ING is a data-driven experimental enterprise that is heavily investing in big data, analytics, and streaming processing. As do many other enterprises, ING deals with a large variety of data sources. The amount of data which must be handled goes beyond the computing performance of single machines, and vertical scalability is hardly an option. For this specific reason, ING is moving toward a scenario where machines are grouped into clusters and data is handled by distributed processing systems. ING’s state-of-the-art data lake and streaming data platform are important building blocks for this transformation. The data lake, built around Hadoop and IBM PDA, replaces several enterprise data warehouses and is the central repository for all types of data, supporting various types of queries for stakeholders’ demands. Data is also being handled more often than not as streams—ING works with Flink and Kafka to provide faster, more reactive up-to-date user experiences and journeys. Finally, machine learning aids traditional SQL to provide better insight when it comes to operational excellence, business processes, marketing, and security applications.
