Comviva has announced it will collaborate with IBM to deliver its next-generation BlueMarble Solution on the IBM Cloud for telecoms.

The solution will power the digital transformation for communication service providers (CSPs) around the world in the 5G and Edge era.

It allows CSPs the chance to “modernise their business platforms without having to go through large and complex transformation cycles” according to the company.

Manoranjan Mohapatra, CEO at Comviva said, “5G introduces fundamental changes to the way Business Support Solutions work for evolving digital services.

“It is essential for CSPs to embrace Cloud-native technologies that provide differentiated competitive advantage for supporting new revenue models.

“Our BlueMarble solution is 5G native and now ready to run on the IBM Cloud for Telecommunications. The integrated solution is designed to empower CSPs with a future proof next-generation platform for rapid transformation and monetization of existing network infrastructure as they prepare for 5G evolution.”

Comviva’s parent company Tech Mahindra is focusing on investing in emerging technologies and solutions that enable digital transformation.

Tech Mahindra is part of IBM’s partner ecosystem and has worked on the IBM Cloud for Telecommunication to help network equipment providers, independent software vendors and hardware partners accelerate business transformation.

Bill Lambertson, VP for IBM Global said: “We are excited to bring together Comviva's BlueMarble order capture solution with IBM's Sterling Order Management using Telco standard TM Forum Open APIs that are enabled on IBM Cloud for Telecommunications.

“We look forward to extending this API driven integration on joint client engagements.”
