Couchbase would like to thank Konstantin Tadenev, Principal Architect, and UPS for hosting our recent Customer Spotlight event at the UPS Innovations Center in Parsippany, NJ.

It was a terrific session for those who attended!Konstantin reviewed seven use-case categories that are prevalent for UPS (and all enterprises) where NoSQL technology has proven to be impactful.

Konstantin explored typical business and technology problems in modern IT, such as session management, mobility, and agility, to name a few. The presentation can be downloaded using the link in the Next Steps section of this blog.
