How this Aussie partner plans to change the way the telco industry analyses data
The telecommunications space is one vertical Datameer sees great potential in, in terms of revolutionising the way they process and use data, according to its director, Stuart Rees. Rees told ARN that together with Cloudera, the company is making waves in the telco industry.
According to Rees, the company that runs on most Hadoop distributors like MapR and Hortonworks, has done deployments for two major telco players in Australia, using the Cloudera platform.
“There was a lack of visibility on some of the key metrics and in trying to define some of the key metrics, they went to the point where they could do things in which they didn’t even think were possible.
“So, they’ve gone from being behind their competitors in terms of what they’ve done with system reporting or business intelligence and leapfrogged where they’ve put themselves competitively,” he said.
Rees said this builds off the success of a Cloudera and Fujitsu deployment the company did for the DKFZ Cancer Institute in Germany to facilitate their determination of the effects of different cancer drugs on different cancers within the institute.
“We do things in some ways that other players don’t do and that gives us a pretty good advantage in terms of time and creation of value. We offer a face to Cloudera because we offer business discovery across massive sets of data on top of the technology.”
Rees mentioned four ways that puts Datameer ahead from other SIs.
