The world’s weather leader trusts Delta Bravo to manage billions of critical data requests for innovative new platform.
AccuWeather’s D3 Platform combines the world’s most complete global real-time and historical weather database with third-party and client datasets to uncover new levels of business intelligence through proprietary statistical analytics and predictive modeling.
Protecting People (and profit) from Mother Nature
AccuWeather D3 integrates historical information with complex custom algorithms to predict retail revenue, product sales, foot traffic and much more.
For example, supply chain managers alerted of which routes and stores are impacted by unexpected weather. Historic information on how that business functioned during that weather condition is calculated and delivered to the interface. Delivery routes are altered to ensure timely completion. Marketing teams re-target product sales. Operations teams adjust staffing models or move threatened employees to safety.

AccuWeather leverages Microsoft Azure and Azure SQL to process the massive datasets powering AccuWeather D3. Delta Bravo is used to monitor database uptime, performance and security and growth trends. Delta Bravo provides real-time performance recommendations, each prioritized and ordered in the context of their impact on the application’s performance. As AccuWeather D3 continues to expand globally, Delta Bravo provides key database security recommendations to protect against intrusion or compliance violations.
Managing I/O is critical to running a cost-effective cloud data platform. Delta Bravo provides real-time analysis of factors impacting cost, identifying the systems and processes using the most resources and providing recommendations on how to optimize them.
