Drew will be joined on stage by Aatif Din from Fanatics, a technology and data-fueled company that has become the world’s largest retailer of officially licensed sports merchandise, to discuss how the Fanatics team uses MemSQL to scale to meet customer demand and eliminate the need for costly ETL tools and complex processes.
“When buying goods online, everyone wants a smooth, seamless checkout experience,” said Aatif Din, Architect Data Science and Engineering at Fanatics. “Sports fans are no exception, and given how fast-paced and unpredictable the sports world is, we needed a database with capabilities like MemSQL that allowed us to stream data in real time.”
Why businesses choose MemSQL as their modern database
According to an Accenture study1, 79 percent of enterprise executives agree that companies that do not embrace big data will lose their competitive position and could face extinction. While companies are collecting and analyzing more data than ever, managing that data has become more difficult since many companies still rely on legacy offerings, NoSQL solutions, or specialized tools.
“The mammoth datasets we see today will continue to bloat, so adopting a database that does more will be a key enabler for businesses to extract valuable insights from their data faster and accelerate time to action,” said Drew Paroski, Vice President of Engineering, MemSQL.
To scale, businesses need to adopt modern databases that are distributed, SQL-based, and capable of running transactions and analytics concurrently in any environment. That way, teams can extract value and act on their data in real time.
Being highlighted by Fanatics at Strata, MemSQL’s uniqueness is allowing customers to accomplish more with a general-purpose database. As the fastest database in the world, MemSQL 6 was already capable of processing over 1 trillion rows per second and its latest version, MemSQL 6.5, processes queries up to four times faster. MemSQL enables customers to stream millions of events a day into its database and perform operational analytics at record speeds, allowing customers to build new intelligent applications or transform their businesses.
MemSQL is backed by GV, Accel, Caffeinated Capital and other investors, and recently raised $30 million in its Series D financing round.
