Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems.
Data Lakes are a new and increasingly popular way to store and analyse data that addresses many of these challenges. Data Lakes allow an organization to store all of their data, structured and unstructured, in one, centralized repository.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.
Managing technology refreshes is not a popular task among enterprise storage administrators, although it is a necessary task for successful businesses. As a business evolves, managing more data and adding new applications in the process, enterprise storage infrastructure inevitably needs to grow in performance and capacity. Enterprise storage solutions have traditionally imposed limitations in terms of their ability to easily accommodate technology refreshes that keep infrastructure current and operating reliably and most cost effectively. In 2015, Pure Storage introduced a new technology refresh model that has driven strong change in the enterprise storage industry by addressing the major pain points of legacy models and provided overall a much more cost-effective life-cycle management approach. In conjunction with other aspects of Pure Storage's enterprise storage product and services offerings, the company's "Evergreen Storage" technology refresh model has contributed to this all-f

Big Data has been in the spotlight recently, as businesses seek to leverage their untapped information resources and win big on the promise of big data. However, the problem with big data initiatives are that organizations try using existing information management practices and legacy relational database technologies, which often collapse under the sheer weight of the data. In this paper, MarkLogic explains how a new approach is needed to handle the volume, velocity, and variety of big data because the current relational model that has been the status quo is not working. Learn about the NoSQL paradigm shift, and why NoSQL is gaining significant market traction because it solves the fundamental challenges of big data, achieving better performance, scalability, and flexibility. Learn how MarkLogic’s customers are reimagining their data to:
- Make the world more secure
- Provide access to valuable information
- Create new revenue streams
- Gain insights to increase market share
- Reduce b

You’ve probably heard about NoSQL, and you may wonder what it is. NoSQL represents a fundamental change in the way people think about storing and accessing data, especially now that most of the information generated is unstructured or semi-structured data — something for which existing database systems such as Oracle, MySQL, SQLServer, and Postgres aren’t well suited. NoSQL means a release from the constraints imposed on database management systems by the relational database model.
This free eBook, Enterprise NoSQL for Dummies, MarkLogic Special Edition, provides an overview of NoSQL. You’ll start to understand what it is, what it isn’t, when you should consider using a NoSQL database instead of a relational database management system and when you may want to use both. In addition, this book introduces enterprise NoSQL and shows how it differs from other NoSQL systems, as well as explains when NoSQL may not be the right solution for your data storage problem. You’ll also learn the NoSQ
