NoSQL database management systems give us the opportunity to store our data according to more than one data storage model, but our entity-relationship data modeling notations are stuck in SQL land. Is there any need to model schema-less databases, and is it even possible? In this short white paper, Ted Hills examines these questions in light of a recent paper from MarkLogic on the hybrid data model.

This paper explores the differences between three situations that appear on the surface to be very similar: a data attribute that may occur zero or one times, a data attribute that is optional, and a data attribute whose value may be unknown. It shows how each of these different situations is represented in Concept and Object Modeling Notation (COMN, pronounced “common”). The theory behind the analysis is explained in greater detail by three papers: Three-Valued Logic, A Systematic Solution to Handling Unknown Data in Databases, and An Approach to Representing Non-Applicable Data in Relational Databases.

Ever since Codd introduced so-called “null values” to the relational model, there have been debates about exactly what they mean and their proper handling in relational databases. In this paper I examine the meaning of tuples and relations containing “null values”. For the type of “null value” representing unknown data, I propose an interpretation and a solution that is more rigorously defined than the SQL NULL or other similar solutions, and which can be implemented in a systematic and application-independent manner in database management systems.

This paper argues a case for the use of coarse grained reconfigurable array (CGRA) architectures for the efficient acceleration of the data flow computations used in deep neural network training and inferencing. The paper discusses the problems with other parallel acceleration systems such as massively parallel processor arrays (MPPAs) and heterogeneous systems based on CUDA and OpenCL, and proposes that CGRAs with autonomous computing features deliver improved performance and computational efficiency. The machine learning compute appliance that Wave Computing is developing executes data flow graphs using multiple clock-less, CGRA-based System on Chips (SoCs) each containing 16,000 processing elements (PEs). This paper describes the tools needed for efficient compilation of data flow graphs to the CGRA architecture, and outlines Wave Computing’s WaveFlow software (SW) framework for the online mapping of models from popular workflows like Tensorflow, MXNet and Caffe.

This paper examines whether blockchain distributed ledger technology could improve the management of trusted information, specifically considering data quality. Improvement was determined by considering the impact of a distributed ledger as an authoritative source in TD Bank Group's Enterprise Data Quality Management Process versus the use of standard authoritative sources such as databases and files. Distributed ledger technology is not expected, or proven, to result in a change in the Data Quality Management process. Our analysis focused on execution advantages possible due to distributed ledger properties that make it an attractive resource for data quality management (DQM).

Graph databases are about to catapult across the famous technology adoption chasm and land in start-ups, enterprises and government agencies across the globe. The adoption antibodies are subsiding as the power of natively connected data becomes fundamental to any organization looking for data-driven insights across operations, suppliers, and customers. Moore’s Law increases in storage capacity and processing power can no longer keep up with the pace of data expansion, yet how companies structure and analyze their data ultimately will impact their ability to compete. Unstructured, disconnected data is useless. Graph databases will rapidly jump from niche use cases to a transformative IT technology as they enable turning the data you collect into actionable insights. Data will become the single most differentiating asset for your organization.

There are actually many elements of such a vision that are working together. ACID and NoSQL are not the antagonists they were once thought to be; NoSQL works well under a BASE model, but also some of the innovative NoSQL systems fully conform to ACID requirements. Database engineers have puzzled out how to get non-relational systems to work within an environment that demands high availability, scalability, with differing levels of recovery and partition tolerance. BASE is still a leading innovation that is wedded to the NoSQL model, and the evolution of both together is harmonious. But that doesn’t mean they always have to be in partnership; there are several options. So while the opening anecdote is true in many cases, organizations that need more diverse possibilities can move into the commercial arena and get the specific option that works best for them.

Interactive applications have changed dramatically over the last 15 years. In the late ‘90s, large web companies emerged with dramatic increases in scale on many dimensions: · The number of concurrent users skyrocketed as applications increasingly became accessible · via the web (and later on mobile devices). · The amount of data collected and processed soared as it became easier and increasingly · valuable to capture all kinds of data. · The amount of unstructured or semi-structured data exploded and its use became integral · to the value and richness of applications. Dealing with these issues was more and more difficult using relational database technology. The key reason is that relational databases are essentially architected to run a single machine and use a rigid, schema-based approach to modeling data. Google, Amazon, Facebook, and LinkedIn were among the first companies to discover the serious limitations of relational database technology for supporting these new application requirements. Commercial alternatives didn’t exist, so they invented new data management approaches themselves. Their pioneering work generated tremendous interest because a growing number of companies faced similar problems. Open source NoSQL database projects formed to leverage the work of the pioneers, and commercial companies associated with these projects soon followed. Today, the use of NoSQL technology is rising rapidly among Internet companies and the enterprise. It’s increasingly considered a viable alternative to relational databases, especially as more organizations recognize that operating at scale is more effectively achieved running on clusters of standard, commodity servers, and a schema-less data model is often a better approach for handling the variety and type of data most often captured and processed today.

The Age of Information and the associated growth of the World Wide Web has brought with it a new problem: how to actually make sense of all the information available. The overarching goal of the Semantic Web is to change that. Semantic Web technologies accomplish this goal by providing a universal framework to describe and link data so that it can be better understood and searched holistically, allowing both people and computers to see and discover relationships in the data. Today, organizations are leveraging the power of the Semantic Web to aggregate and link disparate data, improve search navigation, provide holistic search and discovery, dynamically publish content, and complete ETL processes faster. Read this white paper to gain insight into why Semantics is important, understand how Semantics works, and see examples of Semantics in practice.

Modern enterprises face increasing pressure to deliver business value through technological innovation that leverages all available data. At the same time, those enterprises need to reduce expenses to stay competitive, deliver results faster to respond to market demands, use real-time analytics so users can make informed decisions, and develop new applications with enhanced developer productivity. All of these factors put big data at the top of the agenda. Unfortunately, the promise of big data has often failed to deliver. With the growing volumes of unstructured and multi-structured data flooding into our data centers, the relational databases that enterprises have relied on for the last 40-years are now too limiting and inflexible. New-generation NoSQL (“Not Only SQL”) databases have gained popularity because they are ideally suited to deal with the volume, velocity, and variety of data that businesses and governments handle today.

As combinations of both internal and externally-imposed business policies imply dependencies on managed data artifacts, organizations are increasingly instituting data governance programs to implement processes for ensuring compliance with business expectations. One fundamental aspect of data governance involves practical application of business rules to data assets based on data elements and their assigned values. Yet despite the intent of harmonizing data element definitions and resolution of data semantics and valid reference values, most organizations rarely have complete visibility into the metadata associated with enterprise data assets.

Add Big Data Technologies to Get More Value from Your Stack Taking advantage of big data starts with understanding how to optimize and augment your existing infrastructure. Relational databases have endured for a reason – they fit well with the types of data that organizations use to run their business. These types of data in business applications such as ERP, CRM, EPM, etc., are not fundamentally changing, which suggests that relational databases will continue to play a foundational role in enterprise architectures for the foreseeable future. One area where emerging technologies can complement relational database technologies is big data. With the rapidly growing volumes of data, along with the many new sources of data, organizations look for ways to relieve pressure from their existing systems. That’s where Hadoop and NoSQL come in.

How do you get a machine learning system to deliver value from big data? Turns out that 90% of the effort required for success in machine learning is not the algorithm or the model or the learning - it's the logistics. Ted Dunning and Ellen Friedman identify what matters in machine learning logistics, what challenges arise, especially in a production setting, and they introduce an innovative solution: the rendezvous architecture. This new design for model management is based on a streaming approach in a microservices style. Rendezvous addresses the need to preserve and share raw data, to do effective model-to-model comparisons and to have new models on standby, ready for a hot hand-off when a production model needs to be replaced.
