Databases are the lifeblood of modern companies, providing them with the means for effectively managing critical business information. In this classroom, IT managers, data management professionals, business executives and others involved in buying and managing database systems will gain insight on several new and emerging technologies and get practical advice on how to take advantage of them. In a webcast, consultant William McKnight explains what NoSQL databases are, details how they differ from mainstream relational databases and provides tips on implementing and managing the technology. In a podcast Q&A, McKnight discusses in-memory databases, their potential uses and issues to consider before deploying them.
