TM Forum, the industry association driving digital transformation through collaboration, announced the winners of its 2022 Excellence Awards during the first day of the Digital Transformation World (DTW) global event.
Axiata Digital Labs (ADL), an innovative digital transformation solution provider, was announced as the recipient of the 2022 Excellence Award in the Cloud-native IT & networks for the entry ‘Axonect Hybrid/Multi cloud orchestrator to enable Axiata Digital Transformation’. ADL developed the Axonect Hybrid Cloud Orchestrator using learnings from the TM Forum Catalyst program and by aligning the solution with TM Forum Open Digital Architecture (ODA) and Open APIs. The goal of the platform was to facilitate rapid, yet sustainable, cloud adoption in the Axiata Group Berhad operating companies (OpCos) to accelerate their journey to become digital telcos.
Since 2007, TM Forum’s Excellence Awards have recognized the world’s leading companies for innovative achievements spanning digital transformation, business and IT agility, customer centricity, cross-industry partnering and collaboration, and product and service innovation across six themes.
This year the 70+ entries received were judged by a panel of 22 independent industry experts. As a neutral, non-profit organization, TM Forum ensures that the awards are wholly impartial, celebrating important examples of industry success and delivering valuable peer recognition.
“We’re delighted that TM Forum recognized ADL’s efforts in enabling Axiata Group OpCos to accelerate their cloud adoption journey,” said Namal Jayathilake, Chief Technology Officer, Axiata Digital Labs. “The Axonect Hybrid/Multi Cloud Orchestrator drew heavily from past TM Forum Catalysts, ODA and Open API standards to deliver a product that helps telcos maximize resource utilization, reduce TTM and improve the overall experience with the latest cloud technologies. We are especially grateful to Celcom Axiata, Dialog Axiata, Ncell Axiata and XL Axiata for continuing to support and collaborate with ADL as we showcase our enterprise solutions on a global stage.”
