Amazon has launched AWS Data Exchange, a subscription-based data service that gives customers access to datasets from third-party providers.
According to AWS, the Data Exchange has been developed to help customers overcome the common barriers they face when subscribing to third-party data, such as managing disparate billing relationships and licensing agreements with every data provider they use.
“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 Stephen Orban, General Manager of AWS Data Exchange. “AWS Data Exchange gives our customers the ability to quickly integrate third-party data in the workloads they’re migrating to the cloud while giving qualified data providers a modern and secure way to package, deliver, and reach the millions of AWS customers worldwide.”
The lean CDO: why it’s time to develop a minimum viable data product
CDOs can avoid failure by ditching project-centric operating models and behaving the way a lean startup would; applying the principles of minimum viable product to their data initiatives (minimum viable data product, if you will)
More than 1,000 products containing data are available in AWS Marketplace from more than 80 qualified data providers, including Reuters, Change Healthcare, Dun & Bradstreet, TransUnion, Foursquare, Pitney Bowes, and Virtusa.
AWS Data Exchange provides qualified data providers with daily, weekly, and monthly reports detailing subscription activity, and handles associated billing, payment collection, and secure delivery of data to subscribers.
