Data and database technologies are experiencing disruption. The volume of data collected is exploding, creating new potential for disruptive services and new companies. Data is distributed across locations in the cloud and the data center. Also, cloud technologies bring a plethora of database types, distribution options, analytics capabilities, and AI/ML processing. Any company not leveraging data to the benefit of its customers and business are just asking to be the next victim of disruption.

Speed, high volume data collection, distributed design, and scale are all challenges Nikita sees as vital for cloud-native applications of today and the future.
