When it comes to data management, there are three important components. There’s generating the data, which is often called online transaction processing (OLTP).

It’s becoming a more frequent question in IT departments: Should we migrate from Apache Cassandra to Amazon DynamoDB? It’s not a decision to be taken lightly.

Research shows that allowing employees to work remotely increases employee efficiency and morale while reducing overhead and real estate costs. For one company, however, it was also causing employee stress. To increase productivity and draw from a larger talent pool, a consulting firm had expanded its remote workforce.
