January 28 – Dublin, Ireland – Openmind Networks, in partnership with Jaspersoft, has been selected as a finalist in the European IT Awards in the Business Intelligence Category for the deployment of the Assure business intelligence and reporting solution which serves to complement Openmind’s Traffic Control SMSC platform for mobile network operators. The winners in each category will be announced at the awards gala dinner on 10th February 2011 at the London Marriott, Grosvenor Square.
Assure improves the performance of an operator’s messaging business by delivering the most relevant data in a reliable and timely manner. It is built on Jaspersoft’s open source business intelligence, the world’s most widely used BI software, with almost 11 million product downloads worldwide and more than 12,500 commercial customers in 100 countries. Jaspersoft provides a web-based, open and modular approach to the evolving business intelligence needs of the enterprise and is the only BI vendor enabling true multi-tenancy while providing a common platform for on-premise, virtualized, SaaS and Cloud deployments.
With Assure, messaging data is accessed via a web interface that allows managers to view reports and dashboards, manage KPIs and perform ad hoc analysis on messaging related usage data. The web portal provides a dashboard view that can be customized for each user. From this dashboard, users can view existing reports, request new reports, or schedule reports for execution in the future.
Assure can be used to underpin revenue assurance processes for the mobile operator, as it provides a business level view of messaging service usage derived from low level traffic data generated on Traffic Control itself. This low level data is comprised of specially formatted usage records designed to provide Assure with all the information necessary to generate detailed reports.
Assure provides operators with direct access to a library of technical and business messaging reports and a reduction in the time required to extract and produce reports. By using the module, operators are able to better plan by tracking trends and monitoring the take-up or rejection of certain messages ensuring that the pricing and marketing strategies are built around what exactly is going on. Fraud can also be prevented by detecting messaging irregularities with Assure.
