Webinar: Making the Shift from Relational to NoSQL

Date: September 19, 2013 at 3pm CEST

While the hype surrounding “NoSQL” (non-relational) 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. Developers accustomed to relational database technology need to approach things differently.

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • The main characteristics of document-oriented databases
  • Differences between a distributed document-oriented and relational database
  • Implications for application development when moving from RDBMS to NoSQL
