NetCracker's Service Order Management enables Communications Service Providers to automate provisioning of multi-vendor, next-generation products and services. It provides functionality for service order decomposition, streamlines the execution of the order provisioning flow, and facilitates service order lifecycle management.
As part of Service Fulfillment & Assurance, Service Order Management is seamlessly pre-integrated with NetCracker’s Service Inventory, Service Information Management, and Service Activation and ensures automated service configuration and flow-through provisioning.
Service Order Management includes the following components:
Order Decomposition: enables product order parsing into underlying service orders based on product-to-service associations and CSP-specific business rules
Service Design: allows CFS and RFS specifications to be instantiated based on actual resource data and application of the corresponding business rules
Order Orchestration: enables dynamic, real-time, data-driven task management of dependencies between all tasks in the main flow and sub flows of multi-vendor service fulfillment processes
Key benefits include:
Streamlined and automated cross-domain order provisioning
Improved customer experience through shorter service delivery times
Reduced time-to-market for new services through unified business logic and service provisioning mechanisms
Reduced order fallouts through end-to-end order lifecycle management and data transparency
Increased revenues through high-quality delivery of personalized product offerings
Enhanced partner relations through centralized, multi-vendor service provisioning
Minimized integration and operational costs and higher process efficiency
