Prioritizing Security, Stability, and Client Satisfaction: Insight from Fiserv’s VP and Fellow Architect
Dimitri Farafonov, VP and Fellow Architect at Fiserv, recently sat down to discuss his role at this top global fintech and payments company. During the conversation, he discussed the priorities that guide Fiserv’s database selection process, along with the complexities involved in working to achieve low latency, data consistency, and massive bi-directional scalability, which are critical to Fiserv’s operations.
As 2022 comes to an end, organizations will continue to shift their focus from using monolithic solutions to distributed SQL databases that better align with their cloud native architectures. And that is not the only shakeup we expect to see in the new year!
Check out our top 2023 database predictions based on trends we already see taking shape.
Recently, I came across a sample e-commerce application that demonstrates how to use Next.js, GraphQL engine, PostgreSQL, and a few other frameworks to build a modern web application. The application supports basic e-commerce capabilities such as product inventory and order management, recommendation system, and checkout function.

In this blog post, we’ll explore why Abra Controls needed a new database. We’ll detail why it chose YugabyteDB. We’ll then discuss how the company used YugabyteDB Managed to implement its IoT application.
Perspectives from 5 years of building a cloud native database
YugabyteDB just turned 5 years old, and I cannot help but reminisce about our journey in building this database over the last half-decade. I vividly remember the genesis of the YugabyteDB project, which started with Kannan, Mikhail, and myself meeting for lunch at a restaurant to discuss the future of cloud native databases. After iterating on the idea over a number of such discussions,
