Toronto, Canada – 25 November 2019 – Hansen today announced Hansen Catalog (formerly Sigma Catalog) has been awarded the full Frameworx (eTom and SID) 18.5 conformance certification by TM Forum.

Achieving this certification demonstrates Hansen’s commitment to providing CSPs with industry-leading, standards-based solutions that enable true transformation of product management. Many of our customers specify and expect conformance to TM Forum Frameworx and other industry standards. Hansen helped pioneer the process of Frameworx conformance certification and views it as an integral part of our product development process.”
