MyFitnessPal needed to deliver a new feature called “Verified Foods.” The feature demanded a faster pipeline to execute a number of highly sophisticated algorithms. Their legacy non-distributed Java-based data pipeline was slow, did not scale, and lacked flexibility.
MyFitnessPal chose Databricks to harness the power of Apache® Spark™ and to build the data pipeline for “Verified Foods” to successfully deliver the feature to their users while gaining many additional benefits.
- Implementation of a new feature called “Verified Foods” to provide more accurate nutrition information.
- Ten-fold speed improvement over previous data pipeline implementation.
- Four times more projects completed in the past quarter resulting from an increase in team productivity.
- Improved team efficiency achieved through accessible advanced analytics and better code re-use.
