Ventraq’s solutions are an integral part of our efforts for continuous improvement. Today, business decisions take into account network transactions from over 80 sources to understand their impact on our business performance.

Ventraq, a leading provider of highly scalable Data Integration, Business Analytics and Personalization solutions for communication service providers (CSPs) announced today that EarthLink, a long-term customer, has deployed Ventraq’s Business Analytics solutions for Revenue Assurance, Cost Management and Traffic Analytics. These analytics applications have allowed EarthLink to automate the detailed audit and reconciliation of its internal systems and data from partner companies to improve visibility into possible missed revenues, identify potential opportunities to reduce costs, optimize traffic allocations, and flag questionable traffic patterns.

EarthLink has also upgraded to EventDynamics 3.0, Ventraq’s next-generation Data Integration platform to consolidate data collection, mediation and distribution functions from multiple systems, eliminating several solutions and hardware servers in the process, and establishing a unified platform in preparation for new enhanced services.

“Ventraq’s solutions are an integral part of our efforts for continuous improvement,” said Ronald L. Gray, EarthLink’s VP of Operational Excellence. “Today, business decisions take into account network transactions from over 80 sources to understand their impact on our business performance.”

As a result of having deployed the Ventraq solutions, EarthLink has seen several benefits over the past few months:

  •     Complex, spreadsheet driven processes which used to take days are now available on-demand, allowing the company to respond with agility.
  •     Ability to manipulate and analyze vast amounts of data efficiently and effectively in a highly user configurable interface.
  •     Ability to link multiple data sources like billing and switch traffic to perform dynamic reconciliations.
  •     Deployed a common platform to multiple organizations like Engineering, Network Planning and Cost Management which eliminates the need for multiple independent databases.
  •     Provide reporting customers need to meet their business requirements.
  •     Identified projects and savings opportunities that will payback the initial investments within 12 months of deployment.

“Our relationship with EarthLink is a great example of how Ventraq’s expanded portfolio helps service providers take end-to-end advantage of the richness of their network, customer and business data to directly impact the bottom line,” said Dave Sellers, President at Ventraq. “Our solutions interrogate the network infrastructure, bring in information from internal and external systems, and create an environment where our customers can monitor, analyze, postulate, and respond accordingly to ensure the most efficient and profitable decisions in service to their subscribers. “
