DataStax Helps Elementum Scale and Analyze Data for New Application
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 13, 2017 — DataStax, a leading provider of database software for cloud applications, today announced that Elementum, a cloud-based supply chain platform, will use DataStax Enterprise (DSE) to develop an innovative and intelligent platform that provides its customers with an in-depth look at every step within their supply chain.
With Fortune 500 customers that span the healthcare, food & beverage, industrial, consumer, retail, and technology sectors, Elementum’s business needs require a robust and highly adaptable platform. Elementum wanted to be able to roll out applications and services to all of their customers simultaneously, but were held back by the constraints of their database software. Elementum chose DSE as an integral part of their infrastructure to securely store and manipulate large amounts of data, solving a major challenge for their business.
“Our business is growing fast, and we needed a solution that wouldn’t just provide us with the right capabilities, but could also scale with us. Previously, our IT team was forced to reconfigure our infrastructure for every new business demand, causing our business to move slower than we wanted. DataStax Enterprise gives us the best of both worlds. DSE’s scalability and analytics capabilities provide us what we need to not only analyze every aspect of the supply chain, but also bring new innovations to market,” said Minh Chau, Head of Engineering, Elementum.
“Elementum is a fantastic example of a company leveraging the value of global data to transform the way countless industries run their operations. We are proud to partner with Elementum and are excited to see the impact DSE will have in helping them grow as a business,” said Karl Van den Bergh, CMO, DataStax.
