Many Communications Service Providers (CSPs) looking to transform their Business Support Systems (BSS) want a future-proof architecture that works with existing investments and supports multiple strategies going forward. Cognizant’s Configurable Solution Framework (CSF) or Reference Architecture, does this by conforming to industry and IT standards, enabling loose coupling and leveraging IT reuse concepts—without being tied to a specific vendor.
With our Reference Architecture, you get access to the industry’s recognized best‑in‑breed Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) that are preconfigured with real‑world use cases needed to reduce risk, time to implement, cost to implement, time to market and time to deliver services.
Cognizant’s Configurable Solution Framework (CSF) consists of a subset of components from our Business Support Systems (BSS) Reference Architecture (RA) that enables operators to realize desired and tangible business outcomes.
