    I would be curious to see some samples of those propietary query languages with steep learning curves.;-)

    Nice article, nice overview of some Big Data approaches and technologies. Thanks. 🙂

    One of the main issues we see is how to integrate Big Data noSQL technologies with SQL, particularly SLQ systems already up and running but also from a new design starting point.

    This issue is of great interest to organizations that have SQL databases and related user-interface systems already, and need to consume/use newer non-structured data. Even in that case there are two important subsets: one where the data is petabytes or more and one can afford a major effort, and one where is it less but still a lot (perhaps up to a PB or so to start) and requiring analytics, but it is desired to be done as an add-on to a SQL-based database system with additional storage, and with software that integrates well with SQL. So I am looking forward as well to your next installment with the specific SQLServer example.

    The article is very good primer on big data.

    But anytime a manager type comes up and uses the word Hadoop, NoSQL, or MongoDB in my presence this link ends up in their e-mail. And then hopefully they follow the playlist (

    Then there are the possible downsides and regulatory issues. I live in a HIPAA world. I want to isolate each individual company's data as much as possible.

    I'm not against any of the technologies and the possibility of implementing it, but to implement it just because it is available is not a good strategy. And when I hear the word heap of data all I can picture is a pile of brown stuff with an odor wafting off of it.

    A little bit of this and a little byte of that can cause bloatware.
