This paper describes distributed architecture and data workflow of the analysis system called FCART. Comparing with the similar systems FCART is capable of dealing with various data sources, data preprocessing and interactive analysis, extending functionality by integrating independent web-services and developing plugins. Example of gathering and analyzing data of social networking service is considered.
