SkillsCast coming soon.
ING is investing in big data, analytics and stream processing to improve data quality and business processes such as balance forecasting, fraud detection and customer relation management. Our ambition is to become a data-driven ‘experimental enterprise’. To realize this, the ING team is working on large scale with big data technologies to set up a data lake where all data flows from the bank come together. Scala is an increasingly important programming language in this scenario.
In this talk Bas will give an overview of the journey a large bank has made from traditional IT (outsourcing, Java) towards in-house development with modern frameworks (Scala, open source), covering topics such as architecture, technology, mindset & behavior, and education.
