PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is today announcing that it is to launch a new portfolio of OSS (operations support systems) capabilities within its Motive portfolio of customer experience solutions. The aim of the portfolio is to harness the benefits of cloud technologies to reduce costs and enhance services via a totally new approach to automating a service provider’s operations.

The Motive Dynamic Operations portfolio creates a clear path for service providers to migrate to the cloud by making their operational infrastructure as agile as the virtualized network and data center. The portfolio innovates in three unique ways: a new foundation that can dynamically identify and track all network resources; fully automated, programmable OSS that can fulfil orders and assure services; and a ‘self-healing’ environment driven by big data network analytics that evolves from automated recovery to predictive management.

Today’s OSS environment is highly fragmented, manually intensive and costly to maintain, making it a substantial barrier to the dynamic delivery of cloud services., The Motive Dynamic Operations portfolio – to be launched later this year - will enable operators to realize the promise of virtualized networks offered by NFV (Network Function Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) technologies.

OSS refers to the systems service providers use to manage their networks including service fulfillment to deliver new services and service assurance to keep the network running properly. While service providers are rapidly embracing innovations around IP networks, cloud technology and virtualized network functions, industry innovation in OSS has lagged.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
