Worldpay processes almost 39 million transactions every day – around 415 every, single second. This is a huge volume of information, which comprises sensitive card transactions and personal details. For Worldpay, it means every step for each transaction has to be secure. It is the cornerstone of the business. In April 2015 we made the decision to commit to a Hadoop-based new enterprise-wide data platform. The idea was to provide analytics and data-driven decisions, to source information from across all our platforms and bring it to one place, to make this information available to our colleagues, our customers and our partners and to exploit disruptive open-source technologies.
This keynote will chart the journey of how we moved how we built the a secure system, the challenges we faced and how we made it work as well as looking at how the data, the team and the business operate today to positively impact the millions of people that rely on Worldpay around the world.
