Sky Brasil Selects Oracle Communications Solutions to Support its Rapidly Growing Business

ORACLE OPENWORLD, San Francisco, Calif. – October 4, 2011

 

News Facts

Sky Brasil, one of the largest digital-to-home (DTH) pay-TV operators in Latin America, has selected Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management to help it provide more sophisticated and differentiated services to its rapidly growing subscriber base.
A subsidiary of DIRECTV, Sky Brasil offers the largest selection of high-definition content in Brazil.
The company’s legacy IT system presented technical limitations that prevented Sky Brasil from handling its growing influx of subscribers.  In addition, Sky Brasil required a solution with a dynamic product catalogue to provide its customers more complex services.
Sky Brasil will implement Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management as a scalable, flexible and convergent platform to support immediate introduction of new offers that can be consolidated on a single bill. The application will enable Sky Brasil to rapidly design, deliver and monetize creative service offers/bundles and deliver a wide range of services based on customer or market driven conditions.
The flexible, integrated Oracle solution will also enable Sky Brasil to:
Converge customers’ services on one monthly bill
Improve operational efficiency
Reduce cost and implementation time by leveraging Oracle Application Integration Architecture, a rich portfolio of pre-built, extensible, SOA-based integration accelerators
Complementary applications selected by Sky Brasil include Oracle Communications Automatic Service Activation Program (ASAP), to enable rapid introduction of new services, and Oracle’s Siebel Dynamic Catalogue to efficiently integrate product selection and configuration to accelerate service delivery to customers.
In addition, Sky Brasil will use Oracle SOA Suite to extend the Oracle solution to integrate with some of its existing systems.
Sky Brasil recently began this multi-product implementation.
