For Beinex, being a custodian of data engineering and data analytics technologies, presence of AWS in UAE offers a plethora of opportunities for customers in terms of:

(a) Drawing customer centricity and confidence in data related services increasing productivity

(b) Building highly scalable and efficient data lakes/data warehouses/data marts to create ‘center of excellences in data’

(c) One-stop unified data access, security and governance using AWS data stack, thereby removing multiple overheads and solutions

(d) Building and deploying ML models and integrating with analytics services creating business far-sightedness

(e) Reducing time to market taken by “product based” data analytics solution to blazing fast AWS services boosting innovation

The new AWS Middle East (UAE) Region consists of three Availability Zones (AZs) and becomes AWS’s second region in the Middle East with the existing AWS Region in Bahrain, launched in 2019. The new AWS Region gives organizations even greater choice for running their applications and serving end users from data centers located in the UAE, using advanced AWS technologies to drive innovation.

AWS Regions are composed of Availability Zones that place infrastructure in separate and distinct geographic locations. Availability Zones are located far enough from each other to support customers’ business continuity but near enough to provide low latency for high availability applications that use multiple Availability Zones.

Each Availability Zone has independent power, cooling, and physical security and is connected through redundant, ultra-low latency networks. AWS customers focused on high availability can design their applications to run in multiple Availability Zones to achieve even greater fault tolerance. The launch of the AWS Middle East (UAE) Region will enable local customers with data residency requirements to store data securely in the UAE, while providing customers with even lower latency across the country.

Beinex has prescriptive and predictive data analytics product suites comprising of a mix of services (Redshift, S3, Glue, Athena, Kinesis, EMR etc.) customized along with BI viz platform apps like Tableau & Alteryx, all on the AWS platform. Beinex is also competent in data innovation using AI/ ML stack with Amazon Sagemaker.

The firm is a preferred partner of Aurex, a SaaS based GRC solution. The company has capabilities in data engineering technologies like data ingestion, data lakes, ETL & data transformation, data visualization and AI/ ML models leading to insights generation platforms.

The launch of AWS Middle East (UAE) Region will catalytically encourage the Public Sector to shift to Cloud in a big way. It will drastically alter the way business is conducted in that realm, providing an added boost to the entire region. Besides, the AWS range of services characterized by AI-ML capabilities will facilitate ease of living and convenience in all walks of life across the society.
