End-to-end Solution: Network Analytics

Gain deep insight into Network activities to optimize customer experience and operations

Communications service providers need to manage hundreds of millions, and often billions, of network events per day to deliver services. Harnessing this information flow is of huge value to them to enhance their network operations, detect fraud or improve customer experience. SAP can help telecom service providers to make the most of this large volume of data thanks to a combination of organic and partner solutions well suited to the Network world.

End-to-end Solution: Billing and Revenue Innovation Management

Monetizing service-based businesses with flexible pricing and enhanced cash collection

How can companies differentiate themselves when multiple providers are all offering the same service? By adapting their pricing models faster than the competition. To do so, companies must have the ability to make pricing model changes in hours and days, not weeks and months. What’s more, companies must be able to bring partner solutions and reseller partners into multi-sided business models; revenue capture and revenue share processes must be interlinked to ensure transparent win-win relationships. Lastly, it's critical to ensure that business scales at low TCO. To do this, companies' back-offices must handle the order-to-cash process with reliable, automated processing through every step – from order capture, to pricing, billing, revenue share, collections, financial customer care, revenue recognition, and analytics. SAP solutions for the consume-to-cash process allow this kind of business flexibility while ensuring reliable operations.
