Ever since ImmoScout was founded, we are crossing technical frontiers.
When we migrated fully to the cloud in 2015 and 2016, we were the pioneers. When data engineering infrastructure became famous, we already had years of experience building a data platform and when Data Mesh became popular, we already had something similar in place for almost five years. Only by introducing new terms like data democratization, data culture, etc. data platforms do not scale.
We are happy to share with you our learnings, failures and success of building a custom data platform since 2015.
Arvid Reiche is a hands-on data platform leader. He is optimizing concepts around data that fit into the company’s strategy and capability instead of optimizing a company to fit into a concept that reads nicely about data. His distinctive approach is to build custom in-house solutions and to use code as infrastructure. In the last years he innovated Scout’s data platform by empowering customer and consumers, helping the organization to transit into a truely data-driven company.
