Architecting the Big Data Portal at Netflix


Netflix’s Big Data Platform enables the company to leverage our data warehouse to make informed data driven decisions. Initial consumers of data were highly technical and could leverage tools targeted primarily at an engineering audience. Over the last few years our employee user base has also grown dramatically. Our most frequent users come from DEI, S&A, and Product, but the number of users vary widely across organizations ranging from Content, Studio, Finance, Legal, Marketing, Customer Service and HR. As the diversity and needs of the platform users grew, the complexity of interacting with the Data Platform grew as well. This talk would describe the evolution of building features like commenting, subscriptions, collections, and recommendations that made it easier for our users to manage and interact with the data platform.
