Cloud Talk (CT113): Achieving Cloud Maturity @ METRONOM

3.5 years ago at METRO, we decided to become a digital player and to change the way we build and run software. We moved from on-premise, waterfall and commercial systems to cloud, agile and open-source, working with DataStax and Cassandra. To take us to the next stage, teams will need more flexibility of what and how they use cloud infrastructure. Since most of our application teams are already using Cassandra as a main data store, the new DataStax Apollo on Google Cloud promises to deliver this flexibility with very low effort and maintenance.
