We are very pleased that Oracle NoSQL Database has been recognized as one of the leaders in the key-value NoSQL product category by Forrester Research. Please see http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/analystreports/forrester-wave-nosql-2348063.pdf for the full report.
In the past few years, we’ve witnessed growing adoption of NoSQL technologies to address specific data management problems. In many of the early adopter scenarios, the NoSQL applications were developed and managed as self-contained, standalone repositories of semi-structured data.
In recent months, it has become clear that such data silos are very expensive to implement and maintain. Big data and NoSQL users now understand that well integrated NoSQL and SQL systems are the key to effective data management in today’s world. An integrated set of products for managing NoSQL and relational data is critical for delivering business value in a cost effective manner. Oracle NoSQL Database is fully integrated with Oracle Database and related technologies, thus making it an excellent choice for enterprise-grade, mission-critical NoSQL applications. As mentioned in the Forrester Wave report, “Many Oracle customers use Oracle NoSQL to balance the need for scale-out workloads of simpler key-value data, with the rich set of relational data management capabilities needed in their core business systems, or when supporting new applications that have frequently changing key-value data, such as profiles for fraud, personalization, and sensor data management”.
