This survey is now closed.

European Communications latest quarterly survey takes its second annual look at big data.

In the survey, respondents can give their thoughts on how close telcos are to predicting customer behaviour, overcoming the challenges of regulation and privacy as well as whether outsourcing is the best way forward given talent shortages.

Last year, just over half of operators said big data was a strategic goal, over a quarter said the biggest challenge was understanding the potential that big data presents, while nearly two-thirds said they did not have right human resources in place.

The results of the survey will appear in the Q3 edition of European Communications magazine, which features a special report on big data.

European Communications is also hosting a big data seminar in London on 24 September.
