As technology continues to evolve rapidly at a grand scale, IT organizations must take extra steps to create innovative and scalable solutions for their clients. Each year, the InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards identify cutting-edge software and hardware solutions making waves in the industry. 

Selected by InfoWorld editors and reviewers, the annual awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape. Winners are drawn from products tested during the past year, with the final selections made by InfoWorld’s Reviews staff. 

“We are honored to be recognized as an innovator in our industry,” said DataStax President, Steve Rowland. “This award identifies us as a leading, forward-thinking technology company that delivers the data management platform of choice for enterprises needing to build applications that are contextual, always-on, real time, distributed, and scalable.”

DSE stood out for its ability to “run massively scalable global data infrastructure” with masterless design, according to InfoWorld Reviews staff. DataStax understood that Apache Cassandra can be difficult to deploy and manage so it created DSE, a data layer with added functions for improved performance, analytics, graph applications, search, and data management. 

Enterprise organizations, including eBay, Equinix, and Capital One, have undergone a digital transformation by using DSE for large-scale applications.
