The zeotap Story
Nearly one hundred and fifty years ago John D. Rockefeller revolutionized the oil industry. He realized oil’s potential to transform entire industries if it was extracted, carefully refined for different purposes and safely distributed through a network that would reach end users everywhere. His company, Standard Oil, made Rockefeller the most successful US businessman ever.
In 2014, zeotap was founded based on the belief that data from telecom operators also has the potential to become a powerful innovation engine across industry sectors, if it is extracted, refined and intelligently distributed. Accordingly, zeotap borrows its name from the oil industry’s most effective catalysts, zeolites, and the aspiration of making data as safely and easily accessible as water from a tap.
Today zeotap is the global leader in telecom data on-boarding and has attracted many large corporates from outside the telecom space to also join its unique data platform.
