What is mobinomics?

We develop and implement telco operational support systems (OSS).

We have over a decade of experience in solving problems in fixed and mobile service delivery as and when they arise.

Who

Mobinomics brings people, systems science, software development and telecoms seamlessly together into one team.

MARK ACTON: MANAGING DIRECTOR

Mark founded Mobinomics in 2005 with the vision of creating a niche telecom-software business with a focus on Telco Operational Support Systems.

GUIDO ZSILAVECZ: EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

With over 20 years experience in software development in a telecoms environment, Guido has a deep understanding of complex workflow systems and the entire software development process.

Why

We understand that OSS is as important as the network when it comes to enabling seamless service delivery.

We have the right combination of niche domain knowledge, technical ability, experience and risk tolerance to define and solve the challenges that emerge in complex operational delivery environments such as today's telco.

How

Complexity is not the enemy. It is how you work with it. While short-cuts may bring quick relief, they cannot deliver systems with long-term sustainability.

We don't assume that we know. But we know that with the right team, asking the right questions, we can work it out. We work with our clients and our extensive network of associates to assemble the skills, perspectives and experiences the project needs to be successful.

Mobinomics embraces the inherent complexity of orchestrating a variety of stakeholder perspectives and constantly changing environments. To learn more head down to our roots and explore our thinking about 'fluid coherence'.

Professional Services

Our professional services practice provides a niche focus on custom OSS design, build and maintain; transformation of complex legacy systems to next generation paradigms; and implementation of products into complex end-to-end ecosystems.

Mobinomics provides Telkom, a South African converged network operator, with professional services for a software suite in their OSS layer. The initial project, which began in 2006, was a consulting engagement for the design recovery of their mission critical proprietary OSS software suite. After this Mobinomics was appointed as a professional services provider to work with Telkom in a collaborative way performing embedded professional services to fulfill projects, change requests and maintenance on the software suite. We are also involved in projects associated the with transformation to next generation systems.

What we believe

In this section you can explore and learn about our company's approach to designing and building systems and managing complex software projects, some of the academia that sits behind it and how you might experience it when you work with us.

Your experience

When you work with Mobinomics you will experience us working fluidity within your operational environments as they are in reality, not as they appear in PowerPoint presentations. We actively work towards ensuing that all stakeholders are harmonized and that when the inevitable conflicts and turbulences arise that they are engaged with in a productive way - we navigate between the opposite poles of rigidity and chaos.

Getting real

Over the years we have experienced approaches that emphasise processes, structures and specialist skills the way of traditional system builders and integrators. These approaches break down in the face of complex technology projects because they don't match the spaghetti junction density of the systems themselves nor the context in which they are located. It also treats humans as resources that can be managed in the same way as tech components.

Mobinomics employs a different set of principles that allow for both change and stability and look beyond old models of thinking.

Being Human

We believe that being human enables true collaboration. There is no value in leaving ourselves at the front door when we enter the workplace. Listening deeply, allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, and dropping stereotypes is what builds trust - the real coupling of teams.

Map is not the territory

We believe context cannot be ignored. This means we don't blindly apply off-the-shelf consulting frameworks or imported best practices.

Transdisciplinarity

We believe that retaining focus on both ourselves (the nature of the observer) AND the things observed, allows a true transcendence of limits imposed by disciplinary thinking.

The Operating System Layer

We have distilled our thinking on the importance and function of the operating system layer in this foundation essay published in April 2015.

Aslam Khan on co-operation

We discovered Aslam at Agile Africa 2013 - and we immediately recognised that he was walking the path less travelled when it came to appreciating the difference between "software methodology and process" and bringing our humanity into software teams.

Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future

From as early as 2006, it has been recognized that traditional approaches to managing large scale software systems are limited. In this book, Ultra-Large-Scale Systems: The Software Challenge of the Future, the authors advocate an alternative foundational view that of socio technical ecosystems.

Thinking... its so important

For a concise dummies guide to common sense and the difficulties associated with thinking about complexity from a traditional scientific perspective, we have found no clearer articulation on the fundamental importance of context and the dangers of de-contextualisation.
