Abstract: Visa technology processes billions of financial transactions around the world each year.  With millions of merchants depending on Visa to fuel the lifeblood of their business, the platform architecture and technologies -- integrated and invented -- must be reliable and able to massively scale.  Learn how major enterprises like Visa have architected very complex integrations incorporating leading edge technologies such at Hadoop, memcached, Ruby on Rails, and many others to deliver innovative technology solutions for a rapidly evolving market.  Davies has direct experience with the integration of recent acquisitions CyberSource and Playspan into Visa and scaling both the network as well as people.
