Business insights

You’re invited to join Chief Wine Officer, Cockroach Labs & AWS for a networking and fine wine tasting dinner in the heart of London. Alongside your senior FS peers, you’ll hear expert speakers from both Cockroach Labs and AWS as we discuss how to design and deploy payment systems that meet modern requirements of speed of delivery, geographic scale and resilience. Meanwhile, you’ll enjoy a luxurious dinner and an unforgettable guided wine tasting from one of only 416 Masters of Wine in the world. Can we book your seat at the table?

The global payments industry is going through a significant transformation. Traditional and modern
banks alike are reacting to industry changes such as the new ISO20022 messaging standard, regulations, customer expectations and an ever more cashless society. But market leaders are successfully developing new payment applications that are highly available, able to scale up, and handle millions of queries per second whilst remaining consistently accurate. So how can you too transform your FS apps?

Key discussion points

  • Storing and managing vast payment data at scale, without compromising performance
  • The essential importance of consistency, correctness, and availability
  • Deploying global payments systems in hybrid-cloud whilst meeting data sovereignty laws and minimizing concentration risk

This exclusive networking experience is open to just 12 payments application and architecture leaders in the London area. Feel free to invite a relevant senior colleague by contacting the Event Director – but places are limited and filling fast, so secure yours today.
