DataSpark Signs Landmark Deal With Global Communications Leader Ooredoo for Advanced Data-Driven Smart Network Planning (SNP) Solution

Share

DataSpark has signed a multi-year strategic deal with communications giant, Ooredoo Group, to automate and standardise their group-wide network planning processes, optimise capital expenditure spending and deliver superior customer experience.

The agreement will see DataSpark introduce its state-of-the-art Smart Network Planning (SNP) product to help establish an advanced analytics platform and capability in network planning across all 10 Ooredoo Group operating companies around the world.

The SNP solution (also referred to as CAPEX Optimizer in some regions) will deliver cost and operational efficiencies for Ooredoo Group’s network expansion investments while ensuring that fast-evolving customer needs are always kept at the centre of decision making.

The product utilises advanced machine learning methodologies to forecast and anticipate network capacity and throughput ahead of time, enabling Ooredoo to direct its capital expenditure in a way that creates the most value for the end customer.

DataSpark Chief Operating Officer, Shaowei Ying, said the partnership is a testament to DataSpark’s ability to provide performance-driven analytics solutions for global telco providers.

“The SNP solution empowers Ooredoo’s operating companies to have an automated, data-driven and customer-centric approach to their radio network capacity planning. It leverages best-in-class technologies that DataSpark developed over the last decade to process data at scale and extract granular insights for decision optimisation,” said Mr Ying. “We welcome this landmark partnership with Ooredoo Group which represents a significant milestone. DataSpark, as part of NCS NEXT, will continue expanding telco-centric analytic solutions and collaborate with telecommunication clients globally.”

The SNP’s application for telcos is founded on several key factors including automated and cost-efficient network planning through customer experience, services and network metrics, and layered analytics to inform accurate network investment decisions.

Ooredoo Group Chief Technology and Information Officer, Nigel Thomas Byrne, said the company’s venture with DataSpark would help ensure visibility and standardisation into network planning activities across the Ooredoo Group. This will also help in sharing network planning best practices across the group and further strengthen the culture of data-driven decision making.

“The insights and recommendations delivered through DataSpark’s SNP solution will provide cost-optimisation and allow us to innovate with our networks, ultimately enhancing the customer experience,” said Mr Byrne. “Our mission to deliver superior service is predicated on high-performance network planning and capacity management, and SNP’s advanced analytics will help us make informed decisions to deliver on this goal.”

DataSpark empowers organisations with mobility intelligence to help maximise the value of their networks and save on capital investment spending.

In the first half of 2021, Boehringer Ingelheim has supplied more humans and animals worldwide with innovative medicines than ever before. The company’s success is based on its rich R&D portfolio with a focus on diseases with high unmet medical need. The R&D pipeline in Human Pharma comprises more than 60 new substances and around 100 clinical and pre-clinical projects. This pipeline has the potential to deliver up to 15 medicines for approval by 2025.

More than 60 million patients worldwide suffer from this disease, approx. half of them from heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Heart failure with left ventricular preserved ejection fraction occurs when the left ventricle of the heart is unable to fill properly, resulting in less blood being pumped to the body.

Personalis, Inc. Publishes New Data Demonstrating a Novel Composite Biomarker NEOPS™ for Predicting Response to Cancer Immunotherapy in Late-Stage Melanoma Patients2.8.2021 22:05:00 CEST | Press release

Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced translational genomics and diagnostics for cancer, today announced the publication of its study "Prediction of immunotherapy response in melanoma through combined modeling of neoantigen burden and immune-related resistance mechanisms,"(1) in Clinical Cancer Research, a journal published by the American Association for Cancer Research. The study details the development of the Personalis Neoantigen Presentation Score (NEOPS™), a novel composite biomarker for predicting response to cancer immunotherapy. Enabled by comprehensive tumor immunogenomic profiling from the Personalis NeXT Platform, NEOPS simultaneously models both neoantigen burden and immune-related resistance mechanisms to better predict immunotherapy response in a cohort of late-stage melanoma patients. In this study, NEOPS was more strongly predictive of therapy response than other standard single analyte and investigational biomarkers tested, including tumor mutational b
