Lifecycle Software has entered into a collaboration with Microsoft that will see the company leverage the Microsoft Cloud across its solutions, enabling some of the biggest mobile operators to provide better services to customers.

Based in the UK, Lifecycle Software has been breaking new ground in the telecommunications industry for more than 25 years. From billing to SIM provisioning to IoT, they have been supporting a wide range of partners to provide their services to millions of users and devices.

Lifecycle Software will use Microsoft Azure to offer high levels of speed, resilience, security and reliability in its Business Support Systems (BSS) and charging solutions. The telecommunications giant will also utilize Azure to support Lifecycle’s most important applications, including BSS, CCS and Event Intelligence.

Michael Wignall, Azure business lead at Microsoft UK, said: “Given the critical nature of Lifecycle’s BSS and charging solutions to telecoms operators across the globe, ensuring resilience, speed, security and reliability is vital to building and maintaining customer trust. By moving to Azure, Lifecycle can ensure that telecoms companies can unlock true innovation and develop secure and responsive solutions that support their customers’ changing media habits.”

Kelvin Chaffer, CEO at Lifecycle said: “The relationship with Microsoft and with its cloud, Azure, will enable us to keep our software future-ready by design, helping our customers with billing and charging, maintaining a competitive edge and setting them up for sustained growth. This will ultimately help them to increase revenue per user.”
