Requirements for the Modern Data Stack in a Microservices Oriented World

In order to build next decade’s competitive advantage, enterprises need to go beyond the early stages of digital transformation and embrace modern use cases characterized by the exponential growth of data and the utilization of real-time analytics to inform business decisions.

This entails not only building new applications or refactoring existing ones as microservices, but also moving certain workloads off relational monoliths to the modern data stack. Relational databases are poorly equipped to handle the demands of modern workloads involving either rich customer interactive applications or streaming industrial data.

Unlike relational monoliths, the modern data stack supports microservices oriented development patterns that free business logic from the data layer and place it in the application layer where it rightly belongs. It supports modern APIs that free developers from having to learn database languages before they can become productive. And just like microservices, the modern data stack is distributed and runs on Kubernetes.

Join DataStax as we discuss the requirements of the modern data stack in the world of microservices.
