Rackspace Technology is partnering with Blackline Safety (BLN) to drive software innovation and support its contact tracing solution.

Blackline engaged with Onica, a Rackspace company and AWS Premier Consulting Partner, to begin this work.

Blackline needed a partner with big data expertise that could re-architect its platform for faster scaling and real-time data processing. It also required resources to build a data lake to support new industrial contact tracing reports and visualizations. Rackspace made for an ideal collaborator on both counts.

John Moura, Blackline's Director of Software Development and Operations, commented,

"In this period of accelerated growth, it was becoming difficult to balance critical software innovation with the need to grow our team while simultaneously managing critical improvements to our platform.

We knew that investing in our cloud infrastructure would support our next phase of growth, but it was critical to select the right partner with deep experience and a proven track record. We found that partner with Rackspace Technology."

Rackspace worked with Blackline to migrate its conventional data ingestion and storage system to a modern infrastructure on AWS.

Rackspace also implemented a solution using Amazon Kinesis and Amazon EMR to collect data from Blackline’s G7 devices via integrated cellular and satellite connectivity.

The immediate impact here is higher data rate reporting from connected wearables, helping Blackline clients make informed, data-driven decisions about their businesses.

The collaboration also focused on developing Blackline's industrial contact tracing infrastructure. The solution provides automated visualizations that highlight close interactions between employees over designated periods of time.

Jeff Deverter, CTO at Rackspace Technology, commented,

"We’re proud of our work with Blackline Safety to improve its operations and contribute to a solution that protects workers while combating COVID-19’s spread.

Rackspace Technology was the ideal collaborator to help Blackline Safety migrate from its conventional data ingestion and database storage to a contemporary infrastructure on AWS.

This new architecture has increased the quality of insights Blackline is able to deliver to clients and immediately supports Blackline’s explosive growth and unlocks future innovation for the company."

Rackspace Technology is an end-to-end multicloud technology services company. 

Blackline Safety provides wearable safety technology, personal and area gas monitoring, cloud-connected software, data science services and data analytics to leading enterprises around the world.

Blackline Safety (BLN) is down 2.29 per cent and is currently trading at C$8.10 per share as of 1:13 pm ET.
