Tapad Turns to the Lightbend Platform
In an effort to deliver a robust system that would enable marketers and advertisers to consistently reach consumers across multiple devices, Tapad selected the Typesafe Platform to accomplish this monumental task. Tapad has proven to be a leader in cross-screen advertising technology, adddressing the new and ever-evolving reality of media consumption on smartphones, tablets and home computers. There were three main technical reasons that drove the reasoning behind choosing Scala and the Lightbend Platform:
- Statically typed tooling.
- It ran on a standard JVM container.
- The Actor model is a very good fit for solving some problems in a high frequency, high throughput system with lots of stateful decisions and heavy concurrent access to mutable state.
