It is no longer sufficient that software works. For software to be successful, it has to perform really well—to scale, achieve desired latency, and have consistent behavior with high throughput. Indeed performance tuning is the true engineering challenge, almost a black art. It is also no longer sufficient to just have intelligent data pipelines and services. Now, it is essential that they be extremely secure.
However, performance and security are often at loggerheads. Rekha Joshi explains why and offers a deep dive into how performance and security are managed in some of the most intense and critical data platform services at Intuit, exploring the factors that play a critical role in getting to highly secure performant system.
Rekha Joshi is principal engineer working in Intuit’s Technology group, where she is responsible for designing and implementing large-scale intelligent distributed platform solutions. Previously, she delivered large-scale personalized solutions for internet scale at Yahoo. Rekha has worked in diverse domains of finance, advertising, supply chain, and AI research. Her refueling stops include reading Issac Asimov, Richard Feynman, and PG Wodehouse and stalking Elon Musk.
