CK-12 Foundation is a not-for-profit EdTech on a mission to empower students and teachers worldwide by providing access to open educational content delivered through their AI-powered Student Tutor and Teacher Assistant.
“Our product feature set has grown significantly in the last decade. We have diverse datasets and workloads which serve millions of learners worldwide. We were in desperate need of anomaly detection of data egress on protected workloads. We couldn't find anything on the market to solve this for us. Writing our own solution was not possible due to time constraints. Enabling Lookout for Metrics immediately solved this issue for us and gave us insights into data usage that we never imagined. It also gave us the peace of mind that our protected workloads were being monitored for data egress anomalies.”
Dela Tsiagbe - DevOps Team Lead, CK-12 Foundation
More than 200 million paid Prime members worldwide can enjoy Prime Video’s vast collection of movies, series, and sports, all available to watch on hundreds of compatible devices at no additional cost to their membership.
“In 2020, PV launched a multi-phase initiative to understand customer in App behavior, with the end goal to improve offer clarity and help customers discover new content efficiently. Multiple PV Services log data for collecting and reporting aggregated customer journeys but the challenge was that data drops and anomalies in the volume went unnoticed since there were no alarms/mechanisms setup. We built Anomaly detection framework using Amazon Lookout for Metrics that monitors Prime Video Service’s Clickstream logs, which finds anomalies and determines their root causes at granular dimensions. Amazon Lookout for Metrics acts as a catch-all for advising service teams regarding unforeseen problems as they send data from their services to the Clickstream. Prior to Amazon Lookout for Metrics, it took us two weeks to identify issues that are now resolved within a day.”

Digitata intelligently transforms pricing and subscriber engagement for mobile operators, empowering operators to make better and more informed decisions to meet and exceed business objectives.
“At Digitata, what really matters is getting everyone connected at an affordable price. This requires a deep understanding of economics, specifically supply and demand and customer behavior according to changes in either,” said Nico Kruger, Chief Technology Officer, Digitata. “Using Lookout for Metrics we were able to discover an issue that was negatively impacting pricing for a Mobile Network Operator customer within minutes. We were able to instantly identify the culprit and roll out a fix within 2 hours. Without Lookout for Metrics, it would have taken us approximately a day to identify and triage the issue, and would have led to a 7.5% drop in customer revenue. Lookout for Metrics allows us to act quickly and ensure the optimal performance of our pricing models, leaving us to focus on what really matters - getting everyone connected.”

"At Flywire , our engineers rely on comprehensive monitoring systems and as we grow, they have become bombarded by false positive alerts that rob them of time as they chase down these bad leads. By leveraging Amazon Lookout for Metrics to parse events from CloudWatch we were able to go to production in an afternoon and reduce our false positive rate by 7x. This lets our Site Reliability Engineers focus on alerts with confidence and gives us the tools to tackle even more complex operational and business issues in the future."

DevFactory is a Dubai-based provider of software and services founded in 2008 that develops software solutions for global enterprises.
Quantum Retail offers intelligent retail-focused supply chain management and inventory optimization solutions to thousands of retail customers. Our customers have volatile sales data that is affected by millions of daily events across categories like stores, products, and departments which fluctuates according to yearly, monthly and daily seasonality. Understanding the sales patterns and separating anomalous sales from seasonal variations is critical to accurate forecasting and downstream inventory planning. Our existing solution relied on statistical models and often failed to detect anomalous sales behaviors across stores, leading to over or under allocation of inventory to stores, which in turn significantly impacted the overall revenue and customer satisfaction. With Lookout for metrics, we are able to automatically monitor data across all the important categories with a few clicks and identify anomalous events in nearly 40% cases that we missed earlier. By quickly identifying such cases, we are able to adjust our inventory planning and distribution across all stores in an optimal way.

Playrix is one of the leading mobile game developers in the world with a mission to bring joy to millions of people by creating high quality games like Township, Fishdom, and Gardenscapes.
“We have a lot of different types of data that are ingested and stored in diverse ways. Ensuring that our game systems run smoothly is challenging as there are many moving pieces—operating systems, app installs, ad clicks, user activity, and so much more. Monitoring all of this with manual thresholds is almost impossible to scale and requires a large effort from our teams. We wanted to easily analyze incidents, trigger automated actions to the proper teams when anomalies are found, and visualize the anomaly analysis in a dashboard that is easy to understand. After considering other third-party solutions, we've decided to move forward with Amazon Lookout for Metrics because it fits our infrastructure and our business needs. We have been extremely happy with the results after experimenting with Lookout for Metrics. We experimented with our user acquisition data to understand how the service works. It quickly identified and grouped anomalies enabling us to work faster and better. With Lookout for Metrics, we can quickly detect and analyze anomalies across a variety of data sources, trigger events if anomalies are found, and see the anomalies easily in the AWS console. Lookout for Metrics has saved our team many hours of manual investigation and now notifications are viewed as actionable rather than noise, allowing our teams to easily focus on strategic priorities with less technical overhead.”
Mikhail Artyugin - Technical Director, Playrix

We need a monitoring solution that can alert us to an unexpected change in our metrics but can also intelligently distinguish between hourly, daily and seasonal variations. We evaluated third party providers, but did not move forward based on the level of integration work required and results. After working with the Amazon Lookout for Metrics Team, we saw the improved accuracy that Lookout for Metrics can bring to our existing anomaly detection process and we are thrilled to start using the service.”
