The latest information from TM Forum.
Video content on TM Forum's Frameworx suite of standards, our programs, testimonials and case studies.
Suppliers, vendors, and systems integrators can validate their products against these TM Forum Frameworx standards and best practices: Business Process Framework (eTOM) and Information Framework (SID). The results help determine the extent to which the product is consistent with best-in-class industry standards and identify areas for improvement.
Frameworx product conformance certification is only issued against individual products & processes and not companies or individuals. For a full list of assessed products and their assessment results see Product Assessment Results.
Importantly, the assessment results provide an objective view of the product’s conformance that can be used to market and sell the product to the growing number of Service Providers demanding Frameworx conformance.
The benefits from a supplier perspective include:
Business Process Framework (eTOM) is the industry's common business and functional process architecture. Information Framework (SID) also a Frameworx component, provides a common reference model for Enterprise information that service providers, software providers, and systems integrators use to describe management information. Providing consistent data definitions and models speeds development and improves communication between Service Provider and Supplier, as well as between interoperating Suppliers.
The Conformance Certification Assessment process is described here.
Conformance Certification is only issued against products and not companies or individuals.
Report Misuse: Frameworx conformance is an important part of enabling the communications industry to maintain profitability as it migrates to new services and new business models. Gaining the conformance mark represents a significant investment by both suppliers and service providers. If you feel a company is misusing the conformance mark then please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
