Oracle accelerates DTH services in India


MUMBAI: Oracle announced that Sun Direct Pvt Ltd has implemented Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management to provide real-time, billing for the company’s next generation Direct-to-Home (DTH) services.


Sun Direct selected Oracle based on its convergent multi-service capabilities and proven real-time scalability allowing it to consolidate billing operations, enable powerful new service offerings and improve visibility into customer information across services. Sun Direct worked with Siemens Information Systems Limited (SISL), a member of the Oracle Partner Network, to complete the implementation.


Sun Direct, chief operating officer, Tony DeSilva said, “In making the move from a content provider to a service provider, we needed to ensure that we had the necessary technology infrastructure in place to bill for services quickly and accurately. With Oracle, we have implemented a next-generation solution in just months – accelerating our ability to rapidly deliver new services and deliver a superior customer experience. This is a milestone in redefining the economics of Direct-to-Home service delivery in India.”


Oracle was chosen over competing offerings due to the applications’ functionality and the proven delivery capabilities of Siemens Information Systems Limited. With Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management, Sun Direct is able to accelerate service delivery and reduce time-to-market of new services and enhance operational efficiency, all with a predictable cost of ownership.


Oracle Communications, vice president for Japan and Asia Pacific, Dr. Weiming Li stated, “In Asia-Pacific, the sophisticated communications environment is changing rapidly due to new entrants and market consolidation. Service providers must stand out from the crowd in order to remain competitive. Oracle is pleased to help Sun Direct transform and expand its business – enabling the company to rapidly deliver attractive new services and high quality customer care.”
