​Unisys Advanced Analytics Enable Somos to Identify Business Trends and Support its Toll-Free Number Registry

​Predictive analytics as a service allow Somos to drive innovative offerings

BLUE BELL, Pa., August 2, 2016Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that it is providing Somos, Inc. with a cloud-enabled Unisys Advanced Analytics solution that allows Somos to better support its business.

A longtime Unisys client, Somos administers a database of 40 million toll-free numbers, as well as a growing registry of text-enabled toll-free numbers, for more than 400 service providers throughout the United States and Canada.

The Unisys solution is integral to Somos' evolution to a digital business model, in which components of IT services are integrated to capture business information that can be analyzed and used quickly for delivery of new client and partner services. Unisys delivers the solution on an "as a service" basis at lower cost than Somos' prior third-party business-intelligence solution.

"Unisys' Advanced Analytics solution gives us a broad view into crucial data and supports our ability to identify directional trends in real time," said William Carter, chief operating officer, Somos. "Unlike backward-looking business intelligence, those predictive analytics give us the edge we need in an increasingly complex and competitive communications marketplace."

The Unisys analytics solution receives terabytes of Somos operational information daily, including search and reservations activity by toll-free service providers, system utilization, and event information from the Somos help desk. Unisys data scientists use advanced analytics technology to discern usage patterns that Somos can use to quickly expand and target the services it provides.

"Unisys' flexible platform, expert data scientists and experience in enterprise-scale analytics engagements worldwide have already enhanced Somos' customer service and given the company new ways to grow," said Rod Fontecilla, vice president, Analytics, Unisys. "We are committed to delivering further innovations that help Somos expand its reach and quality of service."
