Roamware and IBM launch roaming Big Data analytics solution for telecoms

Roamware has tied up with IBM to launch its roaming Big Data analytics solution for telecom operators.

There are two important benefits to telecom operators.

RWisdom enables Indian mobile operators such as Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular, etc. to improve roaming revenues with dynamic Big Data driven insights on roaming subscriber behavior.

RWisdom also enables telecom operators to identify new revenue streams by offering dynamic location specific insights on subscriber behavior in an information-as-a-service model to industries such as retail, travel and financial services.

Roamware will leverage IBM’s Big Data platforms including both IBM InfoSphere BigInsights and IBM InfoSphere Streams platforms. RWisdom solution will also leverage IBM Analytics Accelerators – analytic engines integrated into these IBM platforms optimized for the telecom industry.

“We have entered the Data Age and mobile operators are best placed to benefit from rich data sources available in their networks and to become providers of data-driven subscriber insight to a variety of consumer driven industries,” said Bobby Srinivasan, COO & managing director – RWisdom, Roamware.

Roamware earlier said CloudSIM assists telecom operators and MVNOs to offer attractive roaming rates to international travelers on their home numbers. CloudSIM connects a network of hub operators who provide IMSIs (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) for regions around the world with client operators who offer these IMSIs on SIMs to subscribers who want to travel to those regions.

“The combination of Roamware’s analytics engine and IBM Big Data software provides mobile operators with a comprehensive view of subscriber data as well as home and partner network performance,” said Kathy McGroddy Goetz, VP – Business Development, Information Management, IBM.
