Webinar: NoSQL as the New Normal
Tuesday April 23rd 11:00am PST / 2:00pm EST / 7:00pm GMT
What started as a way for web giants to solve problems of serious scale has become the default way all enterprises manage Big Data. Despite having a catchy, if inaccurate title, there really isn't a coherent "NoSQL" category, nor is there a simple future for the range of NoSQL databases. In this presentation, Matt Asay will outline the reasons for NoSQL's existence and persistence, how the different NoSQL technologies help enterprises get control of Big Data, and will identify the trends that point to a bright future for post-relational databases.
