The platform is built on a number of open-source Apache technologies including Hadoop, HBase and Cassandra, as well as the Kiji open-source project framework for collecting, analyzing and serving data in real time. Earlier this year the startup released WibiRetail, the company's first out-of-the-box application for retailers.
