It seems like new databases are popping up every day – all of them latching onto the hype around Big Data. This session will help you to make sense of the madness, separate marketing hype from reality, and understand when you want to use NewSQL, NoSQL, KeyValue, Document-Oriented, etc. and the tradeoffs that are part of that decision.
This session will provide you with up to the minute information on our most aggressive and innovative roadmap in years. Come to find out what we are working on for the next versions of DataDirect Connect and DataDirect OpenAccess, our SDK for developing new drivers.
This session will provide an overview of DataDirect Cloud, an exciting new service offering that provides access to data from ANY source through the standards based interfaces you know and love, ODBC and JDBC.
The magic underlying DataDirect Cloud is our ability to make any data source appear to be a SQL compliant database. This session will give an in-depth overview of how we perform this mapping for NoSQL and SaaS datasources.
