Everything You Need to Manage Your Product Lifecycles

Part of our Order Care Suite, Catalog Management is an integrated solution that defines, introduces, manages and retires product and service offerings across distributed service provider environments.
Working With Your Existing BSS/OSS Architecture
Created to accelerate product rollout, Catalog Management facilitates rapid product definition, design, test and launch. It works seamlessly with existing BSS/OSS architecture, applications and data repositories, so you won’t need to make any changes to your back-end systems.

Instead, it synchronizes and federates data in real time, providing a shared 360o view of the information you need to drive product lifecycle management.
