The old paradigm of working with databases meant cramming tons of data into your SQL farm, data warehouse, Hadoop cluster, or whatever and running big expensive batch jobs to drive decisions for your business.

With these traditional approaches you miss a lot of opportunities to react data at pivotal moments, for example:

1. Presenting targeted offers to customers at the point of sale;
2. Making personalized recommendations to users on their first run of your product; or
3. Reacting to changes in sensor data as they happen, rather than days later.

Meet the actor system, a time-tested, proven technology that is a perfect processing companion to Cassandra's massively scalable storage solution. With these two tools working in unison you can capitalize on lost opportunities and build reactive, scalable software. In this talk we'll talk about using actor system frameworks like Akka in concert with DataStax Enterprise.
