Top Customer Reviews
From those 3: 2 should never see the daylight. The third one explains solid basics, processes taking place in billing systems etc. This is the book. In my opinion for begginers and intermediate people in billing.
Anyway the best choice here.
The book seems to have been written for contemplative bosses completely disconnected from operations and who need to build powerpoint slides to tell what his team is up to.
For technical folks who are in the telecoms industry, the book by its academic and disconnected approach is surely a boring read. For a software shop like ours, needing to build billing support tools, this book is up to now completely useless.
