The Role of NoSQL and Graphs in the Total Data Landscape

I’ll be flying over to San Francisco at the weekend to attend and present at GraphConnect, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency on November 5 and 6.

Specifically, I’ll be giving a presentation on the role of NoSQL and graphs in the total data landscape, subtitled Big Data, Total Data, NoSQL, Graph, at 11.40am on November 6.

Here’s the overview: The database market is changing rapidly with new approaches emerging that provide an alternative to the relational data model. This presentation examines the drivers behind the rise of NoSQL data stores and, in particular graph databases, focusing on their use-cases and adoption trends, and exploring where graph database fit in the world of NoSQL, NewSQL, and big data.

I’ll also be moderating a panel at 5.05pm on November 6 comprised of enterprise companies that use graph databases in production. This panel includes 3-4 technical leads from Accenture, Cisco and Telenor Norway that will discuss what it takes to put large scale graph databases into production.

GraphConnect looks like a great event for anyone with experience with, or just interest in, graph databases. Keynotes will be provided by Emil Eifrém, CEO, Neo Technology, and James Fowler, co-author of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives.

The full agenda can be found here, and it’s not too late to register, here.

Forthcoming webinar: Choosing a Next-Gen Database

On Tuesday, November 13 at 12pm ET I’ll be taking part in a webinar in association with ScaleBase on the subject of Choosing a Next-Gen Database: The new world order of NoSQL, NewSQL & MySQL.

With the database market becoming increasing complex and changing on an almost daily basis, I’ll be providing an overview of this ever-changing market: discussing the benefits and drawbacks of NoSQL, NewSQL & MySQL databases and exploring real-life use cases for each.

Joining me will be Doron Levari and Paul Campaniello, both from ScaleBase, who will be discussing specific use cases of ScaleBase’s Data Traffic Manager, which is designed to enable next generation applications that require big data transactional processing, without changing the existing infrastructure.
