4 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 4 The TM Forum SDF Program  The TMF SDF program defines the framework that supports and integrates all functions required for the lifecycle of a service delivered to a Customer, across all stakeholders in a Service Provider environment. It unifies under a common logical view service design, creation/composition, deployment, activation, provisioning, sale and campaign management, execution, operations, charging, billing and revenue management, retirement, monitoring and trouble resolution etc. to achieve the overall SDF business objectives.

18 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 18 TM Forum SDF Requirements TMF 519: SDF Business Agreement

19 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 19 TMF 519: SDF Business Agreement - Requirements  Main characteristics  The SDF Business Agreement document contains the Requirements that define the Service Delivery Framework o List of Business Objectives (19) o List of Technical Objectives (12)  SDF requirements are divided in categories (in line with Reference Model): o Requirements on SDF Infrastructure (25) o Requirements on SDF Managed Entities (9) o Requirements on SDF Management (34) o Requirements on SDF Functional Capabilities (10) o Requirements on SDF support for Customer, Supplier and Partner relationships (6)  Some info on the “process” to define the BA  Specific use cases were developed to define scenarios for the SDF and gather requirements  BA document obtained by active team commitment: more than 20 written contributions, ad hoc meetings / calls, debate and synthesis  Important remark: The SDF team employed the usage of a tool (IBM RequisitePro) for execution of the task  Deliverable ready by mid June 2008

20 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 20 Examples of SDF Objectives  Business Objectives  The SDF MUST enable reduction of cost and cycle time to translate business ideas to market offerings (in particular by an effective service lifecycle management throughout the entire ecosystem including operation support).  The SDF MUST support efficient lifecycle management of services based on composition and reuse of existing and new services with the ability to provide differentiated services to all stakeholders in a Service Provider environment.  The SDF MUST enable a Service Provider to participate in an open market of SDF Services.  Technical Objectives  The SDF MUST ensure that information associated to the elements that are manipulated by any combination of reprogramming, re-purposing and composition done statically or dynamically, is itself manipulated in ways that are coordinated and consistent with the manipulation.  The SDF MUST NOT normatively specify beyond interoperability purposes. The SDF MUST rely on the most widely used and generic technologies. when multiple alternatives exist. For a comprehensive list of objectives refer to TMF 519. Draft available on SDF CWS – Team plan is to release document by June

21 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 21 Examples of SDF Requirements  Requirements on SDF Infrastructure  The SDF Infrastructure MUST enable flexible mash up, composition and reuse of pre- packaged elements. It must be based on standard IT technology as used in other industries to leverage economy of scale and maximize support.  The SDF Infrastructure MUST enable management of services as they are reused, reprogrammed or composed.  The SDF Infrastructure MUST provide SDF Services catalogues and other repositories (e.g. metadata), which contain all the elements (e.g. existing SDF Services, their dependencies, etc.) available to build new SDF services.  Requirements on SDF Managed Resources  Every SDF Service in the SDF MUST provide a “SDF Service Management Interface” to enable exposure of all appropriate operation and management functions (such as, but not limited to: configuration, performance management, retirement, fault handling, versioning, monitoring, usage, etc.) of the SDF Service.  For the SDF to be able to manage a resource that is outside the scope of SDF, that resource MUST be exposed as a SDF Service.  Requirements on SDF Management  The SDF MUST support functionality to enable the management of the lifecycle of SDF Services.  The SDF MUST enable the configuration of specific performance parameters for SDF Services by means of the SDF Service Management Interface (SDF Service MI) (e.g. driven by customer experience).  Requirements on SDF Functional Capabilities  The SDF MUST support an explicit state model which enables the management of the lifecycle of a SDF Service.

27 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 27 General Context  Change of Communications Industry Landscape  New providers (e.g. Content) enter in the market and organizations operate using more complex business models.  Delivery of next generation services happens in a framework where the lines between Network and IT are blurred.  IT expands its footprint from supporting services to becoming part of the service to customer.  Customers / end Users have greater expectations for: o blending existing and new services o supply of services anywhere, anytime, and through any chosen access means.  Increasing pressure for efficient and effective Service Management.  Necessity for near-zero touch of business processes for delivering “next-gen services” by integrating existing systems (both for Telco / non-Telco SPs).  Need to create composite service marketplace across industry sectors that also need to be managed & monetized.  Service Providers need interoperability and agreed levels of compatibility across Service Delivery Platforms (SDPs).

28 Copyright © TM Forum, 2007 All Rights Reserved. 28 TM Forum’s response: Service Delivery Framework The TM Forum launched the Service Delivery Framework (SDF) programme to address the industry challenge of producing an environment for the management of Next Generation Services. SDF supports and integrates all aspects in the lifecycle of “next-gen services” delivered to a customer, across all the stakeholders, in an integrated Service Provider environment. SDF has the objective to unify under a common logical view all the functions to support the service lifecycle: conceptualization, design, deployment, activation (execution), operation, retirement. SDF operation is based upon a defined Reference Model, which itself is based upon SOA principles. SDF impacts Management specification for SDF will be realised through updates and additions to existing TM Forum artefacts (Business Process Framework, Information Framework etc.). New specifications will be created by TM Forum (or liaised with other SDOs / Foras) SDF will have impact on “new” B/OSS systems design and development. Strong liaisons with other Industry Groups has been established in order to share the SDF vision / link into related work in these Groups.
