“Our data operation team had to be completely confident that our data platform could scale up alongside our company goals. We had to be sure that it had security built in from the start, and it had to have the same approach to data that we had in mind for the future. Based on the technologies available on the market, we chose DataStax Enterprise to support our growth.”

The Opportunity

Babylon Health needed to be able to scale its database rapidly to handle the increasing volume of patient data and also to be able to use that data to improve its healthcare service.

Things like personalized patient video consultations and around-the-clock symptom checking required a database that was flexible and easily scalable. Babylon also needed to deliver the highest levels of security, privacy, and access control.

Babylon also needed support for multiple cloud services to be able to expand internationally without being tied to specific cloud providers, and it needed to expand asset management automation to be able to support company growth with existing team resources.
