Abstract

Big Data is much more than a trendy new IT solution, it is about building a platform to support both operational optimization and new business initiatives. Telecoms operators are definitely in a key position to generate new revenues from such a platform.

Summary

The report details the first initiatives of Big Data in telecoms, evaluating the challenges and opportunities for operators as well as the vendor footprint and competition.

Overview

With Big Data, the telecoms operators finally have a good opportunity to develop new business models beyond traditional connectivity. Big Data is a concept of the Internet companies, which began analyzing an enormous quantity of data in real time to drive their business decisions.
