  • Retail at the Speed of Cassandra Recorded: Jun 8 2021 33 mins
    James Colvin, Data Architect at DataStax
    The retail world is at a critical inflection point. Customers have come to expect a frictionless and seamless experience across all channels – bricks and mortar, web, mobile – and the amount of data retailers must manage has exploded. Smart retailers are modernizing their data [management] infrastructure to glean new AI- and ML-driven insights into customer behavior, supply chain performance, and operational efficiency.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how your retail organization can harness enterprise and external data to give customers what they want, when, and how they want it to grow revenue and profitability. Our experts will show you how to:

    -- Maximize your data. Move your data out of siloed, legacy systems into a data platform that efficiently pools massive volumes of data from inside and outside your company to gain insights that simply weren’t possible before. Link the value chain end-to-end from supply to inventory to order and fulfillment with a single source of truth.

    -- Modernize your infrastructure. Your digital transformation starts with a modern, cloud-native data platform that scales to meet your needs and can connect to just about any data source as well as emerging technologies such as AI-driven automation.

    -- Make smarter decisions, faster. Stay ahead of market, demand, and supply-chain shifts with unprecedented throughput to inform your decision-making with real-time data. Join us to discover how major retailers including Walmart, The Home Depot, Macy’s, and Best Buy accelerated their digital transformation with DataStax Enterprise powered by Cassandra.

  • News flash: Use native APIs with Cassandra - no CQL needed! Recorded: Apr 15 2021 33 mins
    Denise Gosnell, Distinguished Engineer, DataStax | Paras Mehra, Product Manager, DataStax
    Stargate is an open source data API that radically speeds up development when using a Cassandra database. Native API's include GraphQL, REST, and Schemaless JSON, so predefined schemas aren’t needed to start coding. Stargate accelerates development and reduces the learning curve for developers. No longer do you need to search for, or pay for, developers fluent in CQL.

    Join Denise Gosnell, Distinguished Engineer at DataStax and Paras Mehra, Product Manager at DataStax, as they discuss:

    --How does the Stargate Data API gateway work with Cassandra?
    --How does Stargate fit into a Cassandra-based architecture?
  • Why use Cassandra-as-a-Service? Recorded: Apr 14 2021 44 mins
    Bhavani Rao, Product at DataStax and Tony Baer, Analyst at dbInsight
    A key challenge for Cassandra users, is that while Cassandra delivers the advantages of an always-on, highly scalable, highly performant database, it traditionally required considerable skill to deploy, create applications for and can be expensive to operate . Astra addresses these challenges head-on. As a Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), DataStax Astra eliminates the need for users to configure infrastructure, manage all the housekeeping, install drivers and reduce cost with a serverless option.

    Join us for this webinar with dbInsight and DataStax to learn how Cassandra-as-a-Service can:
    -Accelerate application development
    -Reduce TCO by 80% over on-premise Cassandra
    -Reduce architectural complexity
  • A Guide To Databases in the Cloud Recorded: Apr 8 2021 25 mins
    Cédrick Lunven, Director of Developer Advocacy at DataStax
    Why should you choose a NoSQL database? Today, I’ll share with you my thoughts on deploying databases in the cloud and how to embrace stateful applications in your journey. I'm hearing that many teams are behind in their fast, real-time data projects. If you feel the pressure to reach time-to-market goals while lowering costs, this session is for you!

    We'll cover how:

    - NoSQL databases, with their distributed system nature, fit well with Kubernetes deployments
    - We should stop thinking about database engines as monolithic systems; Interfaces, the routers, readings and writings can all scale storage independently.
    - You can change the underlying data components with serverless as you decouple services and data to bring down your TCO
    - Developers of Cassandra no longer have to be CQL experts and can innovate quickly using Stargate to work natively with Document (JSON), REST, and GraphQL APIs
