Skyline Communications, provider of vendor- and domain-agnostic digital transformation platforms, is rolling out a wealth of new DataMiner solutions. These will enable operators within the ICT media and broadband industry to increase their value proposition in a new data-driven and cloudified future.
The key ingredients for this new generation of DataMiner solutions are collaboration, cloud, artificial intelligence, orchestration, and process automation. Moreover, all these features are built on a sophisticated data acquisition and control plane. This fundamental layer ensures that you can easily integrate with new data sources and products at any point in time, and that you can do this in a scalable manner, without any impact on the entire software stack on top.
“While there’s a lot to be said about the very exciting features and capabilities of each of these solutions individually, the real power and value comes when you combine them. Each solution amplifies the value of the others because of the way they have been integrated by design,” commented Ben Vandenberghe, CEO at Skyline Communications. “This mirrors the transformation we see in the world around us, where there is also a culmination of various individual technology innovations.”
The need for innovation
Like many other industries, the media and broadband industry is constantly evolving because of changing business models, changing working habits, changing consumer behaviour and expectations, and, of course, changing technologies. However, these new, transformational technologies aren’t only part of the solution, they also pose many new challenges to data-driven businesses.
“The redefining nature of the technology evolutions emerging across the industry over the past years made it clear that our users would soon be facing an entirely new set of challenges, and they would crave innovative solutions to deal with this,” continued Ben Vandenberghe. “Just look at the ever-growing underlying complexity of an operation, the indispensable need to continuously evolve workflows, the far more distributed makeup of a typical operation, the ever-increasing risks related to cyber security, and the strategic need to run an operation across multiple cloud platforms and technology domains.”
That’s why, for several years now, Skyline has been meticulously designing and developing the foundations for some very ambitious innovations that can ensure DataMiner users will deliver exceptional ICT media and broadband services to their customers. “These innovations will truly redefine how our users manage their next-gen operation end to end, straight across all vendor, domain and technology boundaries, and across resources on the ground and in the cloud,” according to Ben Vandenberghe.
Transformation through innovation
Over the past years, Skyline has earned a strong reputation of being innovative. And now, as a culmination of all these efforts, the company can boast a truly transformational platform. Out of the box and by design, DataMiner addresses key challenges, such as security, complexity, and multi-cloud architecture. At the same time, it also provides a pronounced open architecture with powerful enabling capabilities that empower users to evolve easily and continuously.
“In that sense, DataMiner has become one of the most valuable strategic assets for our users, as it enables them to tap into the full potential of all the other underlying transformational technologies, such as cloud, virtualised products, all-IP, and much more,” concluded Ben.
