Dow Jones Newswires is making a five-year archive of its English-language news available via Amazon Web Services’ AWS Data Exchange, which allows customers to find, subscribe to, and use third-party data in the cloud. The initiative aims to simplify and accelerate access to Dow Jones news content for AWS clients in the hope of exploiting the growing appetite for cloud hosting among capital markets firms.
The collaboration with AWS allows consumers to use Dow Jones’s metadata to integrate the newswire’s content with other data sets and tools within their broader AWS portfolio. The arrangement with AWS includes an archive of news items from Dow Jones Newswires, The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and MarketWatch, covering five years of headlines and articles. The archive includes news across asset classes and key regions and markets worldwide.
According to Stephen Orban, general manager of AWS Data Exchange, Dow Jones’ content will help data scientists and other users “to uncover patterns and signals, helping them to better manage risk and spot new opportunities [and] combine the content with their existing data and processes running on AWS.”
