While the hype surrounding "NoSQL" database technology has become deafening, there is real substance beneath the often exaggerated claims. NoSQL database technologies have emerged as a better match for the needs of modern interactive applications with cost-effective data management at "Big Data" scale. In this session we will specifically look at document databases and learn about:
  • The key characteristics of document-oriented databases
  • The differences between a distributed document-oriented and relational database
  • How the absence of a rigid database schema leads to more flexible applications
  • Why a NoSQL database may be the best fit for your requirements

Dipti Borkar is a Senior Product Manager at Couchbase where she is responsible for the company’s flagship product, Couchbase Server, a NoSQL database and works with customers and users to understand emerging requirements for low-latency, scalable data stores. Dipti has deep technical experience in the database industry having worked at IBM as a software engineer and Development Manager for the DB2 server team and then at MarkLogic as a Senior Product Manager.
