DevOps at ING Analytics: combining data engineering with data operations

ING was one of the early adopters of the DevOps movement. Currently, there is a lot of expertise in the organization: way of working, tools, and HR are all catered for DevOps. In the Analytics area, these best practices were the basis of a modern and stable architecture where data engineers, operations, and data scientists work together with business people on daily basis.
