Operata Cloud Collector Overview

What is Operata Cloud Collector?

Operata Cloud Collector collects relevant contact and performance metadata for your Customers interactions within Amazon Connect and securely sends this data to the Operata Platform.

This data is correlated with both softphone performance metrics and other events collected for the lifecycle for the interaction.

This end-to-end view is presented inside the Operata UI with rich visualisations providing clear insights, powerful reporting, learning and alerting.

How Cloud Collector Works

Operata Cloud Collector Architecture OverviewOperata Cloud Collector Architecture Overview

Operata Cloud Collector Architecture Overview

At the heart of Cloud Collector is a pre-built Lambda function provided by Operata which is implemented within your AWS instance using CloudFormation.

This Lambda function is fully configurable to ensure you are in total control of what data is sent to Operata.

Cloud Collector monitors your Amazon Connect instance for new or updated Contact Flow Logs (delivered to CloudWatch) and Contact Trace Records (delivered via Kinesis).

The data is securely shipped to the Operata platform via HTTPS, using SHA-256 with RSA Encryption.
