Product Catalog Solution
Product Catalog Solution (PCS) is primarily designed to take a role of Catalogue Master Data Management component (Catalog MDM) in telco environments or any other environment with heterogeneous application landscape. As such, it is designed to consolidate catalogue data from various sources. In the process of data harmonisation it is ensuring data integrity through various mechanisms, like data cleansing, de-duplication, validation and rule enforcements. PCS covers both technical as well as commercial aspects of catalogue data. It provides a unified, single-point-of-view of organization’s offerings. Its advanced web based user interface allows easy catalogue management. It has the ability to distribute and serve data to any kind of target system in both synchronous and asynchronous fashion. PCS can be considered as a key enabler for Product Catalog-centric Business Support System architecture.
Web based user interfacePCS features sophisticated web based user interface based on Ajax technology, thus combining best of both worlds; the smooth look and feel of traditional thin client on one hand and accessibility and installation-free user interface on the other. It's designed with the idea in mind to present complex catalogue structures and operations in abstract and transparent manner, with possibility to drill-down entity information to the last detail when needed.
Integration capabilitiesPCS catalogue data model adheres to TM Forum’s Information framework (SID) guidelines, assuring easier integration with other SID compliant source and target systems. More information on TM Forum Information framework (SID) can be found here: http://wwww.tmforum.org
