Singapore-based ISP and MVNO MyRepublic has engaged Hitachi to help accelerate the company’s telecommunications technology strategy and enhance business operations in Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia.

The operator has selected the Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho Data Integration and Business Analytics platform to help it expand further into the region and to launch mobile services on top of existing broadband services.

MyRepublic is using the Pentaho platform to improve productivity around data storage and operational efficiency, and to provide enterprise-grade scalability.

“The implementation of Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho data integration and analytics has strengthened MyRepublic’s telcotech strategy across the region, which will help us to scale quickly and expand our offerings to other markets in the future,” MyRepublic group CIO Eugene Yeo said.

“While we have made significant manpower savings, the bigger benefit is the robust data pipeline we’ve been able to build. Pentaho allows us to add data to this pipeline rapidly, which is important to this vision. Similar to what fintech players achieved with the financial services industry, it paves the way for us to create new data monetization models that will lead to further innovation in the industry.”

With the Pentaho platform, MyRepublic was able to integrate and blend data from disparate sources and then create the necessary dashboards with just two software engineers. Pentaho also allows MyRepublic to easily embed dashboards within its BOSS, CRM and back-office systems so that users can access insights while working within the operational systems.

Looking forward, MyRepublic plans to continue partnering with Hitachi Vantara to expand its use of Pentaho to drive more savings and new revenue streams. Planned launches of mobility services in various markets will see MyRepublic capture up to 100 times more data that can be monetized or used to drive new products and services.
