Why NoSql and why Informix NoSql?

Twitter Chat | February 20, 2014 - 12:00pm

Organizations are facing challenges in choosing between a relational or NoSQL database model. With unstructured data flooding into your organization from a wide range of connected devices and sources, customers are driven to embrace NoSQL database models for efficiently managing the unstructured data, while continuing to leverage your existing SQL-based data and investments.

What do customers expect from a NoSQL database model?

  • Enterprise-class capabilities and support
  • Ability to leverage new business patterns with hybrid SQL/NoSQL applications
  • Lower time-to-value and rapid application development
  • Ability to leverage skills to lower development costs and application development flexibility
  • Analytics with existing data and new data

In our next Twitter chat, James Kobielus (Senior Program Director, Product Marketing, Big Data Analytics solutions) along with Keshav Murthy (Senior architect for IBM Informix NoSQL & SQL) and Art Kagel (Informix Database consulting and training partner) will join us as we discuss “Why NoSQL and Why IBM Informix NOSQL.”
