Telenor Pakistan distinguished itself from the competing submissions for its execution of data-warehouse-driven business practices that generated significant business value.  Telenor Pakistan won in the category of Enterprise Business Intelligence and will be among those honored this week at the TDWI World Conference.

As the fastest growing mobile operator in the country, Telenor Pakistan has seen a high return on investment from better business intelligence in micro-segmentation, cross-selling and up-selling.

This is the second consecutive award Telenor Pakistan has earned from TDWI. In 2009 the company received a Best Practices award in the Enterprise Data Warehouse category.
