How can you go from static reporting in Excel with yesterday’s data to an architecture where we can present advanced analytics in real-time. We will focus on how we built our platform with Databricks Delta Live Tables and streaming data, the value we get from Databricks vs. a traditional RDBMS stack, and how end-users interact with data using ThoughtSpot and Power BI. Our goal was to enable Europris – Norway's #1 discount variety retailer to use a “self-service concept” for reports and analytics.

The session will have tips and tricks on how-to ingest, process, and structure data for optimal usage and visualisation. With our stack, 280 store managers, a previously underserved group from a data perspective, and 80 analysts interact with data monthly.
