Core Banking System Offloading

Load from electronic banking puts strain on core systems. In this webinar we discuss how to capture data changes in mainframe-based core banking system and replicate them to DataStax Enterprise (DSE) in real time using automatically generated C++ code. Electronic channels are redirected to DSE using existing legacy APIs. The presentation will discuss solution design, innovative approach to automatic code generation and lessons learned from the platform implementation.

A Relational Data Safari: Migrating Transactional Data to DataStax / Cassandra

Many applications are built with relational data structures in mind. What happens when that structure gets out of control? In this talk we take you on a tour of migrating a travel application to a lightning-fast DataStax/Cassandra data architecture. We look at challenges of denormalizing transactional data, designing a UI for hundreds of fields, and how our data model evolved to keep us on track.

Managing 400 Billion Requests with Zero Downtime for TurboTax

Intuit, through its flagship product TurboTax, manages an incredibly high volume of data and disparate data sets during tax season: roughly 400 billion requests with zero downtime. When Intuit began its migration to the public cloud, three technical challenges had to be addressed: Move Intuit’s tax persistence store running on 20+ Apache Cassandra clusters across multiple namespaces to the cloud, maintain zero downtime during the tax season and maintain a fallback option to Intuit’s private data centers As the team solved for these three challenges, Cassandra proved to be a valuable asset during this journey and a measurable improvement (from 100% manual to 100% automated) in Cassandra automation was achieved. In this talk, we will share our learnings, our automation journey, and how we managed to solve for availability, speed of migration, and fallback.

DataStax for High Volume, Real-Time Application

The real-time demands on modern business applications used by customers and frontline employees or partners have become so extreme that even disk and network access takes too long. It's not just the latency. In order to respond faster to each request or automate certain tasks, these applications have to process much larger data sets in real-time. Learn more about how American Airlines (AA) used DataStax to solve these challenges. This session will go through the architecture and technology choices to meet the requirements and SLAs of the business, and some of their initial requirements for evaluating various technologies.

5 Steps to an Awesome Apache Cassandra™ Data Model

"As more customers adopt digital channels over traditional brick and mortar stores and call center channels, there is a need to handle high traffic volume fluctuations, and ability to scale dynamically in a cost-efficient way. This is a common challenge faced across the industry. Verizon solved this challenge for its wireless OSS/BSS stack using DSE Cassandra and Spark. DSE enabled Verizon to transform its OSS/BSS platform from a legacy mainframe-based monolithic stack to a highly scalable cloud-enabled stack. This new platform enables better customer experience through high availability and scalability. Verizon was the only major wireless provider that was able to handle the Apple iPhone pre-order volume spike, and was available to take customer orders at 3 a.m. ET when the floodgates were opened. DSE migration addresses the economic scalability and low latency needs of 5G and IoT. In addition to the enhanced customer experience, the DSE migration eliminated 90% of operations cost. Migration of a large-scale application presents unique challenges that are not encountered in green field development. This presentation focuses on the challenges faced in adopting Cassandra for transactional data that is migrated from traditional RDBMS/mainframe. The presentation will cover details on the data model, data ingestion, and data reconciliation techniques that enables digital transformation."
