Hadoop is everywhere, also in the fashion e-commerce. We recently built a solution with a leader in fashion e-commerce to drive their visitor experience and provide a personalised view using recommendations.
In this presentation, we will walk through the architectural considerations and decisions made in building the solution on Microsoft Azure and especially in HDInsight (the Hadoop implementation as a platform as a service on Microsoft Azure), highlighting the following stages:
• Data Storage
• Data Ingestion
• Data Processing
• Validation & Troubleshooting
As we go through each stage, we present the technology options (both from the Microsoft Azure and Open Source stack) and our reasoning for selecting the optimal one in our case.
