Put your lazy data into action

Massive data loads are not a problem with software that handles all your data processing needs in a single, independent software layer and scales as your business and technical environments grow. Data Refinery has the brawn for heavy data lifting, the connectivity to integrate with everything and the brains to refine data into value.

Deriving value from the tremendous volume of data available to CSPs requires both intelligent analysis and intelligent distribution to critical operating processes and systems. The comprehensive mediation functionality delivered by Comptel EventLink 7.0 ensures that complex event data is quickly and efficiently put to use, to improve business performance and the customer experience.

The 1-2-3 of Data Refinery:

1. Beyond traditional billing mediation

Complex event processing (CEP) and refining value out of “Big Data in motion” – data that originates from multiple sources in a real-time environment. The Data Refinery adds intelligence to the data handling, and enables real-time analysis, decisions and actions based on the data going through the system streams. 

2. Automated campaigns

One of the new purposes for the Data Refinery is real-time analysis with decisions and actions to enable automated campaigning processes. This is something that Comptel has implemented for operators all over the world.

The Data Refinery combines real-time usage events with a real-time understanding of the subscription and the subscriber profile and location, for example, like whether the subscriber is roaming. The Data Refinery can accumulate different usages, and combine them with real-time analysis, make more relevant offers to the end customers with optimal timing. 

3. LTE leading the data explosion

Increased data usage is clearly visible to the users and developers of Data Refinery—a Tier 1 operator’s system, for instance, can now process as much as 500 TB of data daily (comparable to the daily usage of Facebook data).

"Organizations need to manage how best to filter the huge amounts of data coming from the IoT, social media and wearable devices, and then deliver exactly the right information to the right person, at the right time. Analytics will become deeply, but invisibly embedded everywhere."
