a hybrid approach
to integrating OSS old and new would be prudent otherwise it's an impossible task all things considered. the delination point can be billing systems for instance where a abstraction layer is created between old and new. less distruption to the back-ends. there is a lot of new revenues to be had if telco can move on nfv quckly. provisioning can be done at the click of a customer button.

Re: a hybrid approach
I agree, @Mark_Anthony, that taking a hybrid approach is the most sensible tactic, both in terms of cost and time. Aggressive service providers are taking on some really ambitious projects right now - they have to, really, to stay competitive and gain market share - and these implementations take more than tech: They require extensive cultural buy-in and training, which are often more difficult than the sophisticated technologies being implemented. As you say, tying together old and new saves on the tech costs and also means less user training or the need to get employees sold on (yet another) new solution, skill or approach to their job.
