DELIVERING DATA TRANSFORMATION WITH O2

O2—Moving beyond compliance to Digital Transformation with the Finance Data Hub

OVERVIEW

All telecommunications companies must comply with the new IFRS 15 global accounting standards by January 2018. Companies that fail to comply could carry a considerable compliance and audit risk. While meeting the requirement, O2 saw the potential to go beyond basic compliance to build something transformational.

Deploying innovations such as big data architectures, digital analytics and cloud environments would satisfy not only regulatory requirements, but also deliver foundations for O2 to operate as a truly data-driven company.

But first, O2 had to meet the considerable challenge of delivering the basics. It needed to create a centralised, highly-reconciled Financial Data Hub which would unify all financial reporting, delivering:

  • Optimised month-end reporting with capabilities for working day one posting and daily general ledger views.

  • Enhanced business-wide analytics on revenue and subscriber information.

  • Data refresh and reporting available by 9am daily.

  • End-to-end data lineage.

  • Audited data to source systems for fully trusted analytics; reconciled daily to match 99.9% of the source data.

  • Automation and easy management of all reference data and business rules.
