Faster Application Development with Cloudera Operational Database (COD) Demo Highlight

IT is no longer relegated to the IT group. Lines of business are building new business applications that can drive their business’s top and/or bottom lines. These applications are increasingly stateless -- meaning that they rely on their underlying operational database to manage their state and work with IT to build, deploy and manage the database infrastructure. The application development lifecycle is accelerating with the broad adoption of cloud and the rise of dbPaaS where the database is fully managed and self-optimizes for the applications. In this session, we will show you how the Cloudera Operational Database offers an accelerated on-ramp to app development by offering a modern multi-model database that eliminates infrastructure management.
