Introducing Events and Stream Processing into Nationwide Building Society

Session Level: Intermediate

Facing Open Banking regulation, rapidly increasing transaction volumes and increasing customer expectations, Nationwide took the decision to take load off their back-end systems through real-time streaming of data changes into Kafka. Hear about how Nationwide started their journey with Kafka, from their initial use case of creating a real-time data cache using Change Data Capture, Kafka and Microservices to how Kafka allowed them to build a stream processing backbone used to reengineer the entire banking experience including online banking, payment processing and mortgage applications. See a working demo of the system and what happens to the system when the underlying infrastructure breaks. Technologies covered include: Change Data Capture, Kafka (Avro, partitioning and replication) and using KSQL and Kafka Streams Framework to join topics and process data.
