NoSQL database market is expected to grow at a rate three times faster than that of the SQL market during the next few years, understandably making newcomers to big data technology eager to understand why and how it fits into their organizations. The needs for speed, scale, continuous availability, location independence, ability to manage all types of data, and cost reduction are driving this increasing adoption. Barriers to adoption have certainly existed, from the technical to the non-technical, and it’s important to examine those along with improvements that have developed in the NoSQL ecosystem.

This paper examines these topics and provides practical implementation strategy tips, including a selection checklist and migration pointers.
