    Clink was a financial data marketing platform for financial institutions to monetize their transactional data. Within 3 months of working with the bank, we increased debit card spends by 30% in volume and 50% in value.
    We achieved this by running large-scale analytics and machine learning algorithms on the bank's transactional data streams in order to predict consumer behaviour and target the right consumers at the right time. It was a completely real-time system built on the Hadoop platform using Apache Mahout & Storm.
