B/OSS World Poll: RA in the Cloud

There is a fascinating new poll from the people who write Billing & OSS World Magazine. It asks “should you trust cloud-based revenue assurance?” So far, the results say more than half would trust cloud-based RA in general. Even more interestingly, a quarter say they would not trust cloud-based RA normally, but would trust it if offered by Indian vendor Subex. This is a reference to Subex’s new ROCcloud offering. Only 16% have been negative no matter who is the supplier.

What do you think? You can find the poll here.

Perhaps, as might be expected with an internet-based poll, there is one possible answer that is missing: “RA in the cloud would be fine, but my internet connection is not good enough…!” But I guess not many telcos would want to admit that.
