For those of you who read my blog regularly, you know that I’ve been evaluating NuoDB, a new database company that is re-writing the rules for relational databases. They’ve introduced a new category – Cloud Data Management Systems (CDMS) – and are claiming to be the first and only.
In an effort to ‘demystify CDMS’, they’re kicking-off a 5 part webcast series where industry experts, analysts, customers and partners will join NuoDB to cover a range of topics related to managing data in the cloud.
If you’re curious about the difference between a CDMS and a NoSQL store, NewSQL or even a 1980s RDBMS, like I am, this would be a good webcast to attend.
The first one starts tomorrow, Feb 19, at 12:00 p.m. EST. It features Principal Analyst from Ovum, Tony Baer, and NuoDB’s CEO Barry Morris, and promises to cover:
- Cloud database adoption, challenges and opportunities
- What it means to be in the Cloud vs. on the Cloud
- 12 Rules of CDMS and the need for Emergence
- NewSQL vs. NoSQL vs. SQL
Tony Baer leads Ovum`s Big Data research practice. Over his 25 years in the industry, Baer has studied issues of data integration, software and data architecture, middleware, and application development. Having tracked the emergence of BI and data warehousing back in the 1990s, Baer sees similar parallels emerging in the world of big data today and discusses this frequently in his blog and Twitter feed. Baer’s coverage focuses on how Big Data must become a first class citizen in the data center, IT organization, and the business. He’s definitely someone worth listening to!
And as many of you know, Barry Morris also has over 25 years of industry experience in the USA and Europe, running private and public companies ranging in scale from early startup phase to 1,000+ employees. He loves to build companies around industry-changing paradigm-shifts in technology. Another great person to hear from!
