Comviva has launched BlueMarble Compact BSS, a comprehensive, cloud-native, 5G-ready solution, that leverages Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365 and TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA). BlueMarble Compact BSS will bring communication service providers (CSPs) to the forefront of platform economy – building services for a larger ecosystem faster and efficiently, making them available to enterprise customers as cloud applications and generating additional revenues for CSPs.

Comviva BlueMarble’s speed and modularity, coupled with Microsoft Azure’s security and scalability, will enable CSPs to quickly transition to a modern, open, and secured software-based technology architecture, that they can leverage to bring new channels and services to the market. Comviva’s Compact BSS is a comprehensive, modular, secured, and future-ready solution that will enable CSPs to accelerate innovation, increase agility, rationalise costs, drive the digitisation of adjacent industries, and create sustainable impact.

Commenting on the partnership, Jason Zander, executive vice president, Strategic Missions and Technologies, Microsoft, said, “The Microsoft Cloud is playing an increasingly vital role in CSP infrastructure and operations, especially with 5G. This requires significant flexibility and agility in the business support system (BSS) layer, to truly monetise the 5G opportunity. We are pleased to see that Comviva is harnessing the power of the Microsoft Cloud to deliver innovative new experiences for the customers.”

Comviva BlueMarble Commerce integrates catalogue and order management modules with Dynamics 365, so customers can streamline their business processes and unify customer relationship management capabilities with applications that work seamlessly together on a common data platform, enabling exciting user experiences.
