Co-created market research platform
The platform was created in partnership with leading digital partners using Azure cloud ecosystem, Databricks, Power BI, Python, Java, and tools such as Azure DevOps within the agile methodology.
This platform provides an end-to-end view, combining digital and traditional data, which is helping to manage the challenge in terms of media consumption fragmentation (people watching content on many different devices and platforms, making measurement more difficult).
Replatforming a Data Center
We helped with the migration of on-premises Data Center processing to Azure cloud. The processing clusters to be migrated employ resources of more than 2,000 CPUs to process 150000 events/second (more than 2,000 million requests per day).
The challenge was to find the right architecture to deal with the volume of data, at an attractive cost. Our strategic partnership with Microsoft facilitated discussions, as we could benefit from the latest evolutions of Azure Cloud and related technologies (Databricks, Data Lake, using Spark queries).
We aim to bring out the best in you, while helping you do the same for others.
As a company focused on human understanding, it’s imperative we reflect the world we live in. We celebrate and support the differences of our people. Kantar is a global company with a local feel. While we have global initiatives to bring us together – like our partnership with Special Olympics and virtual interest groups on plenty of topics – we also enjoy regular local events, from football teams and yoga clubs to choirs and local celebrations. You also get two days off each year to volunteer for a cause you feel passionately about. Find out more about life at Kantar here.
