Oracle Wins Revenue Management Award

Billing & OSS World magazine, like seemingly everyone else, hands out awards for excellence. Like everyone else, they get judged by a lot of experts and the competition is supposed to be really tough and there are lots and lots of very good entrants. Ho-hum. I hope no telco is stupid enough to pick their supplier based on an award handed out this way. Reading the list of winners at the magazine’s site, and the press release from Oracle, I am no wiser as to what Oracle did, why they won or how the decision was made. That tells me everything I need to know about this award and why Oracle won it. If a supplier cannot describe in plain language what their product does, any why you should buy it, then sensible customers should look elsewhere. Presumably Oracle did a better job when explaining their product and its merits to the panel. That or they paid the biggest bribes.
