Detailed Use Case: Experiences from building a streaming-ready hybrid data platform for Customer Analytics at dm

At dm as one of Germany’s biggest drugstores, all aspects of the customers’ needs play a crucial role. In order to identify and address these needs in a more precise and timely manner, the department of Customer Experience & Analytics (CXA) at dm is extending its platform by components which allow for large-scale and event-driven analytics approach by combining multiple online and offline touchpoint data sources. A key requirement for the new components is to integrate seamlessly with existing enterprise and cloud infrastructure, like an on-premise data warehouse and a cloud-based marketing solution. In this talk, we highlight the architectural challenges and decisions, and describe our current solution based on Apache Hadoop, Spark, Nifi and the Confluent Platform. Hereby we pay special attention to the steps taken towards productive usage in real-world usecases, especially regarding development, deployment, monitoring and high availability. We close the talk by highlighting current and future customer-facing applications which are enabled by the new platform.
