Nearly all CSPs have implemented commercial inventory management systems for their new services and many are conducting transformation projects in order to consolidate the legacy systems that are still in use.


Our last report to focus on inventory management (IM) systems was published nearly a decade ago. At that time, IM systems were just making their way into a market dominated by spreadsheets and home-grown relational database systems. Now, nearly all communications service providers (CSPs) have implemented IM systems from commercial vendors for their new services and many are conducting transformation projects to consolidate the many legacy systems that are still in use.

This report focuses on:

  • the functionality of modern IM systems
  • how IM systems fit into the overall BSS/OSS architecture
  • how modern IM system transformation projects are implemented
  • 23 vendors in the IM systems market, particularly the top-six in terms of revenue in 2012 - Ericsson, NEC/NetCracker, Amdocs, Oracle, Visionael and Comarch
  • the pricing models that leading vendors have adopted.

This report is aimed at:

  • newcomers to this area, who will find substantial tutorial information and a review of the major players in the IM systems market
  • all CSPs (fixed and mobile) that are embarking on a transformation project to replace and consolidate their IM systems and seek to understand more about the advantages and disadvantages of the various strategies
  • CSPs that wish to know the areas of tried-and-tested - and speculative - innovations in modern IM systems and understand the best current practices
  • software vendors that wish to benchmark their IM systems against an industry maturity curve.
