InfoWorld: The 10 worst big data practices

I can haz big data

It's a new world full of shiny toys, but some have sharp edges. Don't hurt yourself or others. Learn to play nice with them

Yes, you can haz big data. However, you can haz it the right way or the wrong way. Here are the top 10 worst practices to avoid.

Infoworld: DataStax Enterprise 4.5 Turbocharges speed and security

Infoworld: MongoDB grows up -- and shows off its enterprise cred

At the MongoDB World conference, the NoSQL darling got new enterprise-grade features and a Fortune 500 hug. Can MongoDB survive the embrace?

I'm an unabashed fan of MongoDB, the only NoSQL database just about everyone has heard of.

Developers love it because it supports a flexible data model that makes building apps much easier than with SQL databases.

What Hadoop and Big Data will mean to you -- An Executive Overview

When I was at JBoss I’d frequently be asked (usually at conferences), “Where will J2EE be in five years?” I would usually answer something that sounded good, but in the back of my head I always had the same answer: “irrelevance.” That future has happened to some degree: First J2EE was renamed JavaEE, but that is cheating. Second, the kind of companies that say “new JavaEE initiative” are usually running RPG, Mainframes and COBOL, and are doing this in the big company way (i.e. headhunter’s paradise).
