Apache Cassandra is used in the critical path of most Global Banks yet one might ask why it’s so important in so many financial institutions.

A modernised, cloud native data platform is table stakes as we face new challenges and possibilities. Today, we see this in open banking, cryptocurrencies, data governance, etc. requiring faster, more automated, and accountable data applications at lower operational overheads. While we broadly utilise open source tech to solve these challenges around speed, elasticity, cost and operational overhead, and data governance - is open source really up to the task? Are communities involved in these technologies ready to continuously deliver?

In this session Mick Semb Wever, PMC Chair for Apache Cassandra and Services Leader at DataStax, will discuss how Apache Cassandra, having established itself as THE NoSQL database over the last decade, has re-energised its community and feature development and talk about how ING, Capital One, Visa, ACI, UBS and many others, leverage open source for real-time payments, fraud detection and KYC. This will be backed up with working code examples and demo applications the audience can use for themselves.
