In this week’s real-time analytics news: AWS and Snowflake independently launched solutions for the telecom market.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the important real-time analytics news items our staff came across this week. Here is our list:
Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the general availability of AWS Telco Network Builder, a fully managed service that helps customers deploy, run, and scale telco networks on AWS. Now, communications service providers (CSPs) can use their familiar telecom industry-standard language to describe the details of their network in a template uploaded to the service. AWS Telco Network Builder translates the template into a cloud-based network architecture and provisions the necessary AWS infrastructure, shortening the deployment of an operational, cloud-configured telco network from days to hours. As CSPs update their networks, AWS Telco Network Builder automatically adjusts compute and storage resources.
Snowflake announced the launch of the Telecom Data Cloud, which unites Snowflake’s data platform, Snowflake- and partner-delivered solutions, and industry-specific datasets. The Telecom Data Cloud helps telecommunications service providers break down data silos within companies and across the ecosystem, allowing organizations to access data easily and securely in near real-time, enrich it with machine learning (ML) models, and then share and analyze it to drive better decisions.
Linux Foundation Europe, an independent, trusted supporter and vendor-neutral home for open-source projects in Europe, announced the formation of the OpenWallet Foundation (OWF). This new, collaborative effort will develop open-source software to support interoperability for a wide range of wallet use cases, including making payments, proving identity, and storing validated credentials such as employment, education, financial standing, and entitlements — to enable trust in the digital future.
