Evolution of the Analytics estate at easyJet has been gradual over the years, with constraints on investment in analytics and overall data management in recent years, business demand has now led to two worlds of analytics that have data siloes within them and two micro-organisations with very different ways of working both delivering business intelligence and analytics.

In order to truly achieve the vision of the “most data driven airline in the world” an evolutionary approach to platform architecture, engineering delivery and data product ownership has been necessary.

As well as a substantial investment into a technology easyJet have reengineered the approach to delivery and integration of IT with data science, analytics and business communities.

Layering of technology has allowed the Datahub become increasingly integrated into the heart of organisation with a role as part of the Enterprise Integration services as well as analytics and Data products.

This talk explains how taking a product-centric approach to collaborating on data engineering and laying out an evolutionary hub architecture enabled our core strategy using Cloudera EDH and the power of Amazon Web Services.
