The growth of NoSQL data storage solutions have revolutionized the way enterprises are dealing with their data. The older, relational platforms are still being utilized by most organizations, while the implementation of varying NoSQL platforms including Key-Value, Wide Column, Document, Graph, and Hybrid data stores are increasing at faster rates than ever seen before. Such implementations are causing enterprises to revise their Data Management procedures across-the-board from governance to analytics, metadata management to software development, data modeling to regulation and compliance. The time-honored techniques for data modeling are being rewritten, reworked, and modified in a multitude of different ways, often wholly dependent on the NoSQL platform under development. The research report analyzes a 2015 DATAVERSITY® survey titled “Modeling NoSQL.” The survey examined a number of crucial issues within the NoSQL world today, with focus on data modeling in particular.

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 document provides a complete reference for the Concept and Object Modeling Notation (COMN, pronounced “common”), release 1.1. The book NoSQL and SQL Data Modeling (Technics Publications, 2016) reflects release 1.0 of COMN. This is a reference, not a tutorial. This document is designed to support a quick check of how to draw or notate something in COMN.

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.

As the interest in managing information and enforcing corporate data management policies increases, data governance programs to manage data sets are becoming more and more vital to the business operation. However, in this rush for data governance programs, sometimes the true utility and importance of metadata can be missed. In this white paper, David Loshin of Knowledge Integrity, Inc. discusses the importance of data governance and the role of metadata management as a way to empower data governance and enforce data policies.

NoSQL database technology is increasingly chosen as viable alternative to relational databases, particularly for interactive web applications. Developers accustomed to the RDBMS structure and data models need to change their approach when transitioning to NoSQL. Download this white paper to learn about the main challenges that motivates the need for NoSQL, the differences between relational databases and distributed document-oriented databases, the key steps to perform document modeling in NoSQL databases, and how to handle concurrency, scaling and multiple-place updates in a non-relational database.

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.

Everything about data has changed, but that only means that data models are even more essential to understanding that data so that businesses can know what it means. As development methodologies change to incorporate Agile workflows, data architects must adapt to ensure models stay relevant and accurate. This whitepaper describes key requirements for Agile data modeling and shows how ER/Studio supports this methodology.

Entity-relationship (E-R) modeling is a tried and true notation for use in designing Structured Query Language (SQL) databases, but the new data structures that Not-Only SQL (NOSQL) DBMSs make possible can’t be represented in E-R notation. Furthermore, E-R notation has some limitations even for SQL database design. This article shows how a new notation, the Conceptual and Objective Modeling (COM) notation, is able to represent NOSQL designs that are beyond the reach of E-R notation. At the end, it gives a peek into the tutorial workshop to be given at the 2015 NOSQL Conference in San Jose, CA, US, in August, which will provide opportunities to apply COM notation to practical problems.

Increasing dependence on enterprise-class applications has created a demand for centralizing organizational data using techniques such as Master Data Management (MDM). The development of a useful MDM environment is often complicated by a lack of shared organizational information and data modeling. In this paper, David Loshin explores some of the root causes that have influenced an organization’s development of a variety of data models, how that organic development has introduced potential inconsistency in structure and semantics, and how those inconsistencies complicate master data integration.

Data modeling is all about data definition but has a much wider impact on the data of your organization. Quality data definition impacts how data is produced and directly impacts how the data is or will be used throughout an organization. That means that we must proactively govern the process of how we define data, to establish a common understanding across the team. In this whitepaper, Robert Seiner describes how data modeling is a form of data governance and provides insights on the three actions of governing data.

The focus of modern business intelligence has been self-service; pushing data into the hands of end users more quickly with more accessible user interfaces so they can get answers fast and on their own. This has helped alleviate a major BI pain point: centralized, IT-dominated solutions have been too slow and too brittle to serve the business. What has been masked is a lack of innovation in data modeling. Data modeling is a huge, valuable component of BI that has been largely neglected. In this webinar, we discuss Looker’s novel approach to data modeling and how it powers a data exploration environment with unprecedented depth and agility. Topics covered include: • A new architecture beyond direct connect • Language-based, git-integrated data modeling • Abstractions that make SQL more powerful and more efficient
