New Communications Edition drives faster business and network decisions for service providers
Irvine, CA - August 6, 2012 - Alteryx, Inc., a leading provider of Strategic Analytics, today announced the release of Alteryx Strategic Analytics: Communications Edition for the unique analytic needs of wireless, wireline, and cable operators, as well as the equipment suppliers who support them. The Communications Edition integrates industry-specific business and technical data with third-party network insight, so communications service providers can support their most strategic network and customer decisions based on knowledgeable industry insights, industry content and pre-packaged analytic applications.
"Alteryx has a strong reach into the Communications industry. We serve many of the largest North American carriers by bringing deep sector knowledge into a powerful analytics offering - no other vendor can provide similar insights to wireless, wireline and cable providers," said George Mathew, president and chief operating officer at Alteryx. "Today's communication networks and the OSS/BSS infrastructure that supports them present some of the biggest data flow and analytics opportunities in the market. We fundamentally believe that humanizing the industry's abundant data will create innovative services, reduce consumer churn, improve network performance, and thus deliver a better customer experience."
This Alteryx expertise provides direct IP experience through easy to use, best practices analytic applications for strategic problems such as customer churn, and brings industry-specific data that adds deeper context to organizational data, marketing insights and customer billing information. The Communications Edition also enables time savings by automatically pulling departmental data on-demand from RF planning systems or across the full network, and then provides a way to streamline inefficient business processes, often from days or weeks to seconds.
The Communications Edition from Alteryx includes business firmographic data from Alteryx Strategic Analytics 7.1 that has been enhanced by GeoResults to include network spending estimates, bandwidth requirements, and other key industry-specific details. "Alteryx allows service providers to augment their existing internal data with the highest quality market and network data available from premier third-party providers," explains Ted Shields, president and CEO of GeoResults. "This solution allows service providers to fill intelligence gaps, and give them the market and customer foresight to intelligently grow their business and optimize network resources."
"Our industry is constantly inundated by massive amounts of data, and it is essential for my team to easily aggregate the information relevant for our business operations," said Charemon Tovar, Director of Strategy, Innovation and Information Management at CBRE Global Corporate Services. "Alteryx provides us with the right tools that enable faster analysis, with more relevant data, deriving valuable components that are key for our business, whether it be customer insights, marketing opportunities, or new store locations."
Currently, eight of the ten largest wireless service providers in North America use Alteryx Strategic Analytics for their daily business operations. The Communications Edition addresses the needs of all types of communications service providers to:
