Level:  Business/Strategic

There’s ongoing buzz about extracting business value from data, but much less is understood and discussed about the best infrastructure with which to house and manage that data for optimal performance and availability. Traditional technologies aren’t keeping up, while the vast amount of data currently available and created by organizations and their customers will only continue to increase. Organizations face a stark choice – either embrace new technologies to meet the performance and availability demands of modern applications, or be left behind as their competitors reinvent themselves.

In this session, DataStax CEO, Billy Bosworth, will share his expertise on building the right database infrastructure for modern applications. Based on years of hands-on experience, Billy will provide practical steps for transforming your business into an “Internet Enterprise” and finding success in the digital era. Billy will look at concrete examples of companies like Safeway, Clear Capital, and Target which are using a “scale out” approach to help transition to “Internet Enterprises” and show how they are using a data-driven mindset to transform their customer engagements.
