“Ride hailing is more than just an app – there’s a lot going on in the
background that leads to great experiences for both the passenger and
driver,” said Ditesh Gathani, Director of Engineering at Grab. “Grab’s
business thrives because of our ability to manage a continuous stream of
data that facilitates real-time matching, booking, payment and location
services. iguazio will enable us to continue offering new innovative
services at a faster time to market.”

By selecting iguazio’s Unified Data Platform, Grab is innovating a
variety of applications, such as:

  • Driver incentives to determine driver bonuses in real-time, by
    analyzing and increasing driver effectiveness, the number of runs
    during peak driving times and rider satisfaction.
  • Maximize driver profits while reducing passenger wait times by
    optimizing driver the decision-making process using advanced real-time
    supply and demand heatmaps.
  • Surge pricing optimization which correlates passenger demand data with
    external data sources, such as news, weather and social media.

“Grab is a great example of a client that benefits from the iguazio
Unified Data Platform to the fullest,” said Asaf Somekh, CEO of iguazio.
“iguazio provides Grab with unique value by enabling continuous
analytics and event-driven applications while eliminating the complexity
of Grab’s data pipeline.”
