The Big Data Analytics Guidebook (GB979) provides guidance to a Communication Service Provider (CSP) on the major components that are needed for the implementation of real-life Big Data Analytics (BDA) use cases. While the guidebook itself goes into considerable detail on a number of specific example use cases, Addendum A (GB979A) zooms out, providing a broad over of the different big data analytics use cases that can be implemented in the CSPâ€™s business. This addendum B (GB797B) zooms in across all of the use cases defined in GB979A and identifies a suite of building blocks that are needed to realize one or more of these use cases.
Each of these BDA building blocks performs a foundational function that is use case independent to maximize reuse. Building blocks are usually constructed around a core model that encodes some knowledge about the CSP and/or the CSPâ€™s customers.
