Session Abstract

Orwell Group shares how they leveraged microservices, an event driven architecture and both master and reference data management methodologies to build a new banking system for high retail banking customers and corporate banks requiring cross border payments and cash flow management – and scaled it to handle customers with millions of clients. In particular they explain how they built a high availability, geo-distributed and consistent platform on top of MariaDB. The result was a secure and distributed platform with high cost efficiency, and the data accuracy and consistency needed to create high quality data pipelines from transactions to analytics and ensure regulatory compliance (e.g., GDPR).
