Big Data is a hot topic today - and the challenge it presents has resulted in an explosion of new database technologies to store and manage it. This session will be an introductory course for anyone interested in learning about some of the new technologies for managing Big Data, with a focus on both NewSQL and NoSQL databases. The presenters will explore the use cases they’re designed for and strengths and weaknesses of each approach.


David McFarlane, founder and CEO of Akiban Technologies, will also discuss how big data is increasingly a challenge for operational systems as businesses are pushed to deliver insight and action in real-time. Akiban develops a new kind of database that incorporates the agility of a NoSQL document store with a transactional SQL database.


Presenting with David will be Bob Buffone from Yottaa. Yottaa is a Boston-based cloud computing company focused on web performance. Bob will speak about their experience using MongoDB, a NoSQL solution.


The presenters will also engage the attendees in an interactive session focused on real-world use cases.
