CLAIMS

1. An apparatus, in a user data holding entity, comprising:

at least one processor and at least one memory including computer program code, the at least one memory and the computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus at least to perform :

holding analytic services information related to a user equipment or application in the user data holding entity, and

providing the analytic services information, which is related to the user equipment or to an application related to the user equipment, to a network element subscribed to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application or to a network element requesting such analytic services information related to the user equipment or application.

2. The apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the subscription to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application is preconfigured, or

wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

receiving a request for the subscription to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application from a network element.

3. The apparatus according to claim 1 or 2, wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

receiving the analytics service information related to the user equipment or application from a network element, and

storing the analytics service information in the user data holding entity.

4. An apparatus, in a network element, comprising:

at least one processor and at least one memory including computer program code, the at least one memory and the computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus at least to perform :

receiving analytics service information related to a user equipment or application from a user data holding entity [UDR], and

triggering an analytic service with respect to the user equipment or application based on the received analytic services information.

5. The apparatus according to claim 4, wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

subscribing to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application with the user data holding entity, or requesting the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application from the user data holding entity.

6. The apparatus according to claim 4 or 5, wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

triggering the analytic service based on the analytic triggering conditions indicated by the analytic services information,

wherein the analytic triggering conditions comprises a user context information and/or network conditions and/or a location.

7. The apparatus according to any one of the claims 4 to 6, wherein the subscription to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application to the user data holding entity is preconfigured, or wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

transmitting a request for the subscription to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application to the user data holding entity.

8. An apparatus, in a network element, comprising:

at least one processor and at least one memory including computer program code, the at least one memory and the computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus at least to perform :

configuring analytics service information related to a user equipment or application, and

providing the analytics service information to a user data holding entity.

9. The apparatus according to claim 8, wherein the at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to further perform:

providing the analytics service information to the user data holding entity via another network element.

10. The apparatus according to any one of the claims 1 to 9, wherein the analytic services information comprises analytic services and/or analytic triggering conditions.

11. The apparatus according to claim 10,

wherein the analytic services in the user data holding entity are identified by analytic identifiers, and/or

wherein the analytic triggering conditions comprises a user context information and/or network conditions and/or a location.

12. A method, in a user data holding entity, comprising:

holding analytic services information related to a user equipment or application in the user data holding entity, and

providing the analytic services information, which is related to the user equipment or to an application related to the user equipment, to a network element subscribed to the analytic services information related to the user equipment or application or to a network element requesting such analytic services information related to the user equipment or application.

13. A method, in a network element, comprising:

receiving analytics service information related to a user equipment or application from a user data holding entity, and

triggering an analytic service with respect to the user equipment or application based on the received analytic services information.

14. A method, in a network element, comprising:

configuring analytics service information related to a user equipment or application, and

providing the analytics service information to a user data holding entity.

15. A computer program product comprising code means for performing a method according to any one of the claims 12 to 14 when run on a processing means or module.
