Presentation: NoSQL and the Wild West of Database by Dr. Mark Gillenson of the University of Memphis

 

Abstract:
After many years of standardization on relational database, the last few years have seen the introduction of four new data management paradigms: Key-Value Database, Big Table Database, Document Database, and Graph Database (and, by one estimate, at least 250 new DBMS products on the market that implement them.) This talk will explain these four technologies in a largely conceptual, product-independent, data structures-oriented manner, with the goal of really understanding what they are all about.

3:30 – 4:00 pm
