"HPI meets..." Blue Yonder

Blue Yonder, as the leading provider of cloud-based predictive applications for retail, enables retailers to take a transformative approach to their core processes by adopting a data-driven approach to decision making.

Every day, Blue Yonder delivers decisions to its customers that boost revenues, increase margins and enable rapid responses to changing market dynamics.

Blue Yonder’s replenishment and pricing solutions are driven by sophisticated machine learning algorithms, developed by one of the largest team of PhD-level data scientists in retail.

In this tech talk, Prof. Michael Feindt (Founder) and Jan Karstens (CTO Blue Yonder, HPI Alumnus) will give insights into how Blue Yonder came into existence, details on our data science background, and some insights into our technology stack for highly scalable and reliable machine learning. We will cover some major decisions made along the journey (Linux, Python, scikit-learn, C++, Mesos), and the challenges ahead. You will hear about “why decisions matter, and why data is always crap”, “why software sucks; as soon as you start using it in production” and what to do about it. And, most importantly, if software is eating the world, how do you build and grow a great engineering team by doing stuff close-by software behemoths can hardly copy.
