RICHARDSON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Monolith Software, the leading provider of next generation, unified service assurance solutions, has been named as one of the ten OSS/BSS companies to watch in 2014 by Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan.
Each January, the Stratecast team compiles a list of ten companies that the industry should pay attention to, and Monolith Software has been profiled in this report because it "has some street credentials and thought leadership in this area [unified service assurance], and because of the wide open opportunity in service assurance -- triggered by the growth of traffic volumes, the variety of applications and devices, and new market entrants among service providers."
"There are many reasons for picking the companies we do, but it is reserved for those that show significant levels of innovation and that focus on business and operations challenges the industry now faces," said Tim McElligott, senior consulting analyst global OSS/BSS strategy at Stratecast. "Monolith Software's focus on unified service assurance fits nicely with the overall trend in the service assurance space, which is a shift toward platform, or unified approaches, to monitoring and assuring network services. We selected Monolith for its vision and ability to lead this shift through its own product innovations."
The Global OSS/BSS 10 to Watch report, published in February, showcases Monolith as a company dedicated to customer experience management, operational efficiency, and increasing time-to-market speed. The key way Monolith is accomplishing this is through consolidation of monitoring tools and normalization of data across event and fault management, performance, and topology for converged services.
"We are thrilled to be included in Stratecast's 10 to Watch report for 2014," said Bill Cannon, CEO of Monolith Software. "Service providers face two core business challenges: customer experience management and operational efficiency. And, while identifying these challenges is simple, providing solutions is not. We know that customers' experience cannot be evaluated based on limited data from a single service. Experiences must be captured and evaluated across all services, across time, and across location. This unified service assurance is what Monolith Software's AssureNow platform is designed to provide."
