Transforming Data into a Valuable Asset

Our customers include some of Australia’s leading large and medium enterprises across all industry sectors.
Since 2008, Infoready has focused on designing and implementing solutions that enable organisations to harness data for their competitive advantage. Partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides the broadest range of infrastructure, platform, and application-level services, and the deepest set of managed services for data lakes and analytics, to help build virtually any big data application in the Cloud. This enables Infoready not only to support the needs of its customers, but to leverage production-grade AWS cloud services and tools to innovate on behalf of its customer base and accelerate delivery to transform businesses.
Why Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Infoready and AWS jointly developed the Cloud Analytics Platform to provide an end-to-end ingestion to analytics solution. Automated using Infoready’s proprietary scripts, it leverages AWS’s robust and secure services, delivering governance from the first point of data ingestion to output. This approach reduces the time required to provision the platform, minimises the risk of error, and provides confidence that the data is secure and only accessible by authorised users. Configured for each client according to a set of predefined patterns and frameworks, based on years of industry experience, Infoready’s approach accelerates the configuration of the platform to the specific requirements of the project, reducing time to value.
Once the platform is set up and running in AWS, Infoready offers a managed service including service desk, maintenance and support, and security and service management. These services are available under a range of commercial models from pass-through billing to an outcome-based model where the customer can gain the benefits of a fixed monthly fee, and Infoready uses its knowledge and skills with AWS to guarantee the outcome.
Infoready teams have delivered numerous big data projects on AWS, ranging from Proof of Concepts (PoC) to get our clients started on a big data journey, through to production-hardened customer behaviour analytics.
