SAN MATEO, CA and MONTREAL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Guavus, a leading provider of big data analytics solutions, today announced it has acquired Neuralitic Systems, the mobile data monetization and marketing analytics experts serving the telecommunications industry. Montreal-based Neuralitic provides deep-dive analysis into mobile data, enabling Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to generate new revenue streams by improving decision-making aimed at subscriber acquisition, conversion and retention. The combination of Neuralitic's applications for mobile marketing with Guavus network and customer care applications enables global CSPs to attain timely and actionable insights that optimize business operations, support data monetization, generate new revenue streams and enhance the customer experience.

Guavus's decisioning applications provide insights across network, device, content and subscriber analytics, enabling carriers to realize cost savings by optimizing network capacity, increasing revenues through the introduction of new services and delivering a better subscriber experience. Neuralitic's application for mobile marketing adds key insights into subscribers' mobile data consumption for marketing decision makers. Used together, these decisioning applications democratize timely decision-making across engineering, customer care, and marketing business functions.
"In today's fast paced environment where new smartphones come and go in a quarter, businesses cannot afford to wait to integrate disparate tools or invest in expensive BI projects to get access to valuable insights," said Anukool Lakhina, Founder and CEO, Guavus. "Businesses need to be in the know so they can make more intelligent and timely decisions across line of business functions. With the addition of Neuralitic, Guavus now has a holistic data fabric that provides integrated decision-making across network, marketing, and customer care, and enables the creation of data-driven business processes to deliver and optimize the right service at the right time."

"By joining forces, we provide CSPs with a single, integrated solution that is scalable to carrier-class environments, offers an immediate return on investment, and makes timely decision-making a reality. Carriers no longer need to invest in large systems integration projects, cross their fingers and wait 12 months to see if their investment pays off."
The financial transaction closed on December 5, 2012, and the acquisition is effective immediately. As part of the transaction, Guavus global headquarters will remain in San Mateo, California and the company will have international offices in Montreal, Singapore and London, with research and development offices in Gurgaon and Ahmedabad, India.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
