iconectiv Joins SAP HANA Partner Ecosystem

By Ken Briodagh February 27, 2018

At Mobile World Congress (MWC), SAP and iconectiv have recently announced a partnership to bring cloud-based telecom services that are designed to enable enhanced network management and asset monetization into the SAP HANA partner ecosystem.

SAP HANA is a database and application development platform designed for organizations with extensive IT infrastructures leveraging large volumes of data to accelerate business processes, deliver more business intelligence, and simplify IT environments. Through its partner program, SAP seeks to add flexible, industry-specific expertise to its platform that enables its customers to develop the best possible solution to meet their needs.

In this latest addition to the iconectiv TruPartner Program, the company will provide service providers and related telecom firms using the SAP HANA platform with solutions that enhance database management, maximize network efficiencies, decrease operational costs, and reduce risk by providing highly accurate and actionable network and numbering data and analysis.

“SAP brings a global brand presence, finance and enterprise resource planning (ERP) expertise, and an established telecom sales network to greatly expand our customer base as well as simplify the integration of our services through the SAP HANA platform,” said Alex Berry, EVP, Information Solutions Business Unit, iconectiv. “With the ongoing struggle for service providers to maintain data and operational integrity during this era of digital transformation, we see a tremendous opportunity to expand our services to new regions and new customers. This relationship is a key milestone in the iconectiv TruPartner Program.”

iconectiv has added several companies to its Partner Program recently, including Infutor, CSG Partners and West, who are using iconectiv’s trusted data to ensure the integrity of mobile numbers in their customer messaging solutions. iconectiv has also announced a strategic collaboration with iBasis, a leading international voice carrier and provider of data services and solutions for mobile operators, to reduce international telecom fraud.

“Partners like iconectiv are very important as they complement and extend our portfolio as SAP thrives to accompany communications service providers in their digital transformation journey,” said Stephan Gatien, GM, Telecoms Industry Business, SAP. “iconectiv’s recognized telecom expertise and authoritative data perfectly augments our industry relevant partner ecosystem resulting in superior business value for our joint customers.”
