Telkomsel, Indonesia’s largest telecommunications company has selected Kinetica, the engine for the Extreme Data Economy, because of its ability to act as a converged engine for accelerated analytics, location-based visualization and artificial intelligence.

In doing so, Telkomsel will be able to deliver transformative data-driven customer experiences and drive real-time financial and business reporting.

As new technologies and data sources proliferate, data has never been as unpredictable and analysis as complex, said Kinetics. In the new Extreme Data Economy, data may be big or small, static or streaming, structured or unstructured, long-lived or perishable, human or machine. Siloed legacy databases built for serial computing can’t keep up in a world where insights need to be nearly instantaneous.

What is needed is a capability that enables customers to build a new class of data-driven applications to address these challenges. Kinetica’s instant insight engine runs on NVIDIA GPUs and NVIDIA DGX systems which provide real-time analytics on data — in motion and at rest — 10 to 100X faster than traditional systems, and at one-tenth of the cost.

Montgomery Hong, CIO, Telkomsel
Unlike traditional database solutions, the Kinetica engine is purpose-built for extreme data and provides real-time data analysis and location intelligence across our business, from Prepaid and Postpaid mobile, to Digital Lifestyle Services (Video, Gaming, Music), to Mobile Financial Services, and Digital Advertising for starters.

Paul Appleby, CEO, Kinetica
Data is central to digital lifestyle experiences and mobile businesses can no longer rely on legacy big data platforms analyzing data after the fact. As companies such as Telkomsel get digitally transformed, they will need to embrace new applications that combine streaming IoT, advanced analytics, and the power of AI in a converged solution.
