In 2013, IG Group started to move towards a continuous delivery model. This allowed them to break away from an ever increasing monthly software release and to enable higher quality and stability by releasing small change sets into production more frequently.
In the world of financial trading, uptime and reliability are carefully monitored by financial regulators around the globe. In this talk, we look at the approaches and techniques IG have used to move to a continuous delivery model with their API layer that serves upwards of 600k requests per hour and is connected to by numerous different web, mobile and public API clients. We will explore the technical and organisational challenges faced along the way, as well as some of the unexpected benefits.
