Yesterday the world learnt that DGIT, amongst a field of major vendors has made the undertaking and signed the TMForum’s API adoption manifesto. The differentiator for DGIT is that their product Telflow is built on TM Forum APIs, so signing the manifesto is not so much an undertaking but a logical step. With the APIs an integral part of the architecture, Telflow can fully exploit the dynamic capabilities of the APIs.
In Telflow, the APIs can be used to directly access all the Telflow functionalitIES, in fact most of the Telflow Web user interface uses the APIs and much of the integration with Telflow in the field is done with these APIs. DGIT Systems has a number of tier one telecommunications carriers already using these APIs at industrial scale.
Yesterday’s announcement follows the adoption of the TM Forum’s suite of Open APIs for digital service management by nine of the world’s largest communications service providers (Axiata, Bharti Airtel, BT, China Mobile, China Unicom, NTT-Group, Orange, Telefónica and Vodafone), TM Forum, the global industry association for digital business, announced that eight leading technology ecosystem participants including DGIT Systems, (and EnterpriseWeb, Ericsson, Huawei, IBM, BearingPoint / Infonova, Oracle, and UXP Systems) have officially endorsed TM Forum’s suite of Open APIs for digital service management.
