Project Overview

In the first phase Network Inventory is used as a migration example to show how CSPs can assure the following:

Rapid consolidation of all data related to Ethernet transport into a single Inventory environment Physical, logical and service layers are consolidated and synchronised, without duplication of data Service Assurance process ability to operate on a single Network Inventory application instance Data synchronisation is driven by fulfillment and service assurance business processes Sophisticated error handling enforces process integrity Approach accelerates business benefits such as RoI, while reducing project cost and timescale.

How does it work?


The Catalyst provides a new generation application data migration platform which has been
specifically designed to de-risk the data migration process by understanding the context within which data is being used within business processes, and to preserve that context throughout the migration process Adaptive Migration Framework: users can separate and migrate application and system data as well as business processes and users, with zero downtime Migration Concurrency: manages both the migration and synchronisation of application data in real-time, which minimises disruption to normal business operations independent migration of existing and future applications, processes, users and data, whilst giving a full business level track and trace of the migration and ongoing synchronisation their business and change it if need be during the migration if business requirements change.

Project Architecture

Migration requirement
- Incrementally migrate only Ethernet to Amdocs OSS 6

Catalyst solution
- Copy and synchronise only the Ethernet services - Catalyst ensures referential data model integrity in source for other business processes to continue during the migration

Implications
- Project costs are reduced to Ethernet services only versus Big Bang migration of non required data

Unlocking data from the Applications

Applications provide a critical part of the picture, supporting business processes, but also create Vendor lock-in through proprietary data models This isnt in anyones interests it just creates inertia the apps vendors have to sell on product excellence, innovation and completeness Next Generation Data Migration has to drive a campaign to free data to move between applications and processes openly reducing friction - and the TM Forum is right behind that message
