In-Memory-Optimized Stream Processing and Machine Learning in Real-time Banking

Modern banking customers demand experiences that are real-time, global, and omnichannel. This creates tremendous technology challenges along with opportunities for disruption. It also brings many new vulnerabilities that require real-time machine learning.

In this talk, we will explore the challenges with integrating real-time machine learning into payment processing and securities trading applications.

We will walk through key technology areas needed to address these challenges, such as stream processing and low-latency compute, data locality and data-aware processing, and in-memory optimized solutions. We will discuss how these enable faster processing while also enabling greater resilience and scalability, and walk through real-world examples covering payment processing, real-time fraud, real-time pricing, and fast risk.
