The Power of a Fully-Digital BSS

In today's hyper-connected world, telecommunications companies play a pivotal role in keeping the world connected. To meet the ever-evolving needs of customers, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are starting to embrace digital Business Support Systems (BSS) and looking for a suitable solution for themselves.

Understanding the digital BSS is a key step in the decision making process and answering the question: Is it right for us? In this blog post, we delve into the world of digital BSS, explore its significance for CSPs and understand the digital transformation processes driving this revolution.

What is a fully-digital BSS?

A fully-digital BSS provides a set of crucial tools and technologies that enable CSPs to manage their operations efficiently and offer innovative services to their customers in a timely manner in competitive market conditions. It brings CSPs into the fully-digital realm and takes advantage of cloud-native technologies.

Even more so, transition to a fully-digital BSS represents a shift in a mindset of the company. It’s important to note that digital transformation is not only changing the software. There are a couple of other things that are changing as well.

Going with a fully-digital BSS - like Globe GFiber Prepaid did - will change the way people work in terms of processes related to a BSS. Having agility to change and adapt approaches will become standard (as opposed to being hamstrung by legacy systems) and the flexible nature of fully-digital BSS may come to fruition.

CSPs that opt for this way of handling their business support system will most likely be looking for a cloud-native SaaS solutions.

Also, CSPs will be looking to be able to flexibly change the processes and digital BSS allows exactly that.

The Impact of Digital BSS within CSPs

Enhanced Customer Experience: Digital BSS empowers telcos to provide a seamless, personalized customer experience. This includes faster issue resolution, tailored service plans, and improved self-service options.

Revenue Growth Potential

By leveraging convergent billing and pricing flexibility, telcos can create innovative service bundles, resulting in increased revenue streams.

Operational Efficiency

Digital BSS automates many processes, reducing manual intervention and the margin for errors, ultimately leading to cost savings.

Cost Savings With Digital BSS

Replatforming the legacy BSS to digital version will at first probably sound expensive, but in reality it’s actually all the opposite. Cloud technology gives the opportunity to cut the cost of server rooms and on-prem equipment and maintenance costs. Also, more efficient processes with digital BSS will boost productivity of the company and directly save costs in the various segments.

Moving from Legacy Systems to Fully-Digital BSS

Legacy systems, which often involve outdated technology and complex processes, can hinder the growth and innovation of a CSP. Here's how a fully-digital BSS is replacing these systems:

BSS for Greenfield

When telcos launch new services or enter new markets, digital BSS helps them set up efficient, scalable systems from scratch (greenfield deployments), avoiding the limitations of legacy systems.

BSS-OSS Convergence

The integration of Business Support Systems (BSS) and Operations Support Systems (OSS) streamlines end-to-end operations. This convergence is vital for offering new services promptly and efficiently.

Digital Transformation

Digital transformation in telco companies goes beyond just adopting new technology. It's about changing the way these businesses operate and deliver value. It encompasses the following key aspects:

Understanding Digital Transformation Processes

Telco companies employ comprehensive strategies that include assessing current operations, identifying areas for improvement, and defining a roadmap for digital transformation.

Business Architecture and Digital Transformation

Creating a robust business architecture is crucial for aligning digital initiatives with the overall business strategy. This ensures that technology investments yield the desired results.
