Running operations at planet scale with Azure Cosmos DB

In order to run global operations 24x7 in a consistent manner, you need a very special type of architecture. At its core, such architecture needs to be supported by an underling data store to run scalable applications. Azure Cosmos DB is a cloud native service that is built from the ground up for scalable applications, and provides industry-leading enterprise-grade SLAs, low latency transactions, it’s multi-model + multi-API and is globally distributed. We will take a deep dive on some of the common uses cases of Cosmos DB, with a focus on globally distributed mission-critical applications in retail and e-commerce. We will look at how a global supply chain customer optimised their global operations to achieve operational excellence on Azure and with Cosmos DB running at the very heart of it. In addition to Cosmos DB, we will also cover other services such as Azure Functions, Azure Databricks, Power BI etc, and features such as “Cosmos DB Change Feed”. You will come out of the sessions with a deep insight of building business-critical applications to optimise global operations.
