SQL cannot solve several problems emerging with big data. NoSQL comes to the rescue, but therefore it does not use SQL as its query language or give full ACID guarantees. Thus, in the future you will have to integrate these NoSQL databases as you integrate SQL databases today.
Different open source frameworks and tools are already prepared for this challenging task. This session demonstrates elegant alternatives for NoSQL integration without writing a lot of boilerplate glue code and complex mapping. Several examples are shown for all different concepts of NoSQL databases by integrating MongoDB (Document Store), HBase (Column-oriented), Neo4j (Graph), Amazon Web Services S3 (Key Value Store), and others.
