19:30 Tarik Belghouar – Combatting Fraud and Providing Customer Insights in Real Time
Learn how CDL processes vast amounts of consumer data in milliseconds to help financial services and other industries combat fraud, learn consumer habits, and more.

We will show how we developed and delivered our solution at scale in under 8 months. We will demo how Hummingbird works and performs in production and how our DevOps team uses key AWS services, Elasticsearch and ML to continually improve and deliver enhancements to the service.

We will share our experience and lessons learnt from completing the AWS Well Architected review and applying Chaos Engineering disciplines through Game Days.

We will cover how we developed and implemented our JAVA microservices based architecture and how we are able roll out and deliver change by having loosely coupled components that communicate via a publish/subscribe message queue. All of this is deployed in an automated way using infrastructure as code tooling (packer & terraform).

Thank you again to Sheffield Hallam University who are hosting us in Cantor Building.
