To support this, we’ve created a platform that consists of many heterogeneous processes, microservices, pipelines, and data stores. Arguably, the most important aspect of the system is the data, especially the longitudinal data tracking and the projection of a path for growees. The challenge is making platform data accessible and reliable in a way that eliminates access contention, avoids high…
