Version 16.0 of the Digital Services Reference Architecture introduces following changes: – Illustrating how some example business scenarios, implement the DSRA concepts; – Mapping TM Forum APIs to Support Services; – Introducing the Digital Service component and Digital Service Management API; – Extending some of the Support Service Descriptions.

As more new products are assembled out of building blocks that are provided by a range of digital service providers, there is great opportunity, and growing complexity to be managed. The opportunity comes from placing a wide range of capabilities at a product designer fingertips. The complexity comes from the distributed nature of those very capabilities for example, my product may rely on the performance of your building block, building blocks from a 3rd enterprise delivered over a set of network capabilities provided by yet another enterprise a network provider.

This digital economy needs a set of standards and functions that allow product composers to learn about these capabilities, configure and fulfill them, monitor them, understand dependencies, and execute what may be multi-dimensional commercial and revenue sharing models among end users, component service suppliers, advertisers, etc.
