Slides from Michelle Ufford's talk, Data-Driven @ Netflix. Talk given at PASS Summit 2016 in October 2016.
Netflix is the quintessential data-driven company. It’s 83 million members stream more than 125 million hours in over 190 countries every day and generate more than 700 billion events in the process. In this session, we’ll share how data is used to make informed decisions across the entire business — from content acquisition to content delivery, and everything in between. We’ll look at how Netflix successfully employs a scalable cloud-based data platform to support a constant deluge of data and a small army of data analysts, engineers, and scientists. We’ll discuss the advanced analytical capabilities that are enabled through modern data technologies. Lastly, we’ll explore some of the architectural & operational principals that enable Netflix to so effectively make use of its data.
