Company	
November 2017
Weather Impacts Every
Consumer and Business TO BE
ESSENTIAL
Largest provider of atmosphere and
weather data globally
2nd largest location-based services
company – only Google Maps reaches
more
100 terabytes of third-party data, not
including our own proprietary data, is
ingested daily from more than 800
different data sources
From Research to Industry
WE ARE IN THE DECISION BUSINESS
There is something that every person and business can do about the
weather
WE ARE NOT IN THE WEATHER BUSINESS
From Research to Industry
•  2.2B
locations mapped
every 15 minutes
400TB
data processed
every day
45B
daily forecast calls
Sources: Qliksense internal report, April 2017; The
Weather Company internal data
The Weather Company
EMBRACED
THE COMPLEXITY OF BIG DATA
Processing more weather-based info than any other company
From Research to Industry
THERE ARE
LOTS OF
WEATHER
FORECASTS
From Research to Industry
BUT THE BEST
FORECAST USES
More than 162 models…
And is updated every 15 minutes
From Research to Industry
Deep Thunder:
Global high resolution weather prediction
using next-generation models
Our continued investment means continuous
improvement
•  Highest resolution global forecasts
for the day ahead
•  100M cell phone pressure
observations assimilated
•  Leverage IBM’s Power 9
Architecture
