Join this informative session to hear from Oracle Data Cloud's Principal Software Engineer discuss his team's use cases for a redesigned streaming system, along with the challenges encountered while prototyping various data stores to meet their needs and the client-side changes that ultimately made the project a success.

Come learn from this Oracle team:
• How they rebuilt their batch workflow with an innovative approach to streaming with Spark, Akka and Google Go
• Why they migrated from Apache Cassandra to Scylla
• What happens when you query wide rows at high throughput
• How they saved loads of $$$ by NOT using Redis

Oracle Data Cloud is a leading data-as-a-service (DaaS) offering that helps advertisers connect with the right customer, personalize every interaction and measure the effectiveness of each engagement. However, increasing runtime, costs and instability were causing some of the Fulfillment Team's legacy batch jobs to become an operational burden.

Come and learn how they solved these challenges at this information-packed session presented by Oracle Data Cloud's Principal Software Engineer, Aaron Stockton, and accompanied by Glauber Costa, Scylla NoSQL Database Architect.
