With the takeover of the Berlin-based start-up Minodes, Telefónica NEXT strengthens its competence in intelligent data analysis for offline retail. The core competency of Minodes is the analysis of anonymised customer flows within a shop. This provides offline retailers with the analytical and marketing possibilities of online retail. It allows them to better tailor their offers to the needs of their customers and to provide a better shopping experience.
In a data-driven society, every individual should be able to decide what happens to their personal data. This is where O2 GET comes in: Users can decide for themselves which personal information they’d like to enter into their O2 GET account, and also which companies and brands within the app they want to interact with.
Large cities are faced with constantly increasing pollution. But before cities can take specific measures against this problem, they first have to know where pollution is especially high. To this end, they require extensive data. As part of a pilot project in Nuremberg, for the first time, a method was developed that enables the analysis of traffic flows, and subsequently of air quality, using anonymised mobile network data. The approach is promising, which is why the methodology will be further developed in a follow-up project.
As part of its digital transformation, Telefónica Deutschland, with its start-up Telefónica NEXT, is advancing the Internet of Things (IoT) for end consumers.

The digital transformation is a central theme of CeBIT 2017. For Telefónica Deutschland, as a driver of digitization and the largest mobile communications provider on the German market by number of customers, CeBIT is the perfect place to present the company’s visions and products under the motto “#DesigningDigitalLives.” This is why, for the first time in ten years, Telefónica Deutschland returns to the show with a large-scale stand.
The overburdening of city transport systems is becoming an increasing challenge. But before cities can take concrete action, they need to gather precise traffic data. This is often very time consuming and expensive.
