The Weather Company has gone through a transformation over the past 4 years taking us from a Cable TV focused company to a Big Data Technology leader. The state of analytics also has undergone drastic changes to keep up with the business requirements. One of the biggest challenges in analytics is to make reasonable choices for a comprehensive suite of application development tools and storage solutions that enables the team to operate with more agility and speed. This presentation focuses on a powerhouse combination of Cassandra and Spark, which provides a high-speed platform for both real-time and batch analysis.
