Building an Enterprise Eventing Framework
Learn how Centene improved their ability to interact and engage with healthcare providers in real time with MongoDB and Confluent Platform. Centene is fundamentally modernizing its legacy monolithic systems to support distributed, real-time event-driven healthcare information processing. A key part of their architecture is the development of a universal eventing framework designed to accommodate transformation into an event-driven architecture (EDA). The business requirements within Centene's claims adjudication domain were solved leveraging the Kafka Stream DSL, Confluent Platform and MongoDB. Most importantly, Centene discusses how they plan on leveraging this framework to change their culture from batch processing to real-time stream processing.
The Offline-first Approach to Mobile App Development
Offline first is not easy, and the usual approaches each have severe limitations. Caching is fast and efficient, but only allows data to flow one way: from the server to the device. Manual replication gives users read/write capability, but at the cost of introducing possible conflicts, multiple failure points, and a need for a robust network pipeline. And building solutions with either approach from the ground up requires engineering resources, expertise, and budgets that are better spent elsewhere.
