By Dan RitterSource: Fortune-TellingNews.comBy:Dan RitterThe company is building an automated data warehouse at its Seattle campus to allow its software engineers to quickly build data sets that will be used by its analytics department.
The data sets, called Commode, will be built using Amazon’s data warehouse, which is used for storing data from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk program.
Amazon said it plans to start building Commode this year, but only in the Seattle area.
Amazon also plans to hire a team of about 300 people, most of whom will be in Seattle, said Alex Filippi, an Amazon data scientist who helped build the warehouse.
Amazon plans to open up the data warehouse to other companies, he said.
Amazon is also building its own data analytics center at its headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.
The center will house Amazon’s huge data processing system, Amazon S3.
Amazon’s data analytics company, S3, is designed to be used for data warehousing and other purposes, and will be able to handle more than half of Amazon’s business, said David Wojcicki, Amazon data science head.
Amazon’s cloud storage is used to store all of its internal and external data, including product details, and other Amazon products.
The S3 data center, which will be open to the public, will help Amazon improve its data storage and analytics, Wojbinski said.
Wojbinksi said Amazon is also adding a team dedicated to creating custom data visualization tools.
That will include visualizations for the Amazon Prime Video service, which Amazon has said will allow customers to watch TV shows and movies for free.
Wajbinski also said Amazon has started using its own artificial intelligence and machine learning to run its own cloud service, called Spark.
Amazon has partnered with Google, Facebook and Microsoft to develop Spark, but it is not yet clear if the companies are developing its own software to use for Spark.
Amazon said its software teams will work together to build products and services that use Amazon’s technologies, but the company is not planning to release any of its products or services until 2020, Wajbinksisaid.
The company said its data warehouse will also allow Amazon to quickly test software to see how well it can process the volume of data coming in from its customers.
Amazon is testing its own version of Amazon S5, its business application, with a large customer base of about 200 million users.
The Amazon S7 business application is a smaller number of users, Amazon said.
The Seattle site is a natural fit for Amazon, which has been building its data center for years.
Amazon also built its data facility in San Jose, Calif., and is building its next data facility at its sprawling headquarters in downtown Seattle.
