WeDo Technologies launches RAID 7.0 and sets new global benchmark for revenue assurance and fraud management software

RAID 7.0 to combat profit pitfalls of next generation telecoms

Lisbon / London / Washington - February 7th, 2013 - Today WeDo Technologies, a worldwide leader in Revenue and Business Assurance, has announced the latest major release of its proven software suite, RAID. This launch coincides with WeDo Technologies' 12th anniversary, after the company was founded on February 7th 2001.

The pace of change affecting Communication Service Providers (CSPs) is only set to increase over the next few years. Changes are coming from all different angles and include new business models, new network technologies, radically new subscriber offerings or new charging, billing and customer care methodologies. Add to this the fact that CSPs are also faced with making changes and information systems migrations quickly in order to remain competitive and unfortunately this environment creates an opportunity for profit pitfalls.

This new major release, launched three years after RAID 6.0 and resulting from a continuous high R&D investment, sets a new global benchmark that the company believes will have a major impact on the market.

  • RAID 7.0 delivers a complete ENTERPRISE BUSINESS ASSURANCE SOFTWARE SUITE designed to serve the revenue assurance and fraud management departments - areas where the product has become a global leader since 2009 - but, at the same time, also extend it to other different control functions and departments such as enterprise risk management, internal auditing, compliance, security or management control, thus supporting true Enterprise Business Assurance.

  • Bridging analytics from various departments, RAID 7.0 also provides the capability to visually link strategic objectives by mapping risk indicators to KPIs running on RAID available through its BALANCED SCORECARD FRAMEWORK AND BUSINESS SENSORS, helping managers, CFOs and other C-Level executives to make more informed decisions to continually drive and monitor the business.

  • With RAID 7.0, USER EMPOWERMENT reaches a new groundbreaking level bringing a radically new interface to improve how business users of all levels and departments interact with it by delivering software that is revolutionary but at the same time easy to use.

  • WeDo Technologies was the first Revenue Assurance vendor to bring MOBILITY to this space over a year ago with an iPhone app version of the RAID dashboard. RAID 7.0 expands this approach by broadening the dashboard capability to other mobile devices and tablets by making use of its new Responsive Web Design principle. It provides dashboards that turn complex monitoring processes into simple and visually enhanced experiences by tracking, analyzing and presenting data in a digestible and illustrative form, improving efficiency and productivity while on the move and saving businesses both time and money.

  • This new major release also extends the product built-in business logic and adds NEW FAST DEPLOYMENT PACKAGES that address specific industry challenges while making it up to 25% faster to deploy. These packages have been developed in line with industry standards and best practices making it even more flexible to support and integrate with new services and technologies.

"In a world where massive amounts of raw data are readily available but where actionable information is rare, making sense of data is vital. With RAID, we knew we were starting from a very high ground but we wanted to raise the bar even higher. So we redesigned RAID to empower users, to provide them with even more powerful tools to analyze and shape their business data, to visualize and extract the value of data" commented João Resende, Vice President of Product Development, WeDo Technologies. "We believe RAID 7.0 is a huge breakthrough for the WeDo Technologies' team and its customers. RAID 7.0 will provide CSPs with best in class software to address the ever increasing number of challenges that they face on a daily basis such as LTE, machine to machine or mobile money Business Assurance challenges, to ultimately improve their bottom line and customer service", Resende concluded.

WeDo Technologies will once again be attending the GSM Association's Mobile World Congress from 25th-28th February. The company will be in Hall 7 on stand 7B94 and will be demonstrating this new major release of its Business Assurance RAID software.

IoT is rapidly changing the way enterprises are using data to improve business decision-making. In order to derive business value, organizations must unlock insights from the data gathered and then act on these. In their session at @ThingsExpo, Eric Hoffman, Vice President at EastBanc Technologies, and Peter Shashkin, Head of Development Department at EastBanc Technologies, discussed how one organization leveraged IoT, cloud technology and data analysis to improve customer experiences and effi...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
