The Microsoft Dynamics 365 telecommunications accelerator accelerates the development of innovative subscriber management, space management, service management, and network operations applications on the Microsoft Power Platform. Network operators, wireless and telephone networks, internet service providers, any owner or supplier of network infrastructure, independent software suppliers, or general system integrators that operate in the telecommunications industry will benefit from this solution.
What is included in the first version of the Telecommunications Accelerator?
The accelerator is designed for network operators, internet providers, and telecommunications companies based on the TM Forum Open Digital Framework (ODF) requirements. According to Microsoft’s chief program manager Martin Wahl, ETI Software Solutions was a “funding partner” with a “greater influence of the scope and functionalities” for the introduction of the accelerator.
The accelerator extends the Popular Data Model with sixteen industry-specific entities. One of the most important additions, according to Wahl, is the Place entity, which is expressed in the ODF and distinguishes both a Geographic Place and a Local Place (other industry-specific entities).
The accelerator’s first version includes two prototype model-driven applications. “Place Management solution” provides PCF controls that integrate Azure Maps capabilities via API as well as Power BI dashboards. “Telco Sales” builds on Dynamics 365 Sales by including features such as service address monitoring, street address normalization, serviceability checks, and lead qualification.
“The aim is to enable the rapid development and deployment of new solutions or automation to address current business challenges including improved address management, improved field service, and truck management, improved subscriber management, personalization in packaging and bundling, network management, customer self-care, network optimization, and planning, or any other business optimization,” says Wahl.
