Ep 26 – Avoid vendor lock-in with TM Forum Open APIs

TM Forum’s Open APIs are giving telcos a way to build IT solutions that are easier and cheaper to deploy, integrate, and upgrade. They give telcos freedom from vendor and cloud lock-in, driving lower costs and increased flexibility. They’re also a boost for disruptive startups (like Totogi!) that can use them to develop and deliver solutions with 10 times the functionality at one-tenth of the price.

I’m so psyched that telcos can now avoid lock-in – and even create their own applications – that I did a talk about them. It’s called, “Ride the public cloud dragon and avoid vendor lock-in by using the TM Forum Open APIs.” It’s so good that I decided to turn it into this podcast. Hit play to hear about:

  • Why your current BSS sucks [3:42]
  • Why API-based BSS is a far better solution [5:18]
  • How leveraging the tech stack of the public cloud can be a game changer for your business [8:08]
  • Why it’s time to change your thinking about the best way to build applications – and gain scalability, flexibility and cost savings along the way [11:39]
