Overview:

Telcos have a major advantage in that they have many sources of data but if they want to monetize that data and derive meaningful, actionable analytics it could be challenging due to the complexities of correlation, prediction, and the massive volumes of data from different sources. Identifying and leveraging available data sources, especially for external and commercial interests is an important matter. It is also a matter of trust while using Big Data technologies since data comes from customers who willingly provide their details.

Target Audience:

  • Telecom network operators
  • Telecom infrastructure suppliers
  • Big Data and analytics companies
  • Data as a Service (DaaS) companies
  • Cloud-based service providers of all types
  • Data processing and management companies
  • Application Programmer Interface (API) companies
  • Public investment organizations including investment banks
  • Private investment including hedge funds and private equity
