Presentation: Polyglot persistence with NoSQL

Time: Thursday 11:50 - 12:35 / Location: Index

Alternative data persistence technologies like NoSQL emerged since more than 10 years, but we developers hesitate to open our horizon for these new approaches. Why should we? Relational databases dominated the IT industry for a long time and served us very well. Everybody knows SQL and is used to the relational data model with all its advantages and disadvantages.

But the one who are looking beyond their borders will find a richness of NoSQL technologies and products. Every product has its own properties and characteristics. How can we differentiate them? Is it all about smart decisions, or do we have more possibilities? We will go into the world of NoSQL and explain the different kind of NoSQL products, when to use them and what is about polyglot persistence to be.
