Oracle Takes Tekelec, Fraud Takes $6 billion and Redknee Takes an Award

This week on BillingViews:

Ed Finegold examined what Oracle’s acquisition of Tekelec means for the industry, why Netcracker is pulling off a string of contracts, such as Swisscom, Sprint, KDDI and SingTel and why good old Microsoft Excel is the analysts’ choice.

I looked at the opportunity for telecoms software vendors in the cloud, reported on the rise of Wholesale Fraud – at $6 billion, and wondered whether Social networking models are the best way to fight fraud and flatten silos at the same time.

Tony Poulos wondered whether ‘contractless’ translated to brainless as the simplest of concepts took one journalist 3,000 words to explain.

Oh, and we launched our satirical BillingViews pre-Awards Seasons Awards, based on, well, our opinion.

Enjoy the reading.

Kind regards
