By Reed Peterson, Field CTO, Telecom, DataStax - It’s one thing to deliver performance and new services that impress customers, but doing so at the scale of one of the largest wireless carriers in the world and at the speed required to compete in a cutthroat industry requires data – petabytes of it.

The Right Recipe for a Real-time Data Stack

The Right Recipe for a Real-time Data Stack

By George Trujillo, Principal Data Strategist, DataStax - Think about your favorite recipe. You might have all the ingredients for an apple pie, but there’s no guarantee all the elements will come together to produce a delicious dessert.

The Future is Being Written in Real-time

The Future is Being Written in Real-time

By Chet Kapoor, Chairman and CEO, DataStax - Think about an organization where, at each moment, a recommendation engine is talking to every part of the business – sharing immediate data on live sales and inventory, the purchasing pipeline, and all the context that impacts the business (market conditions, supply chain issues, even weather).

How to Move from Real-Time Data to Real-Time Decisions

How to Move from Real-Time Data to Real-Time Decisions

Serverless Data Architecture: The Modern Path to Digital Transformation

Many enterprises have focused on modernizing by moving applications to the cloud, or building ecommerce offerings (if they are retailers). But in many cases, data has been left out of the digital transformation story because data systems tend to be large, monolithic, fragile, and difficult to deal with—in other words, there are significant risks to the business if the modernization process doesn’t go as planned.

How the Decade of Data Makes Digital Economics Even Better

By Bryan Kirschner, Vice President, Strategy at DataStax - With today’s talk of inflation, it’s worth taking a moment to acknowledge the relentlessly favorable economics of our industry.
