Microsoft Corp. have formed a relationship to launch an initiative called “The Service Factory.”

The Service Factory is a new program designed to establish and operate a service creation and delivery environment using partner products alongside Microsoft Connected Services Framework. In cooperation with LogicaCMG developers, partners, independent software vendors and operators, an extensive set of innovative services will be developed ready for deployment in a telco-grade environment.

According to Microsoft, the Service Factory will enable telecommunications companies to deliver innovative, converged services with a consistent user experience across domains, and to embrace the Telco 2.0 concept by empowering network-based mashups.

Microsoft Connected Services Framework is a server-based software product that provides the foundation to aggregate, deliver and manage different services, whether traditional telecommunications services such as voice and data, Web services or third-party content services. It offers a network-independent, flexible service creation and delivery environment that is accessible to one of the largest IT professional and developer communities in the world.

“The telecoms sector is under intense pressure, and operators are looking for competitive advantage at every turn,” said Thomas Breuer, managing director of Telecoms and Media at LogicaCMG. “To do this quickly and remain one step ahead of the competition on a global scale, operators are looking to the larger IT suppliers for innovation and economies of scale. This relationship between LogicaCMG and Microsoft offers exactly that. Combining LogicaCMG’s total service provision, global reach and more than 2,500 experienced professionals with Microsoft’s proven pedigree and established services will help operators get a much faster time to market for new services.”

“This is ultimately about enabling operators to prosper from the significant changes happening across the Internet, IT and telecoms,” said Terry McGuigan, director of Global Partners, Communications Sector at Microsoft. “By being able to rapidly develop and deploy innovative new customer experiences, operators can transform their businesses. The Service Factory aims to help our customers make the transition to Telco 2.0, reducing not only time to market for new services but cost as well.”
