Big Data is officially the biggest buzzword of 2013. The problem is that so few people actually know what to do with all that data, and finding the mythical “data scientist” proves exceptionally difficult (http://bit.ly/16hKn9b).
Database management has changed substantially over the years. We are seeing many developers migrate away from SQL to NoSQL databases. Whether it is for financial reasons, scalability, or in preparation for handling Big Data, NoSQL is beginning to become a more viable option for many businesses. However, since many businesses that utilize non-relational databases have used relational databases for years, switching over can sometimes be a bit difficult. In order to help make that transition smoother, it’s important to be aware of the differences between training for SQL and NoSQL.
