Payments Modernization and the Role of the Operational Data Layer

To stay relevant and competitive, payment solution providers must enhance their payment processes to adapt to changing customer expectations, regulatory demands, and advancing technologies. The imperative for modernization is clear: payment systems must become faster, more secure, and seamlessly integrated across platforms. Driven by multiple factors—real-time payments, regulatory shifts like Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2), heightened customer expectations, the power of open banking, and the disruptive force of fintech startups—the need for payment modernization has never been more pressing. But transformation is not without its challenges. Complex systems, industry reliance on outdated technology, high upgrade costs, and technical debt all pose formidable obstacles. This article will explore modernization approaches and how MongoDB helps smooth transformations. Approaches to modernization As businesses work to modernize their payment systems, they need to overcome the complexities inherent in updating legacy systems. Forward-thinking organizations embrace innovative strategies to streamline their operations, enhance scalability, and facilitate agile responses to evolving market demands. Two such approaches gaining prominence in the realm of payment system modernization are domain-driven design and microservices architecture : Domain-driven design: This approach focuses on a business's core operations to develop scalable and easier-to-manage systems. Domain-driven design ensures that technology serves strategic business goals by aligning system development with business needs. At its core, this approach seeks to break down complex business domains into manageable components, or "domains," each representing a distinct area of business functionality. Microservices architecture: Unlike traditional monolithic architectures, characterized by tightly coupled and interdependent components, a microservices architecture decomposes applications into a collection of loosely coupled services, each of which is responsible for a specific business function or capability. It introduces more flexibility and allows for quicker updates, facilitating agile responses to changing business requirements. Discover how Wells Fargo launched their next-generation card payments by building an operational data store with MongoDB . Modernizing with an operational data layer In the payments modernization process, the significance of an operational data layer (ODL) cannot be overstated. An ODL is an architectural pattern that centrally integrates and organizes siloed enterprise data, making it available to consuming applications. The simplest representation of this pattern looks something like the sample reference architecture below. Figure 1: Operational Data Layer structure An ODL is deployed in front of legacy systems to enable new business initiatives and to meet new requirements that the existing architecture can’t handle—without the difficulty and risk of fully replacing legacy systems. It can reduce the workload on source systems, improve availability, reduce end-user response times, combine data from multiple systems into a single repository, serve as a foundation for re-architecting a monolithic application into a suite of microservices, and more. The ODL becomes a system of innovation, allowing the business to take an iterative approach to digital transformation. Here's why an ODL is considered ideal for payment operations: Unified data management: Payment systems involve handling a vast amount of diverse data, including transaction details, customer information, and regulatory compliance data. An ODL provides a centralized repository for storing and managing this data, eliminating silos and ensuring data integrity. Real-time processing: An ODL enables real-time processing of transactions, allowing businesses to handle high numbers of transactions swiftly and efficiently. This capability is essential for meeting customer expectations for instant payments and facilitating seamless transactions across various channels. Scalability and flexibility: Payment systems must accommodate fluctuating transaction volumes and evolving business needs. An ODL offers scalability and flexibility, allowing businesses to scale their infrastructure as demand grows. Enhanced security: An ODL incorporates robust security features —such as encryption, access controls, and auditing capabilities—to safeguard data integrity and confidentiality. By centralizing security measures within the ODL, businesses can ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and mitigate security risks effectively. Support for payments data monetization: Payment systems generate a wealth of data that can provide valuable insights into customer behavior, transaction trends, and business performance. An ODL facilitates real-time analytics and reporting by providing a unified platform for collecting, storing, and analyzing this data. Transform with MongoDB MongoDB’s fundamental technology principles ensure companies can reap the advantages of microservices and domain-driven design—specifically, our flexible data model and built-in redundancy, automation, and scalability. Indeed, the document model is tailor-made for the intricacies of payment data, ensuring adaptability and scalability as market demands evolve. Here’s how MongoDB helps with domain-driven design and microservice implementation to adopt industry best practices: Ease of use: MongoDB’s document model makes it simple to model or remodel data to fit the needs of payment applications. Documents are a natural way of describing data. They present a single data structure, with related data embedded as sub-documents and arrays, making it simpler and faster for developers to model how data in the application will be mapped to data stored in the database. In addition, MongoDB guarantees the multi-record ACID transactional semantics that developers are familiar with, making it easier to reason about data. Flexibility: MongoDB’s dynamic schema is ideal for handling the requirements of microservices and a domain-driven design. Domain-driven design emphasizes modeling the domain to reflect the business requirements, which may evolve over time. MongoDB's flexible schema allows you to store domain objects as documents without rigid schema constraints, facilitating agile development and evolution of the domain model. Speed: Using MongoDB for an ODL means you can get better performance when accessing data, and write less code to do so. A document is a single place for the database to read and write data for an entity. This locality of data ensures the complete document can be accessed in a single database operation that avoids the need internally to pull data from many different tables and rows. Data access and microservice-based APIs: MongoDB integrates seamlessly with modern technologies and frameworks commonly used in microservices architectures. MongoDB's flexible data model and ability to handle various data types, including structured and unstructured data, is a great fit for orchestrating your open API ecosystem to make data flow between banks, third parties, and consumers possible. Scalability: Even if an ODL starts at a small scale, you need to be prepared for growth as new source systems are integrated, adding data volume, and new consuming systems are developed, increasing workload. MongoDB provides horizontal scale-out on low-cost, commodity hardware or cloud infrastructure using sharding to meet the needs of an ODL with large data sets and high throughput requirements. High availability: Microservices architectures require high availability to ensure that individual services remain accessible even in the event of failures. MongoDB provides built-in replication and failover capabilities, ensuring data availability and minimal downtime in case of server failures. Payment modernization is not merely a trend but a strategic imperative. By embracing modern payment solutions and leveraging the power of an ODL with MongoDB, organizations can unlock new growth opportunities, enhance operational efficiency, and deliver superior customer experiences.

How the NFSA is Using MongoDB Atlas and AI to Make Aussie Culture Accessible

Where can you find everything from facts about Kylie Minogue, to more than 6,000 Australian home movies, to a 60s pop group playing a song with a drum-playing kangaroo ? The NFSA! Founded in 1935, the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) is one of the oldest archives of its kind in the world. It is tasked with collecting, preserving, and sharing Australia’s audiovisual culture. According to its website, the NFSA “represents not only [Australia’s] technical and artistic achievements, but also our stories, obsessions and myths; our triumphs and sorrows; who we were, are, and want to be.” The NFSA’s collection includes petabytes of audiovisual data—including broadcast-quality news footage, TV shows, and movies, high-resolution photographs, radio shows, and video games—plus millions of physical and contextual items like costumes, scripts, props, photographs, and promotional materials, all tucked away in a warehouse. “Today, we have eight petabytes of data, and our data is growing from one to two petabytes each year,” said Shahab Qamar, software engineering manager at NFSA. Making this wealth of data easily accessible to users across Australia (not to mention all over the world) has led to a number of challenges, which is where MongoDB Atlas—which helps developers simplify and accelerate building with data—comes in. Don’t change (but apply a few updates) Because of its broad appeal, the NFSA's collection website alone receives an average of 100,000 visitors each month. When Qamar joined the NFSA in 2020, he saw an opportunity to improve the organization’s web platform. His aim was to ensure the best possible experience for the site’s high number of daily visitors, which had begun to plateau. This included a website refresh, as well as addressing technical issues related to handling site traffic, due to the site being hosted on on-premises servers. The site also wasn’t “optimized for Google Analytics,” said Qamar. In fact, the NFSA website was invisible to Google and other search engines, so he knew it was time for a significant update, which also presented an opportunity to set up strong data foundations to build deeper capabilities down the line. But first, Qamar and team needed to find a setup that could serve the needs of the NFSA and Australia’s 26 million residents more robustly than their previous solution. Specifically, Qamar said, the NFSA was looking for a fully managed database that could also implement search at scale, as well as a system that his small team of five could easily manage. It also needed to ensure high levels of resiliency and the ability to work with more than one cloud provider. The previous NFSA site also didn’t support content delivery networks , he added. MongoDB Atlas supported all of the use cases the NFSA was looking for, Qamar said, including the ability to support multi-cloud hosting. And because Atlas is fully managed, it would readily meet the NFSA's requirements. In July 2023, after months of development, the new and greatly improved NFSA website was launched in July 2023. The redesign was immediately impactful: Since the NFSA’s redesigned site was launched, the number of users visiting the collection search website has gone up 200%, and content requests—which the NFSA access team responds to on a case-by-case basis—have gone up 16%. (Getting search) back in black While the previous version of the NFSA site included search, the prior functionality was prone to crashing, and the quality of the results was often poor, Qamar said. For example, search results were delivered alphabetically rather than based on relevance, and the previous search didn’t support fine-tuning of relevance based on matches in specific fields. So, as part of its site redesign, the NFSA was looking to add full text search, relevance-based search results, faceting, and pagination. MongoDB Atlas Search —which integrates the database, search engine, and sync mechanism into a single, unified, fully managed platform—ticked all of those boxes. A search results page on the NFSA website Indeed, the NFSA compared search results from its old site to its new MongoDB Atlas site and “found that MongoDB Atlas-based searches were more relevant and targeted,” Qamar said. Previously, configuring site search required manual coding and meant downtime for the site, he noted. “The whole setup wasn’t very developer friendly and, therefore, a barrier to working efficiently with search configuration and fine-tuning,” Qamar said. In comparison, MongoDB Atlas allowed for simple configuration and fine-tuning of the NFSA's search requirements. The NFSA has also been using MongoDB Atlas Charts . Charts help the NFSA easily visualize its collection by custom grouping (like production year or genre), as well as helping the NFSA see which items are most popular with users. “Charts have helped us understand how our collection is growing and evolving over time,” Qamar said. NFSA’s use of MongoDB Charts Can’t get you (AI) out of my head Now, the NFSA—inspired by Qamar’s own training in machine learning and the broad interest in all things AI—is exploring how it can use Atlas Vector Search and generative AI tools to allow users to explore content buried in the NFSA collection. One example cited is putting transcriptions of audiovisual files in NFSA’s collection into a vector database for retrieval-augmented generation (RAG). The NFSA has approximately 27 years worth—meaning, it would take 27 years to play it all back—of material to transcribe, and is currently developing a model to accurately capture the Australian dialect so the work is transcribed correctly. Ultimately, the NFSA is interested in building a RAG-powered AI bot to provide historically and contextually accurate information about work in the NFSA’s archive. The NFSA is also exploring how it can use RAG to deliver accurate, conversation-like search results without training large language models itself, and whether it can leverage AI to help restore some of the older videos in its collection. Qamar and team are also interested in vectorizing audio-visual material for semantic analysis and genre-based classification of collection material at scale, he said. “Historically, we’ve been very metadata-driven and keyword-driven, and I think that’s a missed opportunity. Because when we talk about what an archive does, we archive stories,” Qamar said of the possibilities offered by vectors. “An example I use is, what if the world ended tomorrow? And what if aliens came to Earth and only saw our metadata, what image of Australia would they see? Is that a true image of what Australia is really like?” Qamar said. “How content is described is important, but content’s imagery, the people in it, and the audio and words being spoken are really important. Full-text search can take you somewhere along the way, but vector search allows you to look things up in a semantic manner. So it’s more about ideas and concepts than very specific keywords,” he said.

The Developers' Developers: Two Australian Developers Share Their Connections to Customers

The world’s 28 million software developers are writing the foundations of our future, propelling innovation for their organizations through lines of code by creating game-changing new apps. Indeed, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that between 2022 and 2032, the number of software developers, quality assurance analysts, and testers will grow 24%, “much faster than the average for all occupations.” Fueling this innovative workforce is another group of developers, the people working behind the scenes to build the tools, technologies and platforms that other developers need to be successful: the developers’ developers. Many developers at MongoDB—which after all was built by developers for developers, and is beloved by enterprises and startups alike—fall into this camp. To learn more about what makes these developers tick, we talked with two Australia-based senior software engineers at MongoDB who love to code for their peers. For Lavender Chan and Angus Lee, there’s nothing like seeing the ripple effect of the code they have been working on and the impact it has on their customers. What’s more, the opportunity to be a “developer’s developer” has allowed Chan and Lee to find a space for deep technical work while thriving in an autonomous environment. At MongoDB, we believe developers will build the future. First, can you share more about your roles and what you’re working on? Lavender Chan (LC): I work on the Relational Migrator tool, which allows developers to migrate SQL data onto MongoDB. I joined the company two and a half years ago, and have been part of the Sydney technology scene for the last 10 years. The appeal of joining MongoDB was that it’s a large global company, but in the engineering team, you are able to have a big impact and a lot of autonomy. Relational Migrator was a greenfield project, and our team has been able to take the original product idea built out of the US and run with it. I’m a full stack developer and have touched on every feature of the tool. A lot of the engineers were able to contribute and work on new ideas. There’s also a strong emphasis on culture here which practically means a lot of the people I work with are excited to be here and passionate about their roles. Angus Lee (AL): I work in the MongoDB Charts team in Australia and think our team is a sweet spot for developers. I’ve interned for other tech companies and started my career at MongoDB. Since then I’ve been given responsibilities where I can create a lot of impact. My role at MongoDB in Sydney has also given me great opportunities to connect directly to the developers we are creating products for in a way that pushes my work to a higher level. Your roles are focused on products targeted to other developers. How does developing for developers affect your approach to your work? LC: In our roles we are creating directly for other developers, so the work that I am doing is deeply technical and specific. As Migrator is a newer product, we are able to interact directly with our customers—other developers—and often a lot of their questions are quite complex and specific, which means I go on a learning journey in debunking and fixing their problems. AL: We have a strong team culture in that as developers we want to be our own users. That means we want to use other MongoDB team products, and they use ours, so we can better identify pain points and issues for our customers. There’s a term that developers use called “dogfooding” that really sums up how we think on this, which basically means to use your own product. It means for me that I think about writing clean code to help any other developers extend on this, and how effective what I do will be for the user. What I’ve also learnt is how our product helps other products thrive. We should have done all the hard work to transform data and show it through data visualizsation tools so it’s easy for the customer. Can you tell us more about this connection to customers and how MongoDB empowers developers? LC: When Relational Migrator was released as a general product, I went to MongoDB World to work at the booth, and I talked to the developers and customers using the platform. As an engineer, it was an amazing experience and opportunity to see how it was being used and what else we could be doing. This connection of engineers with customers, as well as the ability to speak to them regularly in my role, is unique. In other companies I would need to go through support teams, to go through someone else just to push out a bug fix. Our team is very customer focused, so we can prioritizse features that our customers want. AL: One of the best moments for me at MongoDB was when I went to MongoDB World and I sat down with a customer to talk through a feature of Charts. It was a pivotal moment to see the improvements it makes for the businesses that use it, and the impact it generates for their customers beyond that. I could sit back and see the ripple effect of the code I’m writing. There is also a great feedback engine where our users can submit ideas and other users can vote for that feature. The product managers pick from these and push out features that are directly relevant to the developers using it. We really connect through our aim to create an open forum for developers and customers to provide feedback and suggest ideas. Developers are problem solvers. As part of the MongoDB Love Your Developers campaign, we believe in championing the voice of developers and giving them the freedom to experiment and innovate. How do you see this in action? LC: In other places, I was a small cog in a massive system. At MongoDB, I really have an impact and can see directly how my work translates to our final product. In Sydney, we’re a satellite office, but it’s indicative of our company culture that there is huge trust placed in these teams. We’re given high impact projects and can run with them, which means I’ve been able to watch the Relational Migrator product go from a tiny product used by only a few customers, to one that is now generally available. Not many engineers get to work for a well-established, large company and still have the opportunity to work on and release products like a startup. There is a strong global interest in AI-driven innovations. How have your connections to customers led to innovations in this area? AL: We’ve been able to take an idea for a new AI feature, Natural Language Charts , and take it from concept to being released as a feature at MongoDB.local in London. We could see from our conversations with customers, as well as broader industry trends, that there was strong interest in new AI features, so we were able to prioritize it for Charts. We started with nothing and were given the freedom to research how this feature could work using AI, create a new proof of concept, and from there we were able to push it out into a feature which was a really proud moment. Having this agility and flexibility to prioritize something new is exactly what we want to provide to our customers. I never feel like I'm just churning out code. We are connected to the work and to our customers. MongoDB is built by developers, for developers. Become part of the team changing the way the world works with data!

데일리샷, MongoDB Atlas로 스마트 주류 검색 서비스를 혁신하다

주류 시장에 불어온 새로운 바람 일부 전통주를 제외하고 오프라인 판매만 가능했던 한국 주류 시장은 2020년 온라인 판매 규제가 개정되면서 새로운 전환점을 맞이했습니다. 앱으로 언제 어디서나 원하는 주류를 주문할 수 있는 스마트 오더 서비스는 한국 소비자가 즐겨 찾는 새로운 주류 구매 방식으로 자리 잡으며 일상 전반에 편리함을 가져왔습니다. 데일리샷(Dailyshot) 은 이러한 변화를 선도적으로 이끌며 주류 경험의 새로운 기준을 정립한 국내 1위 온라인 주류 플랫폼입니다. 2020년 하반기 발빠르게 서비스를 시작한 데일리샷은 앱 기반 주류 스마트 오더 서비스를 통해 누구나 프리미엄 주류를 둘러보고 합리적인 가격으로 구매하며 매장이나 택배 등 선호하는 방식으로 수령할 수 있는 플랫폼을 제공하고 있습니다. 데이터 관리와 비즈니스 구현에 대한 고민 소비자의 주류 구매 과정 전반에서 접근성을 높일 방법을 고민하던 데일리샷은 비즈니스 성장에 따라 앱 내 검색 기능을 고도화하고 방대한 상품 종류와 픽업지 데이터를 효과적으로 관리하기 위한 전문적인 기술이 필요했습니다. 가령 고객과 가까운 동네나 주류 픽업을 희망하는 지역을 선택하기 위해서는 필터 기능이 필수적입니다. 그러나 데일리샷이 기존 사용하던 인메모리(in-memory) 데이터베이스의 Geospatial 기능은 간단한 필터링을 지원하지 않아 추가적인 서버 자원이 소모되며 비용 증가와 API 응답 지연을 야기했습니다. 또한 데일리샷의 기존 프레임워크 상에서 상품 검색을 위한 MySQL의 full-text search 기능을 사용할 수 없어 추가 리소스를 도입해야 했습니다. 상세한 검색결과를 얻기 위해서는 브랜드나 상품명, 전통주, 와인과 같은 주종, 카테고리 등 다양한 요소를 고려한 데이터 구조를 구축해야 합니다. 그러나 스타트업의 특성 상 추가 리소스를 부담하면서 full-text search를 위한 관리 구조를 만들 인력도 녹록치 않은 상황이었습니다. 데일리샷은 세계 각국의 다양한 주류를 제공하고 있기에 주문 및 픽업 방식 역시 다양합니다. 같은 상품이라도 해외 직구, 직접 픽업 등 고객의 주문 방식에 따라 옵션이 다르기 때문에 관리해야 하는 데이터가 많고 복잡합니다. 기존 사용 중인 RDBMS에서 이 같이 다양한 옵션을 아우르는 상품 테이블을 종합하는 것은 비용과 시간 모두 상당한 자원 낭비를 가져왔으며, 고객에게 데이터를 제공하기까지 상당한 시간이 소요됐습니다. 데일리샷이 제공하는 주류 픽업 및 상품 검색 서비스 성공적인 검색 서비스 고도화를 위한 여정 서비스와 고객경험 개선을 위해 고민하던 데일리샷은 기존 사용 중인 AWS를 기반으로 MongoDB Atlas를 도입했습니다. 먼저 데일리샷은 MongoDB Atlas에서 바로 컬렉션과 쿼리를 생성해 필터링을 위한 Geospatial 기능을 간편하게 구현하며 지연시간을 기존 0.3-0.5에서 0.1초로 최소화하고, MongoDB Atlas Search로 full-text search를 위한 준비를 빠르게 마칠 수 있었습니다. 최희재 데일리샷 CTO는 “다른 경쟁 서비스들과 비교하며 고심한 결과, 학습 곡선이나 유지 보수 효율성 측면에서 MongoDB Atlas Search가 우세했다”며 “MongoDB Atlas Search는 기존 사용하던 MySQL의 full-text search와 차이가 있지만 MongoDB가 제공하는 상세 가이드라인을 기반으로 쉽게 적용할 수 있었다. 기능 개발부터 서비스 배포까지 전 과정을 불과 2주만에 완료하며 고객들에게 빠르게 신기능을 선보일 수 있었다”고 강조했습니다. 최희재 CTO는 특히 MongoDB의 full-text search 기능이 검색을 위한 인덱스 구성이 쉽고 MongoDB Atlas Dashboard나 MongoDB Compass와 같은 GUI(Graphical User Interface)로 구성할 수 있다는 점을 매력 요소로 꼽았습니다. 데일리샷은 추후 Atlas Search를 서비스 전반에 도입해 퍼지 검색(fuzzy search), 자동 완성(autocomplete) 등 다양한 검색 관련 기능에 접목할 계획입니다. 독보적인 주류 경험을 제공하는 기업으로 성큼 나아가다 MongoDB Atlas 및 MongoDB Atlas Search 도입 후 데일리샷의 고객경험은 눈에 띄게 개선됐습니다. 원하는 검색 결과를 얻지 못하는 검색 실패율이 더욱 낮아졌고, Voice of Customer(VoC)를 통한 검색 관련 기술 요구 사항의 90%를 해결할 수 있었습니다. 또한 MongoDB 도입 후 RDB 인프라 자원의 사용이 줄어들면서 비용의 20% 절감할 수 있었습니다. 최희재 CTO는 “MongoDB Korea가 제공하는 양질의 기술은 물론 문제 발생 시 빠르고 정확하게 대응할 수 있도록 지원하는 점이 인상 깊었다”며 성공적인 MongoDB 도입에는 무엇보다 MongoDB Korea 팀의 적극적인 지원이 뒤따랐다고 강조했습니다. 이어 “기술 측면에서 MongoDB Atlas Dashboard로 간편한 모니터링과 slow 쿼리를 프로파일링 할 수 있었고, MongoDB Compass 앱을 통해 쿼리를 작성하고 테스트하며 실제 코드 적용까지의 전 과정을 신속하게 진행할 수 있었다. MongoDB에 익숙지 않는 개발자에게는 자세한 설명을 담은 기술 문서가 큰 도움이 됐다”고 덧붙였습니다. 데일리샷은 다양한 데이터를 아우르는 고도화된 검색 기능을 제공하면서 고객의 긍정적인 반응을 체감했고, 향후 유연한 insert 조건을 갖춘 MongoDB를 통해 로그 및 시각화를 구현하고 Atlas Vector Search로 더욱 개선된 검색 기능을 구축할 계획입니다. 지속적인 서비스 혁신을 통해 데일리샷은 2024년 기준 월간 활성 사용자수(MAU) 67만 명, 누적 앱 설치 수 150만 건을 기록하며 서비스 시작 3년만에 한국 최대 주류 플랫폼으로서 입지를 공고히 다지고 있습니다. 최희재 CTO는 “데일리샷은 단순히 주류를 구매할 수 있는 플랫폼에 그치지 않고 주류 시장 전반에 긍정적인 영향을 끼치는 기업이 되는 것이 목표”라며 “MongoDB와의 지속적인 협력을 바탕으로 고객의 다양한 니즈를 반영한 선도적인 서비스로 업계와 함께 성장하는 선순환 구조를 만들 것"이라며 포부를 드러냈습니다.
