A Retrospective on Building and Running Atlassian’s Data Lake

YOW! Data 2018

Atlassian’s strives to be a data driven company that builds collaborative software for teams. Two and a half years ago we launched our analytics platform (i.e. data lake) on AWS which is used by over 1500 internal users each month to gain insights and enforce decisions.

In this talk we will present a retrospective on our analytics platform covering our blessings (what went well) and our mistakes (what could have been better) as well as talking about what potential next steps we might take to further improve the platform.

This talk will cover both the technical aspect (i.e. architectural choices) as well as non-technical aspect (i.e. team organisation, our principals and mandate).
