Anyone who’s tried online dating will know that you can learn quite a bit about someone before meeting him or her. While the information may be pretty superficial, it’s usually enough to decide if you have anything in common with this person. People generally share information about their jobs or hobbies, their interests and goals. And often these sites will analyse your data and pair up people who share the same interests or live in similar locations.
Dating apps and matchmaking sites are designed to give you a sneak peak into who someone is before you decide to actually ask them on a date. The reality, however, is that you’re seeing just a sneak peak of someone. It’s only once you talk to or spend some time with this person that truly find out what they’re actually like.
If you’re looking for a telecoms lifecycle and expense management (TEM) solution, you should think of your options in the same way.
Just scratching the surface
On the one hand, you have traditional TEM with basic, surface analytics. Yes, this will give you a view of your telecoms expenses and your overall telecoms environment, but, much like reading someone’s dating profile, you’re only getting half the picture. You can scan through your telecoms bill a thousand ways but it really won’t tell you much more than who spent too much money that month.
Now, it’s time to dig a little deeper
With advanced TEM solutions you have all the tools and integration you need to use this data to forecast, respond in real time and run your entire environment as efficiently as possible. This is gives a business the ability to make smarter decisions. In a recent blog post, we discussed how modern TEM can help a business cut costs and manage the entire telecoms lifecycle. Yes, when compared with the analytics capabilities of old, modern TEM has evolved, drastically, but the real value of TEM as we know it today goes beyond analytics. It requires a full spectrum understanding of entire telecoms environments and how they intermingle with and affect business processes.
At Nebula, we believe that successfully managing your telecoms lifecycle means gathering a multitude of data that makes it possible to optimise budgets while accessing all the rich and valuable information that sits below the surface.
