MATRIXX Software Unleashes Transformative Digital Monetization Solution

The News: MATRIXX Software, a provider of converged charging and monetization, unveiled its digital monetization solution, aimed at transforming the traditional business support systems (BSS) architecture and enabling communication service providers (CSPs) to retire legacy billing systems and processes.

MATRIXX Software Unleashes Transformative Digital Monetization Solution

Analyst Take: MATRIXX Software is using the TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA) to deliver monetization based on a modern digital business architecture to enable new use cases that existing billing and charging systems cannot support. Built to operate in a multivendor landscape, MATRIXX Software’s digital monetization solution is designed to address the challenges of costly, siloed billing platforms and processes that frustrate CSPs.

The Futurum Group thinks MATRIXX gains a sales and marketing boost by re-shining the spotlight on ODA and its integral role in advancing software interoperability across digital monetization environments. Fundamentally, ODA replaces traditional operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) with a new approach to building software for the telecom sphere. This new approach opens up a market for standardized, cloud-native software components and enables CSPs and suppliers to invest in IT for innovative and differentiated services rather than intensively manual maintenance and integration.

The new MATRIXX solution should be able to fulfill the topmost CSP digital monetization demands encompassing real-time insights, swifter revenue collection, streamlined architecture, and increased competitiveness, all key to providing the standardized monetization layer for every customer type, service, and payment model. This approach can ensure readiness for fast-evolving business models, including the ongoing buildout and activation of 5G Standalone (SA) capabilities across mobile networks.

Specifically, it is clear that agile CSPs, such as Telstra, Verizon, and Orange, are strategically committed to moving away from silo-bound, complex BSS implementations to digital-centric offering models that uplift the customer experience by providing transparent billing information on a consistent basis. As such, MATRIXX is providing the digital foundation for any agile CSPs to deliver the value-based pricing for devices, services, and use cases that is essential to enduring competitive success.

Looking Ahead

The ODA architecture framework is expected to provide a common language, design principles, and specifications for standardized, interoperable software components and open application programming interfaces (APIs). It can provide a path for CSPs to transition away from legacy BSS to a digital architecture based on convergence, composability, and cloud-native principles (the three “Cs”). By fully aligning with the ODA framework, MATRIXX Software’s digital monetization solution can ensure that monetization functions are reusable and unified, delivering real-time revenue and improving CSP business outcomes.
