A few months ago I was asked to give a two hours lecture to a group of CIOs. The topic was a bit vague – “Introduction to Big Data and NoSQL” but I agreed to give it a try anyway.
Since I feel Big Data is such a big topic and since I really wanted to give the CIO so added value, I created this presentation. The aim of the presentation wasn’t to cover all the technological aspects of the topic, but to give some overview and pointers for the future. We talked about basic principles, issues that needs tackling, and solution that might be relevant in the near future. We also talked about NoSQL in order to understand the relation between RDBMS based solution and other kind of solutions.
