Auditability: Don’t Bolt it On. Build Systems that Never Forget, using Datomic

Cognitect believes that data is the most valuable asset for modern businesses, especially for financial services firms. Unfortunately, most companies have locked away a lot of those assets in multiple datastores and are missing the most valuable part: the history of that data and the stories that history could tell you about how your business arrived at today. Cognitect couples our proprietary database (Datomic), with its accumulate-only approach to data and built in auditability, with a proven approach to developing robust, distributed systems to allow firms to innovate quickly and create valuable streams of information and knowledge from their data assets.

Some people get excited about fast cars. Tim gets excited about fast code. Nothing makes his day more than when someone asks him to improve the performance of an inner loop. He believes strongly that only by understanding all layers of modern computing can a programmer completely be aware of the consequences of their code.
