The BIP (Business Intelligent Platform) department is key to provide adapted, reliable, secure and efficient data storage and data processing solutions for analytic applications.
The BI platform needs to be enhanced and industrialized improving the automation of DevOps activities or data science capabilities.
The BIplatform will become integral part of Cloud ecosystem and shall be deployed to public clouds such as GCE or AWS with Kubernetes.
Full automation of typical application and platform management activities : Platform deployment, stack upgrades, security integration, and all typical cluster maintenance activities.
Integration of the BI Platform on Cloud : we targeted fully automatic deployment to Amadeus owned IaaS platforms but also GCE and AWS, based on Kubernetes
Operation excellence, and expert support to operational and R&D teams
Providing guidelines and support to implement efficient Spark Jobs : Delivering expertise on properly writing a Spark Job to applicative developers is key to the success of the different projects.
In addition it contributes to manage efficiently the resources of the platform in order to minimize the hardware cost.
Providing ecosystem, tools and middleware for Analytics applications : We provide an ecosystem to leverage the BI platform, like for example continuous integration and deployment or monitoring.
There are also common patterns required by most of the analytics applications such as read / write from / to a Kafka topic, read / write from / to HDFS, filtering data etc.
Building expertise and anticipating evolution of Hadoop technologies : Mainly through open source initiatives, the Hadoop ecosystem is evolving pretty fast.
We are in charge to assess the impacts on these evolution to the BI Platform platform.
