STOCKHOLM, February 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalRoute today announced that KT, South Korea's largest landline operator and mobile service provider, has selected DigitalRoute's MediationZone(R) as part of its ongoing IT transformation project also known as the BIT (Business & Information System Transformation) project.
KT announced in November 2010 that it is carrying out the BIT project in order to transform itself into a global super-best business by introducing world-best work processes via the innovation of its IT system, the backbone of its business management.
The BIT project is designed to reform all its IT platforms (except networks) including management information, sales, facilities, and services. It aims to upgrade its business support platforms, as well as its work processes, to the world's best level. As a part of this project, KT will replace its existing mediation systems with MediationZone.
"MediationZone is a fundamental component of the transformed Billing and Revenue management processes at KT and will serve as a central point of integration between the network and the business support systems. MediationZone will also provide functions that facilitate the migration of data from the existing environment," said Jae Lee, VP, Biz & IT Transformation at KT.
"Telco IT environments are undergoing rapid change as a result of the recent years' technological advances, development in consumer behavior and the competitive situation on the market. The need for a consolidated platform to manage ever increasing data volumes is stronger than ever before. The market forces are aligning to put mediation functions at the center stage and the agreement with KT is a testimony that we have the best mediation technology that the market has to offer," said Jan Karlsson, CEO at DigitalRoute.
