Macy’s Omni-Catalog – a real-time fast data story using Spark & Cassandra

Wed Feb 21 2018 18:30:00 GMT-0500 (EST)


Please join Big Data Atlanta & SMACK as we learn from the Macy’s leadership team about how they build a modern omnichannel catalog with continuously changing product attribution and availability in an era of "Big Data" and "Fast Data". It is one of the largest such catalog ever assembled in the retail industry, managing hundreds of millions of availability at UPC location level and billions of raw inventory combinations. All of these are done in real-time with a fast data architecture to keep the catalog up to date to serve online and in-store experience. You will hear from their lead architect and leadership about how they have leveraged messaging, in-memory database, Spark, and Cassandra to build this solution that spans the catalog across multiple data centers and the cloud to achieve resiliency and geo-redundancy.

This meet-up will take place at Macy's Technology Offices in John's Creek. Food and Drinks will be provided by the Macy's technology team. Casual Conversation from 6:30 to 7PM, Presentation will start @ 7PM. Look forward to seeing everyone on the 21st of February.
