The Event-Driven Meetup has been modeling a time tracking system following Martin Fowler's Blue-Green deployment of microservices. To close the monthly financials or revisit a prior financial period. Streams need to be rebuilt into analytic objects from immutable logs rather than from aggregates in a SQL database. Blockchain is a possible database solution but is probably overkill because the data is not normally shared outside a central cloud-based system requiring cryptographic signatures. Assuming an immutable log, we consider inverting the blockchain to log the precise versions of the event-based objects in order to terraform exactly. Replay the data and scripts and event-based components at any point in time. Discussing this architecture brought up the following items for further research.

  • What code repositories are large-scale IT projects at the big banks and other regulated entities using to terraform code and data?
  • Have the selected choices been accepted and prove before regulators?
  • Are banking and supply chain systems on par with Amazon or other always-on eCommerce as adoptive of event-sourced (CQRS) based architecture?   
  • I.e. are we out over our skis in considering terraforming? 

After researching the above questions we plan to propose presenting any worthwhile findings to the AWG.
