MobilePay Taps DataStax Enterprise for Leading Payments Application

MobilePay has quickly become Denmark’s go-to payments application. While the success has been welcomed and expected, it’s also come with major challenges on the data management side. 

To be able to handle the spike in application users and transactional volume, MobilePay’s IT team needed to completely rethink its data management strategy and switch to a cloud-based infrastructure that uses a microservices-based approach to building modern applications.

Migrating away from the mainframe we had was challenging, but we saw huge benefits around delivering new functionality back to the business. If we had remained on the mainframe and without DataStax, it would have been extremely difficult to meet those requests in a timely manner, if at all.

The Opportunity

MobilePay, Denmark’s leading payments application, found itself inundated with new users and needed to completely revamp its data management strategy to handle the huge increase in volume. With its mainframe system failing, the company set its eyes on the cloud.

In order to successfully transition to a highly distributed computing environment that could scale easily and handle their rapidly growing amount of transactional data, MobilePay needed to switch a modern, microservices-based approach to application design.

The company chose DataStax Enterprise to migrate from mainframes to microservices, support its new distributed computing environment, scale easily in a private cloud environment, and continue to grow successfully.
