Intelligent search bot for enterprise document management systems

Simplify document search at scale with intelligent search bot on AWS

Enterprise document management systems (EDMS) manage the lifecycle and distribution of documents. They often rely on keyword-based search functionality. However, it increasingly becomes hard to discover documents as such repositories grow to tens of thousands of items. In this blog, we discuss how Amazon Web Services (AWS) built an intelligent search bot on top of […]

Example of a stateless architecture

Converting stateful application to stateless using AWS services

Designing a system to be either stateful or stateless is an important choice with tradeoffs regarding its performance and scalability. In a stateful system, data from one session is carried over to the next. A stateless system doesn’t preserve data between sessions and depends on external entities such as databases or cache to manage state. […]

Single-tenant configuration

AWS Cloud service considerations when modernizing account-per-tenant solutions

An increasing number of software as a service (SaaS) providers are modernizing their architectures to utilize resources more efficiently and reduce operational costs. There are multiple strategies that can be used when refining your multi-tenant architecture. This blog will look at a specific scenario where SaaS providers move from an account-per-tenant to an Amazon Elastic […]

X-ray images are sent to AWS HealthImaging and an Amazon SageMaker endpoint extracts insights.

Improving medical imaging workflows with AWS HealthImaging and SageMaker

Medical imaging plays a critical role in patient diagnosis and treatment planning in healthcare. However, healthcare providers face several challenges when it comes to managing, storing, and analyzing medical images. The process can be time-consuming, error-prone, and costly. There’s also a radiologist shortage across regions and healthcare systems, making the demand for this specialty increases […]

Technical architecture for implementing multi-lingual semantic search functionality

Content Repository for Unstructured Data with Multilingual Semantic Search: Part 2

Leveraging vast unstructured data poses challenges, particularly for global businesses needing cross-language data search. In Part 1 of this blog series, we built the architectural foundation for the content repository. The key component of Part 1 was the dynamic access control-based logic with a web UI to upload documents. In Part 2, we extend the […]

End-to-end data-processing architecture

Temporal data lake architecture for benchmark and indices analytics

Financial trading houses and stock exchanges generate enormous volumes of data in near real-time, making it difficult to perform bi-temporal calculations that yield accurate results. Achieving this requires a processing architecture that can handle large volumes of data during peak bursts, meet strict latency requirements, and scale according to incoming volumes. In this post, we’ll […]

In March 2023, IBM Consulting delivered an Innovation Hackathon in France, aimed at designing and building new innovative solutions for real customer use cases using the AWS Cloud. In this post, we briefly explore six of the solutions considered and demonstrate the AWS architectures created and implemented during the Hackathon. Hackathon solutions Solution 1: Optimize […]

AI/ML hybrid data access strategy reference architecture

Designing a hybrid AI/ML data access strategy with Amazon SageMaker

Over time, many enterprises have built an on-premises cluster of servers, accumulating data, and then procuring more servers and storage. They often begin their ML journey by experimenting locally on their laptops. Investment in artificial intelligence (AI) is at a different stage in every business organization. Some remain completely on-premises, others are hybrid (both on-premises […]

Serverless data archiving and retrieval

Reduce archive cost with serverless data archiving

For regulatory reasons, decommissioning core business systems in financial services and insurance (FSI) markets requires data to remain accessible years after the application is retired. Traditionally, FSI companies either outsourced data archiving to third-party service providers, which maintained application replicas, or purchased vendor software to query and visualize archival data. In this blog post, we […]

Architecture for AWS Clean Rooms Scope 3 collaboration

Managing data confidentiality for Scope 3 emissions using AWS Clean Rooms

Scope 3 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas emissions that are a result of a company’s activities, but occur outside the company’s direct control or ownership. Measuring these emissions requires collecting data from a wide range of external sources, like raw material suppliers, transportation providers, and other third parties. One of the main challenges with Scope […]
