Why do a Conformance Certification Assessment?
When both the buyer and seller of Frameworx certified products and solutions come to the table with a detailed understanding of the scope and degree of conformance in the target business domain, they will jointly reduce the costs and risks associated with both procurement and integration.
As the industry moves more towards adoption of standards the significant savings made from reusable processes can be re-directed towards innovation and competitive differentiation.
An implementation of Frameworx in this context is described as the following:
- Adoption of the Business Process Framework (eTOM) or Information Architecture (SID) by a communication services provider, enterprise operations or IT team.
- Certification of the implementation of the frameworks provides an understanding and documentation of system requirements.
- The resulting report is useful in discussions with suppliers to ascertain compatibility and estimate integration efforts.
- Assessment of an internal Frameworx implementation may also result in a gap analysis that can be used to prioritize future investments.
