    D-Insight is used by Insurance Companies to create their Usage-Based Insurance (UBI) products, and the platform supports both “Pay-As-You-Drive” (PAYD) and “Pay-How-You-Drive” (PHYD) product where the insurance premiums are calculated dynamically, according to the driver behaviour.

  • Yury Nevinitsin  from Odnoklassniki.ru  will share an successful experience of deploying Druid in place of MSSQL
    “Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store” http://druid.io
    I will tell how they solved the situation when MSSQL-based statistics system (50TB sized) became:
    – slow: average response time was many times slower than required
    – unstable: at peak hours it was up to 30 minutes late
    – expensive: expences for Microsoft licences could be millions USD.
    In Odnoklassniki.ru Druid is used to store and query operational statistics for the last 2 years. At the moment we process tens billons records each day (hundreds gigabytes by size).
    Why Druid?
    We chose druid (among open-source solutions) because it promised us high-performance, scalability and fault-tolerance. All three properties were required, and there were no other solution at the moment of making decision.

  • Bogdan Ozerkin from SIA Dynatech will give a talk Log management in a Service architecture
    When you implement service architecture, there are many ways to screw up, one of which would be to miss out on debugging solutions. As you detect problems in your services, valuable insights on what’s going on “inside” should be available, in order to be able to react on incident and provide solutions faster. In this talk, I would like to dig in to the nature of logging, providing an overview on what it is and how do it in a Service architecture. Additionally tell You a story about how we created an Ad hoc solution for our infrastructure

  • Dmitry Buzdin from Riga DevDays will give a talk “Continuous Testing at Scale”
    With the raise of Continuous Delivery test automation is becoming a norm rather than luxury. However, when dealing with high-complexity, large and modular projects you would be disappointed to learn that it is a challenge to set-up a fully automated continuous testing pipeline. The problems you are encountering are tool incompatibility and general lack of suitable solutions to scale out test automation processes. Imagine tens of thousands of automated test cases, which are required to be run for a product to be fully tested.
    During this talk Dmitry will answer the following questions:
    – How do you run your automated tests in a shortest time frame possible?
    – How do you know if your functional test coverage is improving?
    – How do you select and run the most appropriate test cases?
    – How do you get actionable insight from your testing process results?
    – How do you know if it is safe to release software package to production?
    This presentation will guide you though a journey of building and improving test automation pipeline based on Jenkins in a large telco organisation with hundreds of thousands test executions performed on daily basis. By looking at this example it would possible to see what tools are missing at the market currently and where test automation industry should focus efforts next. The talk will outline examples of micro services developed to fill the functional gaps. This experience would be beneficial and applicable in your next large-scale CD project.
