As key facilitators of their customers’ digital and mobile lifestyles, telecoms operators generate a huge amount of valuable customer usage data which, if analyzed in the right way, can unlock valuable insights into consumer and market dynamics in the TMT sector.

In this white paper Ovum analyses the results and finding of a recent project where Nigerian mobile operator Etisalat Nigeria engaged big data analytics company Xoanon Analytics to enable them to derive new, actionable insights into consumer behavior through lifestyle-driven segmentation analysis of its customer data. Ovum picks out four key consumer trends that are shaping the Nigerian mobile market and provides recommendations for players looking to succeed across the TMT sector in Nigeria and other comparable markets.
