DataStax Helps IHS Markit Power Digital Catalog to Deliver Customer Experience

DataStax announced that IHS Markit uses DataStax Enterprise (DSE) along with the Microsoft Azure cloud platform to improve performance and increase revenue opportunities by unifying and automating its electronic parts database, the Parts Content Factory, into a single, powerful system. Using the tool, IHS Markit customers can quickly and accurately identify alternate component sources, optimize spend on electronic components, identify preferred manufacturers, and track and maintain regulatory compliance across the globe. The IHS Markit Parts Content Factory needed to be powerful, fast, and dependable, however the company encountered a challenge when managing the associated data across a disparate and disconnected mix of relational databases. In order to efficiently deliver full life cycle services, analytics and data, IHS Markit needed to create a comprehensive digital catalog and unify the database in a single system. IHS examined NoSQL distributed databases and determined that the DSE architecture would work the best with its datasets. With DSE's massively linear scalability, ring based clusters, wide columnar and CQL interface, DataStax Enterprise, built on Apache Cassandra™, won out over competing NoSQL technologies such as Apache Hadoop® and Apache HBase™. With DSE, IHS Markit can operationalize the growth of the Parts Content Factory to support temporary spikes in usage or business growth, whether it's organic or acquisition-based. With a stable, high-performance search and analytics capability, the Parts Content Factory performs reliably from one query to the next and from one user to the next. DSE, running on Microsoft Azure, enables IHS Markit to collect, validate, and distribute almost a full terabyte of content, converting it to value for their customers. Customers are then able to find the parts and insights they need, while IHS Markit increases revenue opportunities, and employees do more in less time and at a lower cost. Since utilizing DSE for their database needs, IHS Markit has experienced significant improvements, including: Increased revenue opportunities due to more reliable performance; Enablement of database team to do more in less time at a lower cost; More transparent and predictable costs; Reduced system maintenance time enabling increased business innovation; and leapfrog capabilities that deliver more value and keeps pace with the business.
