Telco Location Data Monetization

Case Study


Telecommunications companies’ day-to-day business activities produce massive and unique anonymized data sourced from mobile devices in the hands and pockets of end-users. Our client, a global player in the telco industry, had traditionally used this data to optimize their network and operations, but as modern data platform capabilities made it easier to monetize data for extra revenue, they began taking exploratory steps in this direction. The company had relied on HCLTech Starschema as a trusted partner for a variety of projects, including their agile transformation, and once again reached out for help.
