TM Forum Innovation Award 2010 Winner.
Ontology was central to BT's Product and Systems Migration Project entry in this year's prestigious TM Forum Excellence Awards 2010. The award entry, "Semantic Toolset to Optimise Business Transformations", was based on the cutting-edge work of a team from both BT and Ontology Systems.
"This win shows the ingenuity of the team and the importance of tools such as Ontology to tackle complex problems in a new and exciting way. Our solution revealed benefits to the planning stage including 30%-80% cost reduction, improved data cleansing and a trusted one-truth model, and importantly shorter planning times which bring forward the ultimate benefits of any migration exercise. This comfortably surpassed all the other manual- and tool-based methods attempted."
