Banking on Digital Transformation with DataStax Enterprise

Australia’s largest investment bank, Macquarie was seeking to provide a more human and intuitive experience than traditional brick and mortar banks by building fast, intimate, and personalized banking applications for its customers.

To create these online and mobile applications that give customers the power to take control of their finances, Macquarie needed a scalable, flexible, always-on database with real-time capabilities.

The Opportunity

A global diversified financial group with more than 14,000 staff in 25 countries, Macquarie is the world's largest infrastructure asset manager and Australia's top-ranked mergers and acquisitions adviser, managing more than $350 billion in assets.

Founded in the late 1960s, Macquarie recently began a digital transformation initiative to disrupt the banking industry and get ahead of its more traditional brick and mortar competitors via highly personalized and intuitive banking applications.

To achieve this, Macquarie needed an always-on hybrid cloud database with the real-time capabilities that could allow it to build the game-changing banking applications it needed to up the ante for itself and its competitors.
