MarketPOWER™, LLC will begin 2009 with a bold new look thanks to the launch of its new website. MarketPOWER’s Jeff Cotrupe announced the new site in a message to the firm’s customers, partners, suppliers and associates the third week of December.

The MarketPOWER home page describes how some striking structures from different parts of the world helped to inspire the move.

MarketPOWER, LLC presents webcast on SDPs: “E Unum Pluribus (Out of one, many)”

Gallery

Jeff Cotrupe of MarketPOWER™, LLC today presented a webcast on behalf of TechTarget entitled “Service Delivery Platforms (SDPs): E Unum Pluribus (Out of one, many).” Cotrupe was joined by moderator Kate Gerwig, Site Editor, TechTarget/ SearchTelecom.com. Cotrupe discussed how service providers are launching new service offerings to try to become everyone’s “friend in the digital age,” yet continue to do so via overlay networks and overlay OSS. One answer to this problem is the service delivery platform (SDP), which slashes the time, cost and risk of introducing and integrating new services into an operator’s existing network and services fabric. Cotrupe discussed what SDPs are, what they can do, why they are important, how some service providers are starting to deploy them and the results they are obtaining. This webcast, and other webcasts/podcasts/worshops/articles by Cotrupe and MarketPOWER, are available here.

Gallery

Jeff Cotrupe of MarketPOWER™, LLC has been selected by Virgo Publishing to lead a panel at Billing & OSS World, 14-16 April 2009 in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Virgo and MarketPOWER are in the process of finalizing a topic from among several choices provided but it is likely to center on service delivery platforms (SDPs). SDPs are subject of renewed and growing interest in today’s markets as service providers struggle to meet user demand for an ever-widening array of innovative services, partly by harnessing the wave of content (and content providers). SDPs provide the answer on both counts. Cotrupe led a groundbreaking panel on the revenue operations center (“the ROC”) at Billing & OSS World, April 2008 in Chicago, IL, USA, with panelists Verizon, Subex, ATS and Primal Solutions. He also served as a judge for the Billing & OSS World 2008 Excellence Awards and was instrumental in selecting the finalists in the Service Assurance award category.
