Software Architecture for Big Data Systems

July 2014 Webinar
Ian Gorton

Watch Ian Gorton discuss software architecture for big data systems.


Software Engineering Institute



The wide variety and different characteristics of NoSQL databases creates a complex technology acquisition and design landscape for organizations looking to build scalable, high performance data management systems. In addition, scalable 'big data' systems are significant long-term investments that must scale to handle ever-increasing data volumes, and therefore represent high risk applications in which the software and data architectures are fundamental components of ensuring success. This talk describe how we are developing a software and data architecture knowledge base and technology evaluation approach specifically targeted at big data systems and NoSQL technology adoptions.
