SNAzzy is for analysing the social networks induced by calling patterns of the customers of Telecom Service Providers. It builds a social network of the telecom subscribers from the “who-calls-whom” CDR data. By analyzing the social network thus constructed, we can derive several useful insights about the customers’ interaction amongst each others and its implications. SNAzzy can find communities; find targets for campaigns of socially influenced product, predict potential churners, determine the ideal targets for acquisition from competition and assign importance score to the customers. his can help identifying group targets for promotions and campaigns. SNAzzy can also analyse churn behaviour to identify potential churners. Using SNAzzy, one can identify potential acquisition targets from the competition. Dr.Amit A. Nanavati is a Senior Technical Lead for Cognitive Automation Solutions at IBM. He joined IBM Research India in 2000 and has since worked on projects in ecommerce, data mining, telecom and mobile. He managed the Telecom Solutions Research group (2008-2013) which won Research Division Awards for their work on Social Network Analysis in Telecom and the Spoken Web projects. He was a Senior Manager of the Mobile and Telecom Research Group in 2014. Amit was named a Master Inventor in 2011, and became a member of the IBM Academy of Technology in 2013.
