Ecosystem participants applied scenario 1

A city administration wants to better combat the adverse impact of air pollution on health. To that end, it would like to study mobility patterns to help monitor and predict pollution levels. A mobile operator puts a contract in place with the city authority to provide insights developed through the operator’s machine learning algorithms, using anonymised data from the mobile network. Anonymising the data preserves the privacy of users - no identifiable data is shared or accessed by anyone outside of the operator. The anonymised data can then be combined with other data sources, such as weather, traffic and air quality sensors, to predict pollution levels in advance. This information enables local authorities to take preventative steps, if emissions are likely to reach dangerous level.

Demand-side

Demand-side agencies (DSAs) are institutions and organisations that use insights from the analysis of mobile big data for their activities. They may include research institutions, social impact organisations, data analytics providers, government departments and agencies, development agencies, and NGOs, which use data to plan interventions, programmes, policies and strategies. As they have a specialised knowledge of the challenges they are trying to address, DSAs play an important role in articulating the problem statement to enable the identification of the relevant indicators and solutions to address it. Note, demand-side agencies can also be third-party data providers, thereby also positioning them as supply-side agencies in the BD4SG ecosystem.

Supply-side agencies (SSAs) include institutions and organisations like Mobile Operators and third party data providers/aggregators. They are able to process, analyse and package mobile big data for the benefit of Demand-side agencies. When informed by a clearly articulated demand-side need, SSAs can impart their unique knowledge of their datasets to transform the raw data into actionable insights.
