Solution Conformance – with Comments
The following table gives details of the conformance scores granted to the Business Process Frameworx Level 2 & Level 3 processes presented in scope for the cVidya MoneyMap® Business Process Framework Assessment.
|Assessed eTOM Conformance
|Within Level 1:
1.3.2 – Enterprise Risk Management
(Level 1 Processes
|The following Level 2 process elements were submitted in scope for this Level 1 process:
22.214.171.124 – Revenue Assurance Management
Within Level 2:
|The following Level 3 process elements representing the full set of level 3 “children” processes under Revenue Assurance Management were assessed for conformance:
126.96.36.199.1 – Manage Revenue Assurance Policy Framework
Detailed assessment of these level 3 processes did not reveal any particular deviations against the Business Process Framework (eTOM) standard.
|188.8.131.52.1 – Manage Revenue Assurance Policy Framework
Establishing and managing a revenue assurance policy framework is a combination of automated and manual processes; for example for configuration reconciliation, based upon analysis results, the operator can take the data bits from various repositories and compare them to each other in the relevant context and timing in order to identify revenue affecting discrepancies. Also in Case Management and Reconciliation Rules Management, there appears to be significant interaction with the operator of the application; these are the most significant examples where manual support is required to support this process; most other features and functional requirements stated in the eTOM process descriptions are supported in fully automated mode by MoneyMap.
|184.108.40.206.2 – Manage Revenue Assurance Operations
|Scope Fully Conformant
Configuration of most elements in this process requires user interaction – but on using the configured elements, namely the use of KPIs (once configured) for doing the activities mentioned is fully automated.
|220.127.116.11.3 – Support Revenue Assurance Operations
|Scope Fully Conformant
Some specific parts of the product deal with managing and tracking the operation and infrastructure, such as the Cycle Log, and System Audit; on top of that all the infrastructure and process behavior, including resources, costs (when information is available) is logged in the data base, and ultimately converted to OLAP cubes. This permits to use several “general” parts of the application to support and monitor these activities: KPIs, Alarms, Reports, MDA, etc. This is done partly in fully automated mode and partly through partially automated capabilities with some human intervention.
