Big Data
Demystifying Big Data and NoSQL

Big Data is here to stay and with it comes a deluge of new buzzwords and acronyms. Phrases like NoSQL; Document Database; Velocity, Volume, and Variety; Hadoop; and Map Reduce are now commonplace. To complicate matters further, different people define these phrases slightly differently. Jon Mills explains what Big Data really means and pulls back the curtain on the buzzwords surrounding it. Jon explains the origins of NoSQL, what the various NoSQL databases are, and when each is used. He walks you through the concept of MapReduce and how this tool allows manipulation and aggregation of massive amounts of data in your enterprise. Jon helps you understand what these various new technologies are all about and how they can impact you and your business. Take back the information you need to make informed decisions about who should use these tools in your enterprise—and when and where.
