Sky is always striving to innovate and create great customer experience. Embracing digital transformation is key to providing personalised and customised content, but neither rich features nor personalisation have any value if applications cannot cope with peak demand. To ensure a high level of service and to avoid degradation, Sky transformed their application architecture and moved away from Oracle RDBMS to NoSQL technologies, using Couchbase for critical applications like cross platform authentication. This enabled: New levels of agility that’s driven even more innovation from the development team High performance at scale (12k transactions per second with 8m+ concurrent users) Guaranteed availability with features like Cross Datacenter Replication (XDCR) and multi-dimensional scaling.
You are invited to this exclusive roundtable dinner where Sky UK will talk through lessons learnt on their journey from Oracle to Couchbase and how this enabled product innovation. We will have an open discussion on current data challenges in today’s massively interactive enterprise and discuss ways you can optimise your own data architectures.
