Developing Modern Applications with a Converged Database

Book description

Single-purpose databases were designed to address specific problems and use cases. Given this narrow focus, there are inherent tradeoffs required when trying to accommodate multiple datatypes or workloads in your enterprise environment. The result is data fragmentation that spills over into application development, IT operations, data security, system scalability, and availability.

In this report, author Alice LaPlante explains why developing modern, data-driven applications may be easier and more synergistic when using a converged database. Senior developers, architects, and technical decision-makers will learn cloud-native application development techniques for working with both structured and unstructured data. You'll discover ways to run transactional and analytical workloads on a single, unified data platform.

This report covers:

  • Benefits and challenges of using a converged database to develop data-driven applications
  • How to use one platform to work with both structured and unstructured data that includes JSON, XML, text and files, spatial and graph, Blockchain, IoT, time series, and relational data
  • Modern development practices on a converged database, including API-driven development, containers, microservices, and event streaming
  • Use case examples including online food delivery, real-time fraud detection, and marketing based on real-time analytics and geospatial targeting
