Patni launches Patni atoms™, the industry’s first pre-packaged business process platform for telecom and media companies Tuesday 20 May 2008 PDF Print 20 May - Nice, France – Patni, the global IT services leader, has launched the first market-ready offering for communications service providers to set up core customer- and partner-facing business processes under one consolidated operational model. Patni atoms™ process-centric platform is designed for providers needing to provision new converged services. In the case of a start-up operator in high growth markets, atoms™ enables the licensing of the systems required to ramp up service delivery in a short period of time. The Patni atoms™ platform also accelerates the business transformation program for existing operators and provides a blueprint for future operating models. As providers start using Patni atoms™, the whole community of users can share in the resulting enhanced packaged solution. Patni recently acquired intellectual property from Carphone Warehouse that formed the basis of atoms™. “It’s critical for us to respond rapidly in the entrepreneurial business we are in and the solution we have co-created has enabled us to complete the first phase of our planned roll out at Carphone Warehouse. As the co-creators of Patni atoms™ we have been delighted to have played our part in what is undoubtedly a quantum step forwards in the evolution of telecoms industry operations,” said Simon Post, Chief Technology Officer of Carphone Warehouse. “The solution will be instrumental in allowing us to manage rapid growth in both business scope and scale whilst under-pinning our successful business transformation.” Best-of-breed software providers of CRM, billing and product catalogue are wrapped in a business process framework powered by the TIBCO platform. Pre-configured business processes and consulting & advisory services form the glue which gives the Patni atoms™ best-in-class offering its foundation of strength and flexibility. “Patni atoms™ is a modern take on convergence, applying ‘joined up thinking’ to the operators’ business model,” said Colin Orviss, Senior Vice President of Patni Telecoms Consulting. “Communications service providers want to be able to focus on their business, and not just on technology decisions which are better dealt with by technologists. With the ability to integrate across multiple and discrete platforms at a business process level, Patni atoms™ takes advantage of newly available integration technologies, launched at a time when many operators are facing a serious financial crunch.” Patni atoms™ revolutionises the speed and flexibility with which communications service providers are capable of bringing new services to market by offering a blended, layered approach to supportive business services previously dealt with as separate entities. It offers cost savings, speed, economies of scale and core telco business processes for new entrants or established providers wishing to gear up to deliver a new communications service as quickly and affordably as possible.
