Prof. Dr. Stefan Edlich - NoSQL: State of the Art & New Developments



A view into database popularity surveys shows: NoSQL has successfully infiltrated the DB landscape and will be here to stay. We start with a brief overview, trade-offs and synergies between all areas. This will bring us to cloud impacts, interesting new NoSQL Solutions and NoSQL areas with the biggest growth in the future. Additionally we try to convey some insights on testing NoSQL databases and to find most suitable solution.
