Last week’s Strata + Hadoop World conference in San Jose, Calif., ended on a perfect note! Over the years the event has evolved from merely discussing the power of Big Data analytics to actually implementing emerging technologies to discover relationships within that data.
After gathering my notes from the conversations that I had with the attendees who visited our booth, I can sum up my Strata experience with these two takeaways:
Graph databases are the key to extracting more value from Big Data
A lack of scalability is the primary limitation of other graph technologies
Objectivity, Inc., the enterprise NOSQL leader enabling real-time Big Data Analytics, along with our newest system integration partner HM Informatik AG, one of the most efficient IT partners in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, are co-exhibiting at the NoSQL Matters Conference from May 29 – 30, 2012 in Cologne, Germany. The event features over 300 experts from around the world with a comprehensive insight into innovation and perspectives on the topic of NOSQL.
At the conference, Brian Clark, VP of Product Management at Objectivity, will be discussing the latest trends in Big Data Analytics, defining what is Big Data and understanding how to maximize your existing architectures by utilizing NOSQL technologies to improve functionality and provide real-time results. There will be a focus on relationship analytics as well as an introduction to NOSQL data stores, object and graph databases, such as the architecture behind Objectivity/DB and InfiniteGraph.
Visit Objectivity’s booth at NoSQL Matters today or tomorrow to see the latest demo’s of InfiniteGraph, Objectivity’s scalable and distributed graph database.

Here’s another piece from GigaOm’s Derrick Harris, who is diving into NOSQL’s new and innovative solutions, from both a technology and business perspective.
“The challenge for NoSQL members going forward — if they care to — will be to keep the community spirit strong as commercial interests grow even stronger. Given the relative immaturity of the market, there’s certainly something to be said about maintaining the communal vibe and openly discussing their various projects in mass meetups in Silicon Valley and across the country. A rising tide lifts all boats, after all.”
Tim Anglade has put together an impressive archive of video interviews and NOSQL events, which InfiniteGraph helped support and sponsor over a 10 week period (from October to December 2010). It is “a filmed compilation of interviews, explanations and case studies pertaining mostly to non-relational (NOSQL) databases.”

And here’s a recent editorial written about the site, which has become a major resource for NOSQL education and learning.

Got a mention on an excellent resource, High Scalability. GlueCon gathers many of the cloud industry’s innovative leaders, to bring insight to the community. Darren Wood is one of the industry’s experienced graph database architects who has implemented real-world solutions. His presentation, cited on High Scalability, provides insights on how distributed graph databases will solve our most challenging graph problems.
