Telco operators have worked with big data even before it had a name. By making data work for them, they have improved quality of service and customer satisfaction and have been some of the first companies to truly monetize their data.

Leveraging massive amounts of data has been a technical and architectural challenge. Most telco operators have adopted data lakes as cost-effective, highly scalable architectures for collecting and processing massive volumes of data and data types. Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du), one of the UAE’s largest telecommunications companies, is addressing this issue with a game-changing modern data lake architecture.

Dirk Jungnickel explains how Dubai-based telco leader du leverages big data to create smart cities and enable location-based data monetization, covering business objectives and outcomes and addressing technical and analytical challenges.

Topics include:

  • Architectural considerations
  • Platform requirements for the IoT
  • Performing root cause analysis
  • The impact of data volume on pattern recognition
