State vs. Flow Data Architecture in the Financial Sector | Whiteboard Walkthrough

In this Whiteboard Walkthrough, MapR’s Chief Application Architect, Ted Dunning, explains the move from state to flow and shows how it works in a financial services example. Ted describes the revolution underway in moving from a traditional system with multiple programs built around a shared database to a new flow-based system that instead uses a shared state queue in the form of a message stream built with technology such as Apache Kafka or MapR Event Store. This new architecture lets decisions be made locally and supports a micro-services style approach.
