Effective leaders rely on data to make informed decisions, look around corners, and take meaningful action. They build a modern data strategy to deliver insights to the people and applications that need it, securely and at any scale. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and D55 provide cost-effective ways to capture, store, and analyse your data, making it readily available across your organisation. With a comprehensive portfolio of purpose-built analytics solutions and machine learning technology, you can gain deeper insights from your data and improve operational efficiency.

Unify the best of both data lakes and purpose-built data stores. To make decisions quickly, you need new data stores that will scale and grow as business needs change. You also want to be able to connect everything together, including your data lake, data warehouse, and all the purpose-built data stores into a coherent system that is secure and well-governed. D55 and AWS can help you do this through the best of both data lakes and purpose-built data stores.

Machine learning is one of the most disruptive technologies of our generation. It can help create entirely new revenue opportunities, make better and faster decisions, or improve operational efficiencies. D55 and AWS meet you where you are in your journey with the broadest and most complete set of AI/ML services.

Machine Learning is coming to every sector and domain and it is going to be transformative. A modern data strategy allows you to leverage your data for ML and for advanced analytics, but what about how that data is generated? Many businesses find themselves with siloed data across both SAAS and bespoke applications. A lift and shift migration doesn't help here. You need to modernise your applications to be truly cloud-native in order to unlock these benefits.

Our cloud-native applications are event-driven and typically communicate via AWS EventBridge. They generate data and events that persist to the unified data lake and can are therefore available for analysis and Machine Learning. By aligning your whole architecture to gaining insights into your data we can truly exploit the power of cloud computing. D55 can give you a true step-change in capability across DevOps, Application Modernisation, Data Engineering and AI/ML.
