Caylent leads with a “do with” approach, creating new data products using AWS

With the opportunities to generate change, companies constantly want to develop new sources of revenue and new products using data.

The explosion of data has raised significant challenges, including recruiting the right talent to effectively perform the work required. Using a “do with” approach, Caylent Inc. empowers organizations to empower their people and processes to improve understanding and monetization of data, according to Valerie Henderson (pictured, right), Caylent’s chief revenue officer.

“The whole model from a service perspective is not a ‘do for’ model; it’s a ‘do with’ model,” Henderson said. “Every time we walk into a client, it’s like, where are they on the curve? The way our model works is we do it with them, and if we’re not there, they’re going to be able to sue it. and keep doing more.

Henderson and Etienne Garden (pictured, left), executive chairman of Caylent, spoke with industry analysts theCUBE furry jeans and Lisa Martin to AWS Summit event in New York, during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed how Caylent enables businesses to leverage Amazon Web Services Inc. for improved data insights and monetization. (*Disclosure below.)

Data sharing as a springboard to more innovation

Significant innovations are being sparked in the cloud through enhanced collaboration-based data sharing. Therefore, AWS makes this possible, given that even Snowflake has built a data cloud on it, according to Garden.

“I think the other trend we’re seeing more recently in data is that customers need to share their information with other partners,” he said. “AWS is just the perfect platform to be able to do that, to enable that sharing. So I think that’s a new angle that we’re seeing that really brings together a lot more innovation.

As data continues to grow exponentially, it has become more relevant in the modern world. As a result, the data has created new opportunities that need to be exploited, Garden added.

“Four or five years ago there was a statistic about…we take more photos in a single year now than all of humanity up to this date,” he pointed out. “I think the quantities and the way people manage them now provide a much greater opportunity to be able to think and make decisions accordingly.”

The Caylent-AWS partnership helps solve DevOps issues, including getting data from applications. Additionally, DevOps retooling becomes possible, which triggers more growth, according to Henderson.

“One of our customers, Allergan, which is an amazing organization, has really made a big effort to modernize,” she explained. “They actually have a data lab within their company called Allergan Data Labs, and they’ve leveraged us to really modernize that containerization effort. From my perspective, what we’re also seeing is that there’s a need to think about DevOps retooling and tooling because talent wants to work with the best set of tools.

Founded in 2015 as a container management product, Caylent has grown into a cloud-native consulting company. Therefore, the collaboration with AWS made it a reality, according to Garden.

“Our roots are very deeply rooted in cloud native,” he said. “In fact, we were just named AWS Premier Partner a few weeks ago. Our goal is really to work with customers who are looking to innovate, scale and use AWS.

The modern cloud era requires thinking about business outcomes and data points. As a result, automation becomes fundamental, according to Garden.

“I think it’s around automation…a fundamental principle of the cloud is that consistency in that repeatability,” he noted. “So when you can simplify services to a point, click, deploy, I think you’re in a much better position to be able to move quickly and not have to worry about anything under the hood and you focus only on business results.”
