IBB’s senior team of industry experts has pioneered and honed a media and telecom oriented approach to Big Data. With designated expertise in big data architecture, IBB is the business intelligence consultant of choice for operators, OEMs and media companies.

It is all too easy to lose sight of the business objectives amid the plethora of smartphone, M2M, app and clickstream data now available within an enterprise. Determining an agile data strategy with intelligent, predictive modelling is an ongoing and ever evolving challenge. Our core principle is to filter all data to meaningful and actionable intelligence, delivering insightful information to the right executive, at the right time.

A robust framework of data governance, internally between business and IT, and the data owner is essential. Best practice in navigating, sharing and extracting intelligence from the IOT, service providers, virtual networks and the unstructured mass of social data, needs to be established. IBB’s smart data methodology uses innovations in data science, social data analytics and data architecture, to address and solve the business issues behind complex fields.

Our technology and smart data teams operate across three principal areas of engagement: customer, service and network. Working across business and IT, we identify strategic questions relevant to the business problem and frame them into hypotheses that are individually tested using manageable data sets. Our skill is in finding and extracting data applicable to the problem, and the subsequent transformation of data into meaningful information. This process can also provide a vendor-neutral assessment of the enterprise’s data quality and IT capabilities, improving business intelligence and MI reporting throughout the company. With compliance at the heart, we offer full cloud security, across big data operations.


In today’s fast-paced, innovation-lead economy, companies face unique pressures. Not only must they support the technology and systems that power subscriber offerings, as well as meet internal needs of operations, marketing and care organizations, but also do so while addressing rapid product cycles, meeting scaling demands, addressing broad reaching integrations and effectively handling massive amounts of data. Achieving success in this environment requires organizations to remain nimble, to constantly innovate and adjust, and do so always with the big picture in mind.
