Emagine International talks about how their real-time decisioning platform enables CSPs to capitalize on massive amounts of data in real time with VoltDB.


There’s a lot of data out there, streaming in fast from hundreds to thousands of sources. Sensors, tick data, queries - it’s all headed towards your infrastructure at the speed of light. But can your data management system make that data work for your business?



Choose the right tool for the job: VoltDB, the world’s fastest in-memory NewSQL database. It scales, it’s incredibly fast at ingest and export, and it offers in-memory analytics to support in-the-moment decisioning.

"Companies that rely solely on Big Data to inform business actions are at risk of missing the boat. Leaders are realizing that managing Fast Data - which gives them the ability to make decisions the instant data arrives - is more important. Scott Jarr of VoltDB wrote the book on Fast Data."
