Management World 2010

Daily Features

Forumville: Your Destination for Innovative Business and Technology Solutions

Forumville, located on the third level of the Acropolis Convention Center, has been a hotbed of technology and business innovation and real-world demonstrations this week at Management World 2010.

Forumville features 7 themed zones that reflect current hot topics in the industry. Each of these zones map to a Management World Conference track as well, enabling you to create synergy between what you learn in the conference and what you experience in Forumville. If you are planning to use TM Forum best practices, frameworks and interfaces, Forumville is a must-see destination on the show floor at Management World.

Within each zone, we will exhibit a range of TM Forum programs and our unique multi-member Catalyst Demonstration Projects

This time, we have a record 15 Catalyst demonstrations with 20 service providers and 44 suppliers participating. These Catalysts are the highlight of Forumville – bringing innovative, not-seen-anywhere-else ideas and solutions to life. Catalysts leverage leading-edge IT concepts and couple them with TM Forum best practices and standards to create real, deployable answers to real, bottom-line challenges.

The Catalyst projects and TM Forum program staff members and team members will be on hand throughout the event to give demonstrations and have one-on-one discussions. In addition, each Catalyst project will be presenting in the Forumville theater, featuring information about the business drivers for their project, how they met them, what they learned and what they will contribute back to the TM Forum community to learn from and reuse.

In addition, there will be a series of live 30-minute presentations featuring introductions to key TM Forum standards and best practices, so if you are new to TM Forum you can get an overview and learn how to get started using them in your company.
