Israeli big data data analytics company SQream announced that it has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with a tier-1 mobile operator. A source close to the deal told "Globes" that it could be worth more than $20 million over the next five years. SQream already has major agreements in the telecom sector with Orange, LG UPlus, AIS, Cellcom and others. SQream says it enables operators to provide better quality of service with lower downtime and reduced network costs, and improved personalized service offerings.
SQream CRO Adi Gelvan said, "Mobile operators face intense competition, and are constantly seeking ways to provide subscribers with better quality of service, more personalized offerings and improved customer service. With the emerging challenges facing operators due to the huge volumes of data from 5G and IoT, being able to rapidly access and analyze their massive data enables superior decision making to better compete and drive their business forward."
