The Business Process Framework (eTOM) serves as the blueprint for standardizing and categorizing business activities (in the form of process elements) that will help set direction and the starting point for development and integration of Business and Operations Support Systems (BSS/OSS). An important additional application for the Process Framework is that it helps to support and guide work by TM Forum members and others to develop Frameworx solutions. it provides an industry-standard reference point, when considering internal process reengineering needs, partnerships, alliances, and general working agreements with other enterprises, and for suppliers into such enterprises, the Process Framework outlines potential boundaries of process solutions, and the required functions, inputs, and outputs that must be supported by process solutions.
