What Is Data Migration?

Data migration describes transferring data between storage types, formats or computer systems with as little change as possible. Due to acquisitions, relocation, or outgrowing a current system, companies find the need to migrate data. More than just a “lift and shift” approach, good  data migration catalyzes rethinking of Data Strategy and Data Architecture through: Upgrading […]

What Is Data Security?

Data security describes the implementation of policies and procedures to ensure people and things take the right actions with data and information assets, even in the presence of malicious inputs. The right actions mean controlling and enabling data activity by balancing needs from: Stakeholders: Protect personal information while allowing access for legitimate transactions agreed upon […]

What Is Cognitive Computing?

Cognitive computing, a subfield of artificial intelligence, simulates human thought processes in machines using self-learning algorithms through data mining, pattern recognition, and natural language processing. These artificial environments rely on deep learning algorithms and neural networks to process information by comparing it to a teaching set of data. By mimicking human thought processes, computers help people […]

What Is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing provides computation, software, data access, and storage systems without requiring knowledge of the physical location and configuration needed. Cloud computing may be executed on or off premises, and has adopted virtualization, service-oriented architecture, and utility computing. Databases in the cloud may be implemented by: Virtual Machine Image: Users purchase virtual machine instances with […]

What Is a Wide Column Database?

Wide column databases, or column family databases, refers to a category of NoSQL databases that works well for storing enormous amounts of data that can be collected. Its architecture uses persistent, sparse matrix, multi-dimensional mapping (row-value, column-value, and timestamp) in a tabular format meant for massive scalability (over and above the petabyte scale). Column family […]

What Is a Graph Database?

Graph databases refers to a category of  NoSQL databases that represent data whose relations are well represented as a set of nodes. These nodes have an undetermined number of connections and are evaluated through computer algorithms. Good graph database use cases include: Social relationships (nodes are people) Public transport links (nodes can be bus or […]

What Is a Document Database?

Document databases refers to a category of  NoSQL that represents data in a tree structure, where paths or branches connect data values or leaves. Frequently, document stores use XML and JSON formats stores. There are few practical limits to the number of paths, fields, values, or types of data that can be added to specific […]
