Customers Using AWS Data Exchange

Investics logo
“At Accenture, we’ve been creating a platform to support our clients that are facing supply chain instability due to workforce, climate, pandemic, or social impacts. Building resiliency requires visibility into labor, weather, commodities, Tier N challenges and real-time inputs from suppliers in a collaborative environment. Using AWS Data Exchange, we are able to quickly consume the most up-to-date data to inform our models, like the news and sentiment data from Amenity Analytics. This allows us to create predictive insights into early supply chain risk factors, simulate what-if scenarios to minimize costs and delays, and automatically adjust to supplier disruptions in real time."

– Prasad Satyavolu; Lead – Industry X Manufacturing and Operations North America

Investics logo
“At Capgemini we are committed to unleashing the power of purpose-driven growth for financial services organizations through innovative data-driven products and services based on ESG principles. Leveraging AWS Data Exchange to consume Arabesque’s ESG data enables us to deliver intelligent ESG solutions with hyper-personalization to drive sustainable banking and investing for retail customers faster and easier than ever before.”

-Tej Vakta, Head of ESG Solutions, Financial Services Insights & Data, Capgemini

Investics logo
"Using AWS Data Exchange allows us to easily consume and use Arabesque S-Ray data in the Investics Cloud Ecosystem (ICE), our AWS- based investment data and analytics ecosystem. With ICE, we stitch together the robust ESG data from Arabesque S-Ray, with client portfolio information, and our investment analysis data to provide asset, portfolio and sector-level sustainability metrics. We then use AWS Data Exchange to distribute the final product, Investics DARTS, to AWS customers. Institutional asset managers and asset owners can license Investics DARTS data via AWS Data Exchange and programmatically receive daily updates, enabling them to easily monitor ESG compliance and performance metrics on their entire investment portfolio." 

-William Pryor, President of Investics

UT Austin
At Neuravest, our core business is applying machine learning to non-traditional datasets and creating investment portfolios based on the resulting insights— all on behalf of our asset management customers. We are excited to develop new environmental, social and governance (ESG) solutions for our customers by applying our machine learning expertise to Arabesque S-Ray data. With AWS Data Exchange, we can quickly source high quality machine-readable ESG datasets, and easily integrate them into our solutions - many of which already run on AWS.

-Erez Katz, Co-Founder and CEO, Neuravest

PG Ventures
"At PG Ventures, we set out to solve a very specific problem: How to identify the risks in soil relocation from underground mining activities in Central Europe. CATALYST Insights, a Canadian Earth observation company, provided us with the ground displacement data we needed to uncover these man-made disasters. We use AWS Data Exchange to consume CATALYST’s Insights data, which supports planning for immediate and future impacts as coal mining slows globally as a result of carbon neutral requirements. The flexibility of CATALYST's services, combined with the ease of licensing their data via AWS Data Exchange, has enabled us to start mitigating these mining collapses and prevent future damage.”

-Christoph Schmidt, Co-Founder, PG Ventures

“During the Code Green Hack-a-Thon at re:Invent 2021, we set out to make a mapping tool that shows the communities that have the greatest current and forecasted need for improvements to their water supplies, air quality, and waste management. We used Crux data products through AWS Data Exchange, which allowed us to quickly cleanse and prepare the data via the AWS Glue integration, and uploaded it to our Amazon S3 buckets. From there, we started to build a model using Amazon SageMaker that we then piped into a visualization tool. Using AWS Data Exchange saved us time in collaborating and formulating data processes and helped us focus on the application itself.”

– Isaac Trevino, Hack-a-thon participant, and Software Developer

Using ESG data from AWS Data Exchange in Amazon FinSpace

ESG is broadly defined as a set of non-financial criteria or metrics that reflect how a company performs as a steward of nature how a company manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers and communities, and how a company puts in place the right leadership and internal control.

What is the difference between AWS Data Exchange and the Registry of Open Data on AWS?

There are five key differences between AWS Data Exchange and the Registry of Open Data on AWS:

  1. AWS Data Exchange supports both free and commercial data products, with any applicable commercial fees applied to a customer’s AWS invoice, whereas the Registry of Open Data on AWS gives customers access to a curated list of free and open data sets.
  2. AWS Data Exchange requires customers to explicitly agree to the Data Subscription Agreement outlining the terms that the data provider set when publishing their product, whereas the data on the Registry of Open Data on AWS does not have terms of use.
  3. Customers must use the AWS Data Exchange API to copy data from AWS Data Exchange to their desired S3 location, whereas the Registry of Open Data on AWS data sets are accessed via S3 APIs.
  4. AWS Data Exchange delivers data providers access to daily, weekly and monthly reports detailing subscription activity, whereas with Registry of Open Data on AWS, data providers must analyze their own logs to track usage of data.
  5. To become a data provider on AWS Data Exchange, qualified customers must register as a data provider on AWS Marketplace to be eligible to list both free and commercial products, whereas any customer can add free data to Registry of Open Data on AWS via GitHub and may apply to the AWS Public Dataset Program for AWS to sponsor the costs of storage and bandwidth for select open data sets.
