In this talk, we explore Akamai's offering for analytics, the media context, the needs thereof, the technology & its evolution. Not to mention, the challenges of doing at at internet scale!
Analytics is an involving ask; the challenges are multi-fold. On one side, the technology required to handle huge data volumes, & on the other side, needs of the customer & domain which constantly evolve. Add to that, the demands of instantaneous data availability. In the course of developing an analytics solution for media consumption & then extending it to other domains (ex. security), we learnt a lot & this talk is all about sharing the same.
Here is how we will go about that talk -
An introduction to Akamai Media Analytics, the product & the domain
