At this month's ScalaX Bytes, we have OVO Energy's Thomas Kaliakos talking about data automation in the real world! Don't miss it
Companies today have massive treasure troves of data, but in order to provide value they must be in a position to transform and interrogate that data to get actionable information.
In OVO we have a lot of data: users that interact with our web and mobile apps, customer actions, but also (a lot of) smart meter readings!
In the following talk I will try to describe what we did in order to harness that stream of data, so that we have an environment where it will be easy to get useful business insights.
We will discuss how we used (and also plan to use!) technologies like Kafka, BigQuery, Airflow and Apache Beam.
