Building on Multi-Model Databases

Book Description

In many organizations today, businesspeople are busy requesting unified views of data stored across multiple sources within their organizations. But integrating multiple data types from multiple data stores is a complex, error-prone, and time-consuming process of cobbling everything together manually. This concise book examines how multi-model databases can help you integrate data storage and access across your organization in a seamless and elegant way.

Author Pete Aven and Diane Burley from MarkLogic explain how this latest evolution in data management naturally accepts heterogeneous data, enabling you to eventually phase out technical data silos. Through several case studies, you’ll discover how organizations use multi-model databases to reduce complexity, save money, take advantage of opportunities, lessen risk, and shorten time to value.
