This use case is based on an article originally published here.

As the pandemic hit and businesses around the world began to pivot to digital, The Home Depot, the largest home improvement chain in the world, quickly shifted its focus to its mobile app and website.

To achieve this, it worked with DataStax to deploy an application for “curbside pick-up” in a few short weeks, quickly scaling it for nationwide deployment. This pivot dramatically boosted the company’s profitability, with digital sales soaring 86% and revenues growing by 20% to $132 billion in 2020.

The Home Depot’s advantage was its digitalization journey, which began in 2018, and its use of DataStax Enterprise, a hybrid cloud NoSQL database built atop open-source Apache Cassandra. The database allowed the company to scale quickly and handle over 1.5 billion customer transactions in 2020, showcasing new capabilities and ways for customers to engage with the brand.
