MORRISTOWN, N.J. -- November 19, 2012

Today’s digital services-based economy has created a new realm of competition
in the communications sector and as a result service providers are fighting to
retain their increasingly fickle customers. To help prevent churn, they are
turning to their own data for insight into customer interest, behaviors and
patterns. However, this data can be unwieldy, overwhelming and impossible to
analyze without best practices in place. To help these service providers find
ways to manage their data in a cost-effective, efficient and secure way, TM
Forum is hosting its first-ever Big Data Analytics Summit, a unique, two-day
conference that brings together leading companies to help service providers
learn how to capitalize on big data analytics to cut costs, retain customers
and find new sources of revenue.

TM Forum’s Big Data Analytics Summit, held Jan. 29-20, 2013, at the Movenpick
Hotel in Amsterdam’s City Center, features big data analytics leaders, such as
Capgemini, eBay, Everything Everywhere, France Telecom-Orange, Google and
Teradata. The focused agenda is packed with case studies, debates, panels and
interactive networking sessions, and highlights the most important big data
issues facing service providers today, such as:

  *Exploiting the potential of big data analytics
  *How big data is driving big change
  *Big data analytics from both sides: Aligning business with IT
  *Ensuring customer information remains safe and secure
  *Using big data analytics and social media to maximize loyalty, reduce
    churn and improve customer satisfaction
  *Creating a truly personalized customer experience through big data
    analytics

“Today’s service providers have a vast amount of valuable customer information
at their fingertips. By identifying, correlating and analyzing the right data
quickly and efficiently, they can get an accurate view of their customers’
behavior and make immediate, fact-based decisions on customer experience,
service offerings and more,” said Martin Creaner, President and CEO, TM Forum.
“Our Big Data Analytics Summit is a must-attend conference for any service
provider looking to capture their share of the digital service
marketplace—especially with data analytics being one of the core competencies
required for any player to compete.”

communications industry’s pressing business issues by showing service
providers how to overcome the latest market challenges. The Summit Series
