Gary Stewart

Platform Architect, Distributed Data
Gary is a hands-on platform architect at ING for distributed data. With over 17 years of experience, initially around Integration, BPM(Business Process Management) and RDBMS in various industries. In the past years he has really submerged into the NoSQL World to make the bank even more resilient and scalable without trading consistency, “Not an easy switch but definitely worth it!”. Changing the banking landscape from mostly SQL to polyglot solutions is key to ‘doing the right thing’ and focusing on details allows us to ‘do the thing right’. Keeping the data store options minimal and ensuring we have maximum flexibility is key to success in this modern always online and connected world with over 300 databases to choose from. Within ING, Gary is a trainer, pioneer and evangelist for NoSQL (incl Graph) and he is contributing to ING’s engineering culture through learning, sharing and doing.
