From the Editor's Desk...

Big Data Acquisition and Retention  -  How do you determine when to import data into your warehouse, and how long to keep it? The key is statistical relevance. Today I try to clarify the concept a little better.

Statistically Relevant  -  One of the biggest problems when creating a data warehouse is determining what to put in it. Second to that question is, how often do I need to update my warehouse? What do you think; real time, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly?

No SQL Utilization  -  What is the total capacity of your NoSQL solution? What is your current allocation? When are you going to need to increase your capacity? Some of these numbers are easy to get. Others take more effort. In trying to control costs I found it difficult to predict the future simply using tools built into NoSQL.

Cloud Use Changing - Bursting?  -  IBM's Paul Zikopoulos is talking about the cloud as a hybrid, mixed environment is changing. Specifically, how you split up workloads and attack things is changing. What do you think?

Did you know? We have more than 30 free sessions online in days!  -  Security, big data, performance, administration sessions and so much more, but the time to register is NOW.

NoSql Meta Data  -  SQL data stores provide Meta Data capabilities by default. Table Record Counts, Structure, and even space allocation are readily available. What about NoSql. Some data stores have none of the above.

Project Implementation Strategies  -  How do you go about putting together a strategy for a computer project implementation? I've seen a number of techniques over time. They can cover selecting technology, establishing a project, or building a team. I think you'll find the few I have shared today quite entertaining, and probably familiar.

Web Sockets  -  Web Sockets is the HTTP implementation of a client/Server communication with event handlers. No longer must the Client initiate all communication in a browser. With Web Sockets, the server can initiate an action with the Client through a client subscription to server events.

Insider Threats to Data - Often Overlooked  -  As in retail theft, often the unwanted access to database information is from internal folks that have some access, but use it in ways you don't want. What options do you have for putting some defenses in place?
