  • Change Data Capture with microservices: Author of this article Bijit Ghosh talks about the integration of Change Data Capture (CDC) with microservices architecture, which enables real-time tracking of changes made to data in a database, allowing microservices to respond to any modifications. Ghosh emphasizes that each microservice must have its own CDC mechanism integrated to capture relevant changes. He covers key architectural considerations, including capturing and transmitting data changes and maintaining data consistency. Finally, he explores how CDC can be utilized in DataOps and AI/ML use cases, such as data warehouse incremental refresh and real-time stream processing.
