HERE Technologies (HERE) has disclosed that AWS is its preferred cloud infrastructure provider.
HERE has been using AWS for its core infrastructure and applications for several years, assisting HERE through the rapid growth in its business. This year, HERE is introducing its first location services that collect and use real-time sensor data from connected vehicles, including brands like Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz. The services, built on the HERE Open Location Platform, will provide information on traffic conditions, potential road hazards, traffic signage, and on-street parking to help reduce traffic congestion and accidents, and make driving safer and more enjoyable for people around the world.
HERE is also developing new location services to serve a range of other industries, including the broader transportation and logistics sectors, as well as infrastructure, manufacturing, retail, and advertising technology.
