Infosys announced it participated in six of the 32 Catalysts at TM Forum Live – winning three of the seven Catalyst Awards at the annual flagship communications industry event, held in Nice, France. The Awards recognized Infosys’ open innovation to co-create commercially viable prototypes of new digital services and business models.
A platform for IoT and Anything as a Service: This Catalyst focused on how operators can attract ecosystem partners to co-create new digital services beyond connectivity through the platform business model. Infosys worked with Vodafone and was recognized for its outstanding performance. The focus was on delivering agility, experience and efficiency to communication service providers and exposing TM Forum Open APIs to third party developers to create new revenue streams enabled by network slicing, edge computing and a service marketplace.
Joint Agile Delivery – Phase II: In this Catalyst, Infosys was recognized for ‘Outstanding Use’ of TM Forum Assets and worked with AT&T, Orange, Telecom Italia. This Catalyst has been recognized for continuing efforts towards contributing APIs and processes to TM Forum and has a vision for a ‘standardized and platform-based’ approach to developing and delivering world-class software that capitalizes on cross-organizational synergies to dramatically improve time to market, quality and cost.
Logical Factory: Virtualizing Manufacturing for Agility: This Catalyst, developed with BT, Telecom Italia and TWI, built on a prior award-winning Catalyst – the Smart Industrial Manufacturing: Robots as a Service, which demonstrated the use of TMF’s Open-APIs in the Industrial Internet-of-Things domain to order and configure Robots-as-a-Service. In this enhanced version, the scope was expanded to the entire manufacturing and maintenance process lifecycle. TM Forum recognized this Catalyst project in the category for ‘Outstanding Ecosystem Design’ using CurateFx – TM Forum’s digital ecosystem design and management SaaS solution.
