AWS Announces AWS Data Exchange
New service makes it easy for AWS customers to find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud
More than 1,000 products containing data now available in AWS Marketplace from more than 80 qualified data providers, including category-leading brands such as Reuters,
Enterprises, scientific researchers, and academic institutions have been using third-party data for decades to conduct research, power applications and analytics, train machine-learning models, and make data-driven decisions. But, as these customers subscribe to more third-party data, they often have to wait weeks to receive shipped physical media, manage sensitive credentials for multiple File Transfer Protocol (FTP) hosts and periodically check for updates, or code to several disparate application programming interfaces (APIs). These methods are inconsistent with the modern architectures customers are developing in the cloud. This forces customers to build and maintain automation to ensure that they have the most up-to-date third-party data in the data lakes, applications, analytics, and machine-learning models that they’re migrating to AWS. Finally, customers have to manage disparate billing relationships and licensing agreements with every data provider they use. For data providers, it’s challenging to reach every customer that might be interested in their data without large investments in sales and marketing, as well as technology to store, deliver, bill for, and entitle data for their customers. These barriers often prevent customers who have valuable data from becoming a data provider.
“Customers have asked us for an easier way to find, subscribe to, and integrate diverse data sets into the applications, analytics, and machine-learning models they’re running on AWS. Unfortunately, the way customers exchange data hasn’t evolved much in the last 20 years,” said
Reuters curates and distributes over 2.2 million unique news stories per year in multiple languages. “Reuters is constantly seeking new ways to broaden the reach of our independent, trusted and unbiased news content and data. We are excited to be among the first providers of such content on AWS Data Exchange, where our multi-language news data will be made available to a diverse range of AWS customers around the globe,” said
Dun & Bradstreet’s database of more than 330 million global business records helps retail, manufacturing, financial services, and technology customers improve their credit, risk, marketing, and sales operations. “Our customers have been using Dun & Bradstreet’s commercial data solutions to deliver insights that empower their ability to accelerate revenue, lower cost, mitigate risk, and transform their businesses. We are excited to now offer this data to our existing and prospective joint AWS customers in a cloud native way on AWS Data Exchange,” said
Databricks helps organizations make their data ready for analytics and enable data-driven decisions across their organization. “By integrating the AWS Data Exchange API into Databricks, our customers can seamlessly combine third-party data with their existing data lakes to perform advanced data science and analytics at scale on AWS,” said
Deloitte’s ConvergeHEALTH Miner platform empowers life sciences and healthcare organizations to drive transformation toward value-based, personalized medicine by applying integrated cloud-based analytics, knowledge management, and collaboration tools. “By integrating the AWS Data Exchange API into ConvergeHEALTH Miner, we’re giving our customers a quick and easy way to find, subscribe to, and use data from third parties alongside the data they’re already generating and analyzing in the cloud,” said
Foursquare is the most trusted, independent location data platform for understanding how people move through the real world. “Being a provider for AWS Data Exchange enables companies to directly access Foursquare’s audiences and places datasets—which is derived from our understanding of 220 million unique consumers, 100 million devices, and 60 million global commercial venues—in order to strengthen customer intelligence, build context-rich applications, and assess category & chain trends,” says
TruFactor’s anonymization platform and proprietary AI ingests, filters, and transforms more than 85 billion high-quality raw signals daily from wireless carriers, OEMs, and mobile apps into a unified, accurate view of the consumer across physical and digital dimensions. “Our patented TruFactor platform produces anonymized intelligence that enterprises can license with the confidence that they are meeting the highest standards of security, privacy, and compliance,” said
