Over the past twelve years, we've seen a "third revolution" in database systems. The one size fits all RDBMS has given way to an explosion of diverse data management technologies. In this talk, we'll discover these new database technologies, consider their utility in leveraging existing data assets and speculate on how these will evolve to meet tomorrow's data needs.

The relational model dominated for a generation of computer professionals and represents a triumph of software architecture. However, today we are clearly in the midst of the third database revolution as the demands of an increasingly information-centric economy and global always-on applications have led to the emergence of new database architectures. In this third wave, multiple and diverse database technologies co-operate to accomplish the disparate business challenges provided by the migration to cloud computing, web-scale applications with social and mobile contexts, the promise of big data analytics, and the emerging challenge presented by the Internet of Things.

In this presentation, we’ll look at the key technologies and imperatives driving the third wave of databases and dive into specific facets of the revolution such as Big Data technologies, NoSQL, NewSQL, and graph technologies. In particular, we'll review important new database systems such as MongoDB, Cassandra, CockroachDB, SnowflakeDB and Neo4J. Finally, we’ll contemplate what might be in store for database management systems of the future.
