Rally and Datomic

Rally is a fun customer for us - a company making software for companies who make software.  They were listed as a leader in Gartner's 2013 Magic Quadrant for Application Development Life Cycle Management. Their focus is on agile software development, which means their tools have to be fast and responsive - pushing live, actionable information to their users in close to real-time.  Rally uses Datomic to provide that real-time collaboration to their backend storage, while at the same time allowing them to de-couple their architecture from those storages and trade them out as needed.

Room Key Innovates on AWS with Cognitect, Clojure and Datomic


Room Key competes in the crowded, conservative hospitality market. Its CTO Colin Steele chose Clojure before we even spoke to him, and you can read his original account of that decision. Clojure was the right combination of performance and simplicity – accelerating the team’s efforts and codebase. Room Key partnered with Cognitect for support and expertise in Clojure, and we embedded developers, designers and project managers with its team to deliver on its road map. Later, Room Key adopted Datomic to leverage DynamoDB more effectively, since its team built the system natively on AWS.

The Brigade and Datomic

The Brigade is a software team after our own hearts - a development partner with a keen focus on powerful, enabling technology and a deep sense of the power of good design, in every sense of the word.  When building a social music application for their customer, Spotify, they had already chosen AWS as a deployment platform and DynamoDB as the storage engine.  They turned to Datomic to add critical database features on top of DynamoDB, and to give their development team the flexibility to keep up with rapidly changing requirements.
