Open Digital Architecture (ODA)

ODA transforms business agility, customer experience and operational efficiency by creating simpler IT solutions that are easier and cheaper to deploy, integrate & upgrade.

ODA: Telecom industry's single source of truth

The CEO playbook explains why communication service providers (CSPs) need to transition from a traditional telco to being a platform-ready 'digital' telco providing network and/or connectivity as a service.  But as these CSPs evolve and their services, IT and networks become ever more complex they need a migration path to introduce intelligent operations across all areas of their business so they can become an AI-driven telco.

Open Digital Architecture (ODA) provides the blueprint that CSPs and suppliers/SIs need to change their IT and network systems to create new and differentiated services that improves productivity, reduces maintenance and integration costs whilst enhancing customer experience. It replaces traditional operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) with a new approach that will simplify your design, modernize your build and automate your operation.
