On the 21st and 22nd of November 2016 the TDWI and the Institute of Information Management of the University of St. Gallen(IWI HSG) presents the DW conference in Zurich. Given that the conference is known for their renowned speakers, Dr. Martin Fengler was invited to inform about real-time integration of weather data in existing business processes.

Fast acquisition and computation of data is the key element for many business processes, no matter whether we are dealing with data from weather stations and forecasting, or even satellite and radar images. The Meteomatics Weather-API provides the required parameters like temperature, wind and precipitation. One factor of success is the response time because data can be requested via the API in real-time. As the user-friendliness is our main target, the data is available in multiple formats and can be easily integrated in existing workflows.
