Business Challenge story

Wi-Fi provider SolutionInc wanted to give its clients insight into user engagement with public Wi-Fi spots. To extract value from its Wi-Fi network data, SolutionInc needed a new analytics capability.


By using IBM’s managed Spark service, IBM Analytics for Apache Spark, SolutionInc explored its big data, uncovering behavior patterns as customers visited and moved between different locations.


The ability to help clients optimize their capacity at different locations differentiates SolutionInc from competitors and opens the door to the development of new service offerings.
