This week on BillingViews:
Ed Finegold examined what Oracle’s acquisition of Tekelec means for the industry, why Netcracker is pulling off a string of contracts, such as Swisscom, Sprint, KDDI and SingTel and why good old Microsoft Excel is the analysts’ choice.
I looked at the opportunity for telecoms software vendors in the cloud, reported on the rise of Wholesale Fraud – at $6 billion, and wondered whether Social networking models are the best way to fight fraud and flatten silos at the same time.

Enjoy the reading.
