Want to extract maximum value from your data? Here’s the simple way to achieve it.

Harness your data for big business opportunities


This cloud-based service brings together world leading analytic software, infrastructure, enterprise security and service management in one interoperable ready-to-deploy solution. It gives you advanced data gathering, storage and analytic features for fast and easy access to information that you wouldn’t normally be able to easily analyse. It’s intuitive and easy to use, and will help you meet the many challenges of fast-paced digital disruption. The Telstra Big Data Platform helps you bring together your people, processes and technology. It’s based around an affordable, transparent pricing model.

Is your organisation struggling to keep pace with a rapidly evolving information landscape? Today, businesses gather large amounts of valuable data that is either unstructured, structured in unfamiliar ways – or simply discarded. You may also be encountering the need to store exponentially growing data from social media, web and mobile devices. To stay ahead, you need ways to capture data effectively, and keep it at your fingertips.


If you’ve been using a traditional Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), you’re probably missing out on a lot of valuable information. We can offer you new ways to manage and analyse your data. For example, to maximise your business opportunities, you may want to:

  • Visualise your customer activities from past sales
  • Identify which customers are in danger of leaving
  • Develop highly targeted marketing or advertising campaigns
  • Move large amounts of data from expensive EDW storage
  • Be able to affordably scale up large-scale storage in future

Big Data Platform is designed to reduce complexity through:

  • Works with either structured or unstructured data
  • Advanced data gathering with enterprise grade security
  • Advanced Analytics software is included
  • Subscribe to the package that best fits your needs
  • Scale up as required, according to demand

Our Big Data Platform supports your business in collecting heavy data loads, in virtually any kind of format. You can then harness the combined data to gain deep insights – thanks to advanced analysis and visualisation tools. Compared to traditional methods, you’ll achieve faster data processing times, with lower storage and archiving costs.

This approach can provide you with a significant commercial advantage. You’ll acquire insights that can be used across your business. Applications include supply chain optimisation, customer churn analysis, fraud risk management and resource planning. The platform provides you with tools to:

Efficiently manage your data

Storage and processing
Extraction and access

How our Big Data Platform works

This platform uses an innovative blend of open-source and proprietary development. So it’s completely future-ready – being built around leading global technologies from Amazon Web Services and Cloudera Hadoop. It also means the platform is constantly evolving, so your team will always have access to the latest Big Data tools and apps.

Another feature is that it enables you to modernise your EDW (Enterprise Data Warehouse) capitalisation, by integrating it with the Big Data Platform to help reduce your operating and storage costs. This service provides you with a self-contained approach to big data tools – by packaging world-leading analytics software, infrastructure, enterprise security and service management. It’s fully managed, and supported, to suit business needs.


We’ve had great success deploying this platform, and it helped us win the 2016 Australian Business Award for Business Technology.
