This week we are thrilled to announce our latest partnership with Pelephone, powering the Israeli telco's latest product: Smart Data. Set to invest five million shekels in the next two years, Pelephone will provide a unique opportunity to private and public sector clients to accelerate their Big Data journey leveraging the know-how we have developed in the Telefónica and LUCA team over the past 5 years.
This new alliance is further evidence of our world class capabilities. As with our joint venture with China Unicom, we will leverage our expertise to enable Pelephone to develop Smart Steps in Israel, a country which is already well-known for its advanced position in the world of innovation and entrepreneurship.
