Oracle Communications Data Model Released

Oracle Communications Data Model 11.2.5 was released for strengthening communications service providers (CSPs) to analyze multiple data types – including revenue, customer, network fault and performance, provisioning and service activation data.

CSPs are facing a growing data management challenge as global data demand is scaling at an unprecedented rate.  As their customers demand a deluge of new services, CSPs need instant data analytics that enable them to act quickly to meet technological, regulatory and business challenges.

A key component of the Oracle Exadata Intelligent Warehouse Solution for Communications, Oracle Communications Data Model is a standards-based, pre-built data warehouse with a comprehensive database schema.  The solution maintains sophisticated trending and data mining capabilities, as well as a wide array of dashboards, all focused specifically on communications industry business challenges.

The product provides CSPs with critical business insights – such as customer network usage behavior, average revenue per user (ARPU), order fallout rates, dropped call rates, and marketing campaign effectiveness – to mitigate customer churn and deliver highly targeted offers.

In contrast to competitive offerings – which are typically delivered as costly bespoke professional services projects – Oracle Communications Data Model is a pre-built, extensible software solution, certified by the TM Forum, which can be quickly installed and easily upgraded.

“Today, CSPs are often frustrated in their efforts to apply analytics due to the difficulty of obtaining data from multiple sources and fitting it into usable models," said Larry Goldman, partner, head of telecoms software research, Analysys Mason. "With this release, Oracle is providing an adapter product that bridges the gap between its charging system and its analytic platform."

“Communications service providers are increasingly facing a data challenge and having the ability to process and analyze that data to make timely, informed decisions is more critical than ever before.  Oracle Communications Data Model 11.2.5, along with the Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control Adapter for Oracle Communications Data Model, provides CSPs with the analytical capabilities and unified system they need to help ensure optimal efficiency and drive real business results,” said Liam Maxwell, vice president, products, Oracle Communications.

Oracle released Oracle Communications Data Model 11.2.5 with many new benefits, including Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition, which can generate reports on mobile devices such as the iPhone and the iPad.

The new product will accelerate time to deployment, reduce integration costs and risks as well as to provide an upgrade path for CSPs, Oracle is also introducing pre-built extract, load and transform (ELT) adapters for Oracle Communications Data Model.  Release 11.2.5 includes Oracle Communications Ne

These enhancements enable CSPs to process customer charging information more efficiently to deliver near real-time data for predictive analytics on potential prepaid as well as postpaid customer churn, ARPU and customer usage statistics.  In addition, the pre-built integration between Oracle Communications Data Model and Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control unifies analytics systems for CSPs and helps reduce the time and costs associated with implementing an enterprise data warehouse.

  • I disagree when you say “Oracle Communications Data Model is a standards-based, pre-built data warehouse with a comprehensive database schema”

    Its a data model & not a pre-built data warehouse. To make a DWH you need to have a model, the platform, the database. data model alone is not the DWH. Oracle is new in the data model domain and it is widely known that the oracle data model is a copy/paste of some of the existing logical data models in the industry.

    Oracle Comms Data Model is the only data model which is TMF-SID compliant data model in the industry where as MOST of the data models are just ERWIN models and when you see the practical implementations in telcos not more then 3 to 5% of model is used rest of all is the copy/past of source system transactional model and TONS of services around it….
