Vic Bozzo is senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Telarix. Here he tells VanillaPlus that consumer big data projects are not the only means by which CSPs can benefit from business intelligence. By sharing data on peering, roaming and bilateral deals amongst themselves, they can streamline the process of working together and ensure they are getting the optimum out of their relationships. Critically, as the value chain diversifies and retailers, OTTs and other third parties become more enmeshed in the CSP value chain, such relationships will proliferate and greater insights will be required. Ultimately, success will come from creating business-to-business platforms that deliver real business intelligence to companies across the market.
