OSS-Integrators Inc.: Part of the DeployPartners Group Service Assurance Expertise to meet Enterprise Goals
Ari Gurewitz, Founder & Managing DirectorTelecommunications is a constantly evolving environment with newer technologies and business models. In today's packet-switched, content-driven, multi-network, and multi-technology business world, telecom service providers not only need to build high-speed communication networks but also ensure that connectivity is delivered in an efficient fashion. Supporting VoIP, high-speed data transfer, Unified Communication, video conferencing, and the lineup of various multimedia apps play a big part in this equation. As telecom companies roll out best-of-breed networks and services, they need efficient operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) to go along with them. OSS-Integrators, a U.S. based company and part of the Deploy Partners’ Group, is vested to address this need by leveraging the suite of IBM IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions to help customers capitalize on their existing infrastructure, add additional services when needed, and
become more efficient with their bandwidth and network. “We specialize in design, implementation, training and support, and sales of IBM ITSM products and solutions,” says Ari Gurewitz, Founder and Managing Director, OSS-Integrators.
IBM’s ITSM Pillar is a unified platform of software products designed for automation of network management, availability and performance of network infrastructure, applications and business services. Being an IBM Focus Partner for ITSM, OSS Integrators along with DeployPartners with their Gold Accreditation leverage the platform to streamline network processes for the provisioning and activation of new services within the existing network infrastructure. This speeds up the time to market for value-added services, facilitates the delivery of converged voice, video and data services, integrates service applications and connects backend support systems. The company helps significantly reduce network outages, degradation, and mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) which measures the reliability and availability of network and operations infrastructure. OSS-Integrators and Deploy Partners offer end-to-end visualization of the entire network infrastructure along with root cause analysis and the ability to address potential failures before they happen.

The company not only implements Tivoli products but also supports and maintains the whole platform along with providing training to their clients. In addition, OSSI along with DeployPartners support their clients throughout the project lifecycle and create roadmaps and data programs to help them consistently evaluate their operational effectiveness.
