    Hi all,

    I've searched the postings & library & other resource areas but I can't find any obvious URL (& I can't imagine it would be hidden) to an existing marketplace offering applications that cover specific pieces of the TAM and have and/or use tmForum's OpenAPIs.  I understand there is an evolving Catalyst project about this, but I'm looking for an actual, live, production marketplace.  Or even a listing of applications & their references to the TAM would do.

    Thanks,
    Steven.

    The Forum publishes Open API success stories, such as on this link https://inform.tmforum.org/tag/open-api/ , I don't recall seeing anything related to TAM in those stories, but there's a lot of material there and I may have missed some.
    Good luck in your search!

    Hi Steven

    I am not sure I fully understand your need but we do not have a list of venders that have product based on TAM Applications. While I have a recollection that  in the distant past we did facilitate our members with a section the showcased their products, I do not believe we have that any more for many years now.

    We are working on a number of improvements to our website, one of which is to make the Companies page (like this one) something that is editable by the members. There could be a section where you could put in your products. It's not a Marketplace but would be a step towards what you want.
    I was thinking about having a section for ODA compliant products and those that support TM Forum Open APIs. It sounds like there maybe value in linking to TAM as well. I will add it to the backlog and come back to the Community for further requirements nearer the time (feel free to also add more here or me on sdaavis@tmforum.org)
    I can't give you timescales yet unfortunately. We are currently working on moving this Community to a new platform and the new Catalyst Spaces

    In the meantime it might be worth posting the actual requirements you have right now and see if any of the vendors on here can meet them.

    Think Avi and Sue have reported on the formal current position and plans.

    In the interim what you might find useful is to look at the current and future catalysts  by the  topic or vendor at

    TM Forum - Site Content - Page - Catalyst Project Summary  for curent catlytst
    and the sub page for prior catalyst
    Previous Catalysts | TM Forum | TM Forum
    which is searchable by  topics and company

    This gives an insight is what member companies are doing and what aspects of ODA and API they are or plan to support . There are, on some of the catalysts, showbags with White papers and vendor brochures that give some good insights.
