Managing the optimised user life cycle

Telecommunications operators offer a wide range of services to their clients, such as mobile internet, voice chat, voice messaging, video, etc. The supply of services to clients and the invoicing require an operational support system (OSS) and a basic support system (BSS) to be managed. These systems should be used and maintained in a secure and trackable way to ensure revenue growth and service standards for the end user.

Significant savings using the TMF standards

Telecoms operators should respond rapidly to technological changes and their clients' need to conquer new markets. Consequently, telecoms operators need to be agile, implementing new services and new applications in a trustworthy, reliable way.

Evidian Identity & Access Manager supplies automated and trackable provisioning of user accounts and access rights to the BSS and OSS applications, using a standard TMF615 user management interface. The solution offers optimised and reliable management of user accounts and access rights for internal and external operations and maintenance, required by staff who need to access the critical BSS and OSS systems.

Securing access to the company's critical applications

The solution provides a fully integrated approvals workflow, through which end users can request additional access rights. The access rights are automatically granted, after approval by the authorised persons, such as line managers, application owners, security officers, etc.

Simplifying and securing access to the company's applications

Evidian Enterprise SSO provides simple and secure access to the company's critical applications. The solution fully manages passwords so that users no longer have to memorise them. Evidian Enterprise SSO automates user logins for all applications, whether internal or in the cloud (private, public, hybrid).

Evidian Enterprise SSO automatically manages password changes for all applications, based on the company's security policy. User access to applications is simplified, while improving company security and compliance with regulations.

Improving user productivity with a self-service system

Evidian Enterprise SSO improves user productivity because the self-service system allows users to reinitialise their passwords and smartcard pincodes in full security, without having to contact the user helpdesk.

Improving call centre productivity

Call centres need to access various applications to serve their customers, including internal applications (e.g. customer databases) and external applications (e.g. for tracking parcels). Every day, each call centre agent spends considerable time identifying themselves to access these applications – this is unproductive time that telecoms operators are paying for.

With Evidian solutions, call centre staff can access their applications immediately – no need to enter usernames and passwords. And access rights are set up for newly recruited agents from day one.
