Making Big Data Analytics Pay

T-Mobile Makes the Business Case for Big Data Analytics in Telecommunications.

Telcos and communications service providers (CSPs) are facing rapidly shrinking margins, competition from Over the Top providers and rising investment costs, which is putting tremendous pressure on their network analytics departments to do something! These teams must provide insights to the business that will help decrease churn, improve customer service and ultimately increase ARPU. But this is easier said than done when most telcos are still operating in silo mode, attempting to pull information out of various data marts and do analytics by Excel spreadsheet. This approach is ineffective in today’s competitive landscape and the new world of big data, which is not just about traditional data stores but also about all the apps, devices and location data unique to each customer.

This webinar will dig into the challenges CSPs face with big data analytics today and how one customer in particular, T-Mobile, was able to overcome some of these hurdles.
