Build your Frameworx foundation: Learn to implement a common information model covering every aspect of your business
Speaking the same language, understanding the meaning of the words used and having access to information is of vital importance to the success of any business.
Focused on a major aspect of TM Forum’s Frameworx suite of standards, TM Forum’s Information Framework (SID) Fundamentals training course helps you reach implementation stage quickly by taking the guess work out of creating a common information model. We’ll show you how to take the thousands of words and concepts related to managing a business and create a common and simple way to define and communicate them.
Learn to avoid the common misunderstandings by using a standardized format to identify and define entities, their attributes and the relationships with each other, thereby saving you hundreds of hours of integration project work.
Note: This course is suitable for a non-technical audience. However, being familiar with Unified Modelling language (UML) is suggested.
