Thursday 14 November 2019


When you’re one of the worlds’s largest tech unicorns and you’re dealing with the health and lives of hundreds of millions of people, you don’t want to be the bottleneck. That was the data platform engineering team at Babylon Health and so began the Babylon with journey to introduce DataOps tools and practices to scale their business. In this session, understand the complexity of Babylon’s data challenges as their business exploded into new markets by the month and
* the tools, processes and GitOps practices Babylon had to put in place to scale
* mistakes you should avoid as you grow
* how Babylon free up engineering and infrastructure resources by opening up their data platform to data consumers directly
* how you can reduce the need of skills by using SQL to work with real-time streams of data
* how to build realtime streaming applications in a consistent manner following GitOps principles
* how using has been the secret to Babylon’s success
