Three UK: Replacing Legacy Frustration with Modern Agility

With over 10 million customers and a market share of 11%, Three’s strategy is to be the best-loved brand by both customers and employees. Three concluded that complex, legacy technology was holding back its disruptive ambition.

Laying the Foundation for the Future of Communication

Three needed to modernize their BSS infrastructure in preparation for 5G. In addition to adding a new engagement layer powered by Salesforce | Vlocity, they wanted flexible rating and charging, with the agility, performance and scale to monetize any opportunity that 5G throws at them. Three wants to offer the UK’s best 5G experience, and they have built a technology stack to make it a reality.

“Simply recreating existing applications as 'digital' isn’t good enough. We believe that the technology developed by MATRIXX Software can help every operator achieve its transformation objectives.”

Susan Buttsworth, COO, 3UK

Building a Greenfield, Cloud Native IT Stack

Three’s Rebus digital transformation program leveraged the latest developments in digital and cloud technology to build a greenfield capability for the future. The design principles were to be cloud-first, to embrace automation and to force simplification. The key program objectives were:
