Why an eTOM?
• Service Providers are driving for a common eTOM
industry framework that:
– Addresses ebusiness opportunities
– Broadens TOM to a total enterprise model
– Reflects the increased complexity in service provider
business relationships
– Evolves processes to support convergence of information
and communications services and technologies
– Highlights customer control and self-management
– Supports operations processes with strategic and
lifecycle processes
– Accommodates need for operations support processes
– Uses more systematic and accepted process
methodologies
– Provides the linkage to the NGOSS™ program, including
implementation of solutions with real products

eTOM provides the NGOSS
Business View
eTOM processes, flows and
information are input as
requirements to the NGOSS
System View
Direct Linkage from eTOM
through Shared
Information/Data and
Systems Integration Model
Feedback from the NGOSS
development cycle is used to
validate the eTOM
eTOM Team aims to work with
other Teams (e.g. BAC/SDM)
eTOM has already
participated in NGOSS ‘Proof

eTOM Business Concepts
• eTOM focus is on the customer and includes the core processes
that directly support the Customer (F, A, B)
• eTOM Framework has an Operations Support and Readiness (OSR)
grouping alongside FAB
– Back-office vs. front-office
– OSR enables FAB to be real-time and effective
• eTOM Framework has a Strategy, Infrastructure & Product (SIP)
grouping
– Strategy & Commit
– Infrastructure Lifecycle Management
– Product Lifecycle Management
• eTOM Framework integrates processes occurring within the
Enterprise with those of Partners and Suppliers
• eTOM Framework has an Enterprise Management grouping for the
remaining corporate Service Provider processes

eTOM Framework and Process
Implementation Concepts
• Separation of the Product view from the Service View
• eTOM Framework is organized in “Horizontal” and “Vertical”
process groupings, as views into the same detailed processes
• eTOM Framework positions entities with which the Enterprise
interacts
• eTOM Framework uses hierarchical decomposition as the basis of
the process modeling
• Process Elements in the eTOM Framework represent every
business process used by the Enterprise
• eTOM Framework clearly defines each Process Element
• Process Elements can be included in more than one Vertical Endto-End Process Grouping
• eTOM Processes are defined as generically as possible to support
all Products, Services and Channels that are used within the
Enterprise
11

Process Flow Concepts
To develop process flows...
• All processes are decomposed on a functional basis to
the level where process flow threads can be defined
• Each Service Provider can choose to implement their
process flows differently, with ‘mix-and-match’ from the
eTOM processes
• The eTOM process flows and decompositions are
designed to link input, process element and output, and
to provide high-level definition of information
requirements and business rules
