This essentially enables businesses to adopt a data driven approach in solving problems and gaining deeper insights in data using the tools and processes of the IZAC “Data Exchange and Analytics Platform” and Microstrategy (Nasdaq: MISTR).

It is witnessed by a lot of companies that a robust Data Management landscape can help an organization boost its bottom line in prioritizing its sales and operational efforts. Efficient use of Decision Science has also led to more clarity in organization messaging and strategy. The joint solution will provide to Enterprises, a subscription based Intelligent Data Management As A Service, hosted on the SLT-Mobitel Akaza cloud platform. This solution will enable enterprises visualize data patterns, and apply predictive analytics to enable enterprises take timely decisions thereby making their business operations more efficient.
Commenting on the new offering from SLT-Mobitel, Mr. Janaka Abeysinghe, CEO of SLT said, “SLT-Mobitel recognizes that Data is the new ‘source of truth’ for the enterprise customers in terms of achieving sustainable growth and fueling new innovation. By engaging with SLT on the journey transcending Connectivity, Cloud and Data, we intend to take organizations in Sri Lanka to the next level of decision making using Data Virtualization, Analytics and AI tools of the Whiteklay platform, and, thus play a catalytic role in enterprise Digital Transformation”
Elaborating on this service, Amit Kumar Parija, CEO, Whiteklay Pte Ltd said, “The true value of data science will be realized only when you have a good data engineering stack. In today’s world, not having a strong data background should not be a deterrent for any organisation to get some quick insights from data. If a trend line can be spotted in the data, analysts should be able to ask the system as to ‘what changed?’ giving them the flexibility to slice and dice on the data at a real-time level and generate a dashboard as per their liking. If they don’t need the dashboard after a few days, they can discard or edit the same. But the fact is, deploying such systems inside any organisation’s environment takes a big effort from technology, strategy and finance teams. If the tech team isn’t that strong, then setting up the system and acquiring skills to manage and run the system takes a big pie out of the budget as well as time. This is where a lot of companies are looking to engage on getting ‘data exploration as a service’- hassle free big data exchange platform enabled at the click of a button.”
Commenting on this partnership, Roshan Rassool, CEO at Softlogic Information Technologies (Pvt) Ltd said that Sri Lankan business conditions have evolved rapidly, and today, companies face a new set of challenges that threaten their leadership positions.
