Global machine learning and advanced analytics provider Cloudera has partnered with Australia’s data-driven marketing company Digital Alchemy.

Under the partership Cloudera’s solutions will form the core of Digital Alchemy’s decisioning program, designed to drive relevant, timely communications to the consumer.

Digital Alchemy says the partnership is aimed at empowering clients to make informed, flexible business decisions via two core offerings – CoreBox, a future-proof marketing automation solution and uDecide a machine learning decisioning engine.

Cloudera’s Hadoop-based enterprise Data Hub forms the core of Digital Alchemy’s data analytics program, providing what Cloudera claims is a fast, secure and easily scalable platform that adapts to changing business demands.

Cloudera was selected by Digital Alchemy after a competitive evaluation process.

“We were trying to find a big data platform that was easily scalable in terms of computation and storage capability, and more importantly, one that was easy to manage,” says Regan Yan, chief executive officer at Digital Alchemy.

“Being an analytics consultancy, the need to make maintenance and management less resource-intensive is not only essential to the upkeep of our quality standards, but essential to maintaining our competitive advantage.”

According to Shyam Sundar Srinivisan, country manager, Cloudera Australia, the partnership is testament to Cloudera’s “advanced standing in Australia, and points to the maturity of our offering”.

“As customer journeys become increasingly self-directed and businesses rely on data driven insights, we are uniquely placed to help smart, fast-moving, innovative companies like Digital Alchemy achieve their goals.”

Julian Lee, technical director, Digital Alchemy, says the decision to partner with Cloudera plays a “fundamental role in our business transformation strategy, as we work towards being a dynamic decisioning company”.

”Our key competitive advantage is the machine learning aspect of our predictive analytics solution, so it goes without saying that we have high computational demand. As such, Cloudera’s ability to manage, monitor, and scale clusters quickly and efficiently is the essential foundation that supports all our complex capabilities.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
