TalkData patterns catalogue: simplifying the journey from monolith to modern data architectures
The data heart of many businesses is monolithic legacy systems, beating powerfully but slowly as they are hardened against rapid change. However, to quickly derive business insight, act for customers in real time, and empower autonomous product teams, we look to microservice architectures and self-service data platforms to infuse the entire organisation with arterial streams of data.
To make the change is equivalent to open-heart surgery - how do we maintain the data pulse while we animate every part of the business with responsive data? The good news for the patient is that we have surgically precise techniques available.
Andrew will share a range of approaches to common scenarios when migrating incrementally from monolithic legacy systems and batch processes to modern streaming architectures and services bounded by business contexts. He will also share some general design principles for modern data architectures. This will provide a practical framework for thinly slicing data migrations that your organisation can start using today.
