Rabobank is a worldwide food- and agri-bank from the Netherlands. Rabobank wants to make a substantial contribution to welfare and prosperity in the Netherlands and to feeding the world sustainably. Rabobank Group operates through Rabobank and its subsidiaries in 40 countries.

Rabobank is active in both retail and wholesale banking. For our wholesale clients we provide real-time business insight information by making use of Cloudera and Hortonworks technology. An example is our recently launched service that gives insight in market performance of Rabobank customers, starting with the dairy farmers market segment, by making use of benchmark information. Our current technology stack contains Hortonworks Data Flow (HDF) and Cloudera Hadoop (CDH). Our real-time data stream is implemented by making use of Kafka and Nifi from HDF. Cloudera is used to store the data needed for the business insight information, mainly in HDFS and HBase.

During our presentation we will provides insight about the project approach, the architecture and actual implementation.
