Infosys Wins Outstanding Catalyst-CurateFX Ecosystem Design Award at TM Forum 2018

Awarded for demonstrating the disruptive potential of Blockchain for CSPs and commitment to the future of the industry

Infosys, alongside other contributing members, has won an award for ‘Outstanding Catalyst- CurateFx Ecosystem Design’ at this year’s TM Forum Digital Transformation World 2018 in Nice, France. Blockchain Unleashed, the wining catalyst, went beyond the hype of Blockchain to demonstrate the disruptive potential of the technology for CSPs in eliminating the use of ‘middle-man’ entities in telco value chains. The team was honoured for their extensive ecosystem modelling around five use cases. Infosys had an instrumental role to play in demonstrating the disruptive potential of blockchain for communications services providers (CSPs).

The team utilised CurateFx, a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) tool co-developed by TM Forum and Tr3dent, a TM Forum member company, to design extensive ecosystem models around five use cases.

Catalysts are developed in collaboration between TM Forum members, incorporating best practices and standards to resolve today’s challenges faced by communications services providers (CSPs). Winning projects are recognised with awarded to those teams demonstrating outstanding work.

Catalysts are rapid-fire, proof-of-concept projects connecting service providers, technology suppliers and global enterprises to create innovative solutions to common industry challenges. There are two key roles in the projects: the catalyst champion, which is a company seeking a solution to a business problem; and participants, companies that provide their expertise to solve the challenge.
