Rakuten Card, a leading credit card company in Japan, is using Cloudera Enterprise to ensure more data is available to their business faster to expand the business.
Rakuten Card by transitioning to a modern platform boosted by Apache Spark is able to process data at more than twice the speed of the legacy system.
Rakuten Card has migrated from its legacy system to a modern platform with Cloudera’s solutions to support the business growth and future potential. The move enables high-performance, large-scale processing to support a variety of use cases, such as real-time streaming analytics, machine learning, predictive modeling, and advanced analytics.
The transition from legacy mainframe to the new platform has helped Rakuten Card to address and resolve performance issues. The credit card company has leveraged operation and management tools available through Cloudera Manager to achieve optimum application performance.
Cloudera said the ability to support use cases with a modern platform has significantly reduced time spent on maintenance and management, allowing the Rakuten team more time to focus on growing strategic areas of the business.
Rakuten Card aims to become Japan’s number one credit card company by 2020.
“Cloudera Enterprise exceeded all of our engineering requirements and solved the performance problems of our previous system,” said Yosuke Nakagawa, vice department manager of the System Development Department at Rakuten Card.
Mark Micallef, vice president for Asia Pacific and Japan at Cloudera, said that Cloudera is working with Rakuten Card to help them scale their growth, take action on their data faster, and address multiple strategic objectives across all their data — on-premises and in the cloud.
