NAAP Global Solutions, a provider of telecommunications asset management services, recently announced that its NAAP Software has been selected by Digicel for their operation in Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guiana. The solution will help Digicel’s (News - Alert) telecom operators to improve operational efficiency and reduce costs.
The NAAP Software is designed to provide consistent and accurate network/asset data remotely and in real time, allowing telecommunications operators to take control of its assets. By being able to track assets from procurement, to installation, to repair centers, to warehousing. NAAP hopes to put carriers in a position to trigger an imminent information convergence across the company that will translate into information efficiencies, prompt decision making, and operational savings. NAAP Software is a pure Java web-server application. According to the company, this means it is inherently secure, extremely scalable (J2EE) and easy to develop in and maintain.
Donato Van Splunteren, vice president of sales of NAAP Global Solutions, said, "In Digicel we identified a real need and we positioned NAAP as the unified solution that will give them visibility and control over their assets. Upon project completion, Digicel will have an operational tool that will enable the company to have a consolidated view of assets that are deployed in distant geographical territories, simplifying and empowering the decision making process. Furthermore, NAAP offers flexibility: customers have the choice between two business models of NAAP (Purchase Licenses or Software as a Service). The implementation is modular and it offers professional services in order to assist the organization in its own implementation, and the ability to customize and develop customer-specific solutions. Once we are done with the implementation, Digicel will have all asset related information readily available to be useful to them from day one.”
The database that fuels NAAP Software is InterSystems Caché, a scalable object database that provides high speed transactional processing. Intersystems was named one of the leaders for "composite-applications" by the Gartner Group in June 2007 (together with SAP, Oracle (News - Alert) and IBM), and thus the database has the ability to integrate into other existing and/or legacy databases in order to get/exchange existing data.
