The best organizations even welcome disruptive weather as a means to stimulate growth while their competition runs damage control. If all of this is true, then why aren't more businesses taking advantage of weather?

It has taken centuries to build out technology robust enough to capture all 3 of these components simultaneously.

This, however, does not make consuming weather information any easier. A web map streaming weather radar - as you might find online or on your TV - is showing merely an image of what is happening or about to happen.
It paints a very nice picture, but it's not data in a format that supports manipulation, queries, or any sort of spatial analytics. Professional Joe needs some serious automation and precision in order to deploy an effective weather strategy that accounts for space, time, and millions of unique locations.
An enterprise solution that solves for the requirements above needs to capture the core complexities of weather while delivering on the modern demands of business technology. It should have a user friendly, self-service interface; it should provide an on-demand answer when and where it's applicable to the end user; and it should come in the form of cleansed, organized data which can immediately blend with business data for operational use.
In a perfect world, the business user should be able to submit a list of locations, a time frame of interest, and perils of interest.
Simple as that. While it is not very simple, nor is it a perfect world, I am proud to be a part of an innovative team working tirelessly to turn this vision into a reality.
