From Mainframe to Microservices with Tanzu Application Service and Kafka: Bridging the Data Divide

October 11, 2019

Express Scripts, a Cigna corporation company, is reimagining its data and software architecture to bring best-in-class user experience and provide the foundation of next-generation applications. The challenge lies in the ability to efficiently and cost-effectively access the ever-increasing amount of data. This talk will showcase how Pivotal Platform and Apache Kafka are leveraged within Express Scripts’ transformation from mainframe to a microservices-based ecosystem, ensuring data integrity between two worlds. You'll learn: - how Express Scripts is building cloud-based microservices when the system of record is a relational database residing on an on-premise mainframe - how Change Data Capture (CDC) enables event-driven architecture - how Spring framework is used to bind microservices to Kafka - how Express Scripts uses Pivotal Platform to build and scale microservices - how to use Kafka streams and Pivotal Cloud Cache (PCC) to offload the database as part of a data pipeline Learn more: Speakers: Dmitry Milman, Director, Platform Software Engineering, Express Scripts; Ankur Kaneria Principal Architect, Express Scripts / Cigna Filmed at SpringOne Platform 2019 Slides:
