Truecaller, GetInData and Google’s contribution to Big Data Tech Warsaw Summit
GetInData, Google and Truecaller participate in the Big Data Tech Warsaw Summit 2019.
It’s already less than two weeks to the 5th edition of Big Data Warsaw Tech Summit! How time flies! The initiating coverage of this event you may find here, but today we’ll walk you through the presentation that will be delivered by our colleagues from Truecaller and will also shed some light on the GetInData’s contribution to the Summit and its joint initiative with Google. Enjoy!
Truecaller, GetInData’s long-lasting client, is a Swedish tech company that innovates how people call over phone. Truecaller has created one of the most popular caller ID and phone spam protection app. The app has over 100 million daily active users globally (growing!), runs a petabyte-scale infrastructure and contains several features powered by data & ML/AI such as spam detection. Dhanesh Padmanabhan, their Director of Engineering, will deliver a speech on Truecaller’s analytics stack and their data-driven use-cases deployed on the top of Kafka, Spark, Hadoop that support the company’s core activities.
Krzysztof Zarzycki and Marek Wiewiórka, who are our most experienced Big Data veterans at GetInData, will discuss the future-proof, cloud-ready and open-source big data discovery platform. As this may sound a little bit vague, I will briefly walk you through it. As GetInData works all the time on Big Data platforms with many clients, we are able to spot their bottlenecks and inefficiencies. This time my fellow colleagues will take a look at Data Lake. At most companies, Data Lake becomes a controlled environment with strict service level agreements and strong guarantees where there is no room for creativity and experiments that drives the unique, cutting-edge and innovative data science projects. Krzysztof and Marek will explain how this problem may be addressed by a modern open-source data discovery platform, built next to existing Data Lake — the Data Discovery platform. Consider it as a cloud-ready open-source-based extension to Data Lake, that gives freedom of processing power and libraries choice and seamless data access, without lock-in.
