TEOCO (The Employee Owned Company) is a leading provider of analytics, assurance and optimization solutions to the Telecom industry. It has over 300 communication service providers (CSPs) and OEM customers to which it provides actionable intelligence about revenue assurance, network quality of service, and customer experience. TEOCO’s expertise and value-add to their customers derives from three core competencies:
These high-scale requirements have always led TEOCO to push the envelope for data warehouse innovation, and the company was among the first to adopt IBM Netezza. However, with the explosion of data from mobile devices and 5G on the horizon, technology leaders at the company knew that its legacy Netezza data warehouse would need to be replaced with a modern, scalable alternative with much better price/performance.
In 2017, TEOCO evaluated several data warehousing solutions in an exhaustive, three-month process that, for most vendors, showed only modest performance improvements while revealing issues about migration, data load speed, and systems portability.
The exception was Yellowbrick Data. Although TEOCO only had a three-week window in which to complete its testing, with Yellowbrick’s data loading capabilities, overall performance and query compatibility, most of the testing was completed within a week--enabling TEOCO to spend the next two weeks pushing the limits of what Yellowbrick could do.
