EveryMundo’s big data aggregation solution, DataCore, heavily uses Spark to process and serve real-time airline pricing and user route search behavior to create airline-focused marketing automation software for airlines worldwide. In this session, EveryMundo will present the challenges they have faced in collecting and distributing real-time airline pricing data from over 20 international carriers across multiple currencies. They will showcase how Apache Spark is at the center of their data ecosystem, and how it has transformed how they output marketing automation products to the airline industry.

This talk will showcase a timeline of how DataCore evolved and how Spark and AWS solutions have become the pillars of data processing and data visibility for our whole company. We have managed to give access and visibility to our data to our entire company, which foments new product creation, product improvements and interdepartmental collaboration. This is all predicated on the speed and stability that Spark has provided for our data streaming, availability, visualization and calculation requirements.
