Cars.com - Accelerating the deployment of engaging customer applications

The mission of Cars.com is to be the leading decision engine that moves people through the car ownership cycle with transparent, fun, and engaging experiences. To meet the constantly rising expectations of its customers, the company needed a modern database that would allow them to release and update applications quickly and easily on premises and in the cloud. After a rigorous vendor selection process that included proofs of concept from five solutions providers, Cars.com selected Couchbase for its powerful yet flexible cloud-native architecture.
