SLT for­ays into cloud based data vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion and en­ables an­a­lyt­ics ser­vice

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - ICT -

Sri Lanka Tele­com (SLT), has joined hands with dataw­erks Gmbh, an in­no­va­tive data vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion so­lu­tions provider that of­fers a rad­i­cally new ap­proach to de­liv­er­ing real time busi­ness in­sights to busi­ness or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The so­lu­tion will be of­fered on ‘Akaza’, SLT’S cloud plat­form. SLT’S cloud based data vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion and an­a­lyt­ics ser­vice will en­able real time big data an­a­lyt­ics and Busi­ness In­tel­li­gence (BI) so­lu­tions for en­ter­prises in Sri Lanka.

“As cus­tomer data en­vi­ron­ments get more and more com­plex, and with in­creased com­pet­i­tive pres­sure, the need for real time big data an­a­lyt­ics and Busi­ness In­tel­li­gence will as­sume new im­por­tance for any en­ter­prise,” said SLT En­ter­prise So­lu­tion GM M.I. Deen. Adding fur­ther he said: “Be­ing the na­tional ICT so­lu­tions provider, SLT is highly fo­cused to of­fer the best data man­age­ment so­lu­tions in a cloud en­vi­ron­ment to en­ter­prise cus­tomers.”

With this part­ner­ship, SLT busi­ness cus­tomers will be able to vir­tu­alise their en­tire data set, no mat­ter the num­ber or types of data source, and en­able real time data ac­cess to busi­ness in­tel­li­gence tools and other ap­pli­ca­tions. This new ‘data mashup’ tech­nol­ogy will al­low users to quickly com­bine and cor­re­late data from dif­fer­ent sys­tems whether held as struc­tured or un­struc­tured data. In­te­grated in­sights can be quickly gen­er­ated and de­liv­ered via mul­ti­ple plat­forms, at half the cost and half the time when com­pared to legacy data ware­hous­ing tech­nol­ogy.

“What is truly ground­break­ing about this ser­vice from SLT, is that en­ter­prises no longer have to in­vest large sums of money on hard­ware and in­fras­truc­ture up­front and then wait sev­eral months un­til an IT project is com­pleted. SLT en­ter­prise cus­tomers can elect to se­curely vir­tu­alise their en­tire data set and have this ready to go within weeks,” said dataw­erks CTO Tony An­dris, adding fur­ther that: “SLT’S will­ing­ness and abil­ity to in­no­vate with new ser­vice of­fer­ings will greatly ben­e­fit en­ter­prises in Sri Lanka. SLT will be the first to mar­ket with data vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion so­lu­tions in the re­gion. Any en­ter­prise that is look­ing into Data Ware­house or Data Lakes projects to gain a holis­tic view across all their data sources should look no fur­ther and get in touch with SLT.”

SLT will also pro­vide 24/7 sup­port and ser­vice as­sur­ance to help main­tain all cus­tomer net­works.

SLT data vir­tu­al­i­sa­tion and an­a­lyt­ics so­lu­tions are aimed at equip­ping lo­cal en­ter­prises with the full range of ICT so­lu­tions to help suc­ceed in the global arena. Speed, con­nec­tiv­ity and se­cu­rity are key de­mands busi­nesses make and SLT’S wide port­fo­lio of ser­vices is per­fectly poised to meet and ex­ceed these ex­pec­ta­tions. SLT’S rich port­fo­lio of flex­i­ble host­ing so­lu­tions of­fers busi­nesses the as­sur­ance that their mis­sion crit­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­fras­truc­ture is safe under SLT’S ex­per­tise.
