The team at DATAVERSITY™ has announced that “John O’Donovan, Director, Technical Architecture and Development at the UK’s Press Association (a leading content and media services provider) and one of the world’s foremost media technology designers, will give a keynote presentation to this year’s NoSQL Now! Conference & Expo at the San Jose Convention Center August 21 – 23.”
The announcement continues, “On August 23rd from 9:10 – 9:45 AM, O’Donovan will discuss the advanced methods used to build the next generation of content delivery platforms for the London Olympics. During his session O’Donovan will share on how his team did – just weeks after the Olympic experience – using a combination of NoSQL technologies including graph databases, XML, RDF and linked data, to deliver new media capabilities on the world’s biggest stage.”
It goes on, “O’Donovan was formerly the Chief Technical Architect of BBC News and Sport delivering the acclaimed BBC World Cup website in 2010 which pioneered approaches to NoSQL technology including utilizing semantic and linked data, but the architectural approach has been taken much further into the core of the business by the Press Association, especially for key elements of the Olympics this year and many of their other services. PA is the appointed Host National News Agency for the London 2012 Olympic Games.”
