Telenor Pakistan is the second largest mobile telecom operator in Pakistan,
with over 30 million subscribers and a 25 percent market share. It is owned by
Telenor ASA, a multinational telecommunications company.

When Telenor Pakistan was launched in 2005, it had a basic reporting data
warehouse with not enough subject areas to enable views for operational
business requirements or the scalability to add sources crucial for strong
positioning in a market increasingly dominated by price competition. The shift
to a robust Teradata integrated data analytics platform delivers a 360-degree
customer view using data from multiple source systems. Today, Telenor's
analytics platform goes beyond traditional reporting, extending insights from
their platform to commercial applications of analytics that intelligently
route calls, drive cross-selling and up-selling, enable customer centricity in
marketing strategies, customize offers for each individual customer, target
micro-segments, and predict customer behavior.

This strategic analytics platform provides a sustainable competitive advantage
to Telenor Pakistan. With improved customer service and increased revenue, the
company has strengthened its second position in the market. Some of the
applications at Telenor are:

  oMagic Screen, which combines customer data, CRM functionality, BI, and
    data mining in a single view.
  oBehavior Centric Routing, which scores every customer using a host of
    criteria to route callers to the right type of agent.
  oSystem X, that allows Marketing to rapidly define incentives for customers
    in near real-time.
  oChurn Prediction, which uses data mining techniques to quickly identify
    probable churners and facilitates incentives for them to stay.
  oBehavioral Segmentation, which allows respective brand managers to
    identify which groups of subscribers are behaving in line with the brand's
    unique selling proposition
  oLocation Intelligence, a strategic tool for creating visual representation
    of geographic relationships by combining streams of commercial data and
    technology KPIs in the EDW.

"We are pleased that Telenor has earned recognition with TDWI – yet even more,
we celebrate Telenor's superb results," said Scott Sobers, Director,
Communications Industry Marketing and Strategy, Teradata. "Telenor Pakistan is
leveraging its Teradata analytics platform to its competitive advantage, as it
was fifth to enter the regional market and has now climbed quickly to become
the area's second leading provider."

TDWI's Best Practices Awards program identifies and honors companies that
demonstrate excellence in developing, deploying, and maintaining BI and DW
applications. Companies and sponsoring solution providers from diverse
industries submitted entries that were judged in a variety of categories. The
nominated solutions were evaluated based on business impact, maturity,
innovation, and relevance.

"The competition for this year's Best Practices Awards was at an all-time
high. We saw innovative, forward-thinking solutions from many of the best and
brightest in the BI/DW industry," said Richard Zbylut, president of TDWI.
"This year's winners stand out on the leading edge and showcase an array of
bold, new strategies destined to push and challenge the BI status quo. TDWI is
honored to share that work with a larger audience."
