Hansen Advances Hansen Catalog for a 5G Future
Toronto, Canada – 25 September 2019 – Hansen today announces the advancement of Hansen Catalog, formerly Sigma Catalog and the enterprise commercial product and life-cycle management application of the Hansen Create-Sell-Deliver Portfolio. Hansen Catalog is a centralised product, service and resource catalog, which provides a single point of truth in order to eliminate inconsistencies across the enterprise.
The advent of 5G technology and the Internet of Things will give rise to the creation of an unprecedented amount of data. With the roll-out of next-generation networks set to transform the way in which operators create, sell and deliver digital services, the ability to interact with ever-increasing volumes of product and service data will be critical. To meet the requirements of communications services providers (CSPs), Hansen Catalog 8.0 includes user-experience enhancements and brings new capabilities to Hansen’s core catalog product, offering additional features for service providers as they look to capitalise on opportunities driven by 5G and virtualised networks.
It is accompanied by Hansen Catalog Services 3.1, which brings additional rule validation and enforcement extensions, allowing more complex offers to be configured without the need for additional CPQ or order management system logic. Furthermore, with Hansen Catalog 8.0, all configuration tooling is now fully web-based.
Robert Hingston, Vice President of Products, Hansen, commented: “A 5G-centric marketplace is set to change the game as far as the create-sell-deliver process is concerned – and CSPs need to be equipped to not only handle new forms of complexity, but also tap into the opportunities that such technology offers. At Hansen, we are attuned to the needs of the market, with the continuous evolution of our products being informed through mutually beneficial interactions with our valued customers. With the latest iteration of Hansen Catalog, we are enabling CSPs to capitalise on the potential of next-generation technologies.”
