About TM Forum's Catalyst Program

Facilitating meaningful collaboration among our members is at the heart of TM Forum’s mission, and nothing epitomizes collaboration more than TM Forum Catalyst projects.

Catalysts are rapid fire proof-of-concept projects which both inform and leverage TM Forum best practices and standards, connecting service providers, technology suppliers, and global enterprises to create innovative solutions to common industry challenges. Catalysts are aligned to the key Strategic Programs of the Forum as well as the content and agenda of our flagship TM Forum Live! events where Catalyst project teams display the findings of their 4-6 month projects via live demonstrations.

At the culmination of these projects, Catalysts display their findings with live demonstrations at TM Forum flagship events. These flagship events are held twice a year and a new set of Catalysts presents at each event. The most recent set of Catalyst projects presented at TM Forum Live! Digital Disruption 2014 on December 8-11, 2014 in San Jose, California. The next set will present at TM Forum Live! in June 2015 in Nice, France.
