Ericsson Expert Analytics Overview

Operators are under increasing pressure to deliver customer experiences that drive revenue growth and keep subscribers happy. Big data analytics tools have great promise, but fully leveraging insights exactly when they can be most impactful has proved a challenge. Operators have also had difficulty adapting generic big data solutions for their specific needs.

With Ericsson Expert Analytics (EEA), operators can obtain actionable customer experience and behaviour insights in real-time from cross-domain, multivendor big data.  Leveraging Ericsson’s domain expertise, combined with insights from machine learning, EEA can automatically drive decisions and actions that fix problems, mitigate churn, enhance ARPU, improve NPS and delight customers.
