Transforming Big Data into Business Value
In the data-driven world, organizations must adopt modern technologies that enable them to connect, analyze and take automated action on their data – or get outpaced and replaced by those that do. A new whitepaper by Actian presents the challenges and opportunities faced by business leaders in the Age of Data and shares techniques for turning big data into business value.
Enabling Competitive Advantage with Modern Data Platforms
While understanding the term “big data” continues to vary, its underlying business value proposition is clear: the ability to affordably store all the data you can imagine,and work with it in ways never before possible. Big data has opened the door to the next true revolution – the Age of Data. Many talk about big data as being today’s booming oil wells, with so much crude oil available that anyone who can refine it into valuable, consumable, data-driven products will have a successful business model. The key to successfully creating new, competitive business value in the Age of Data requires equal parts big data, ultra-performance, and relevant context.

Versant: Creating High Performance Big Data Applications with the Java Persistence API
Data management has reached another inflection point. A new breed of applications is pushing traditional, mostly relational database management solutions (RDBMS) beyond their limits, driven by an ever-growing mountain of data, ubiquitous access to information, the consumerism of IT, cloud computing, mobile computing, and, last but not least, the hunger for smarter applications.
Versant: NoSQL - Beyond the Key-Value Store for the Enterprise
This whitepaper explores the core value delivered by early NoSQL technology, and discusses implementation issues within the context of soft-schema development. The core take away from the paper being that the ORM concepts learned over the last decade were not wasted engineering effort and apply equally well to the NoSQL era, illustrating that Standards based API’s with a NoSQL database and the (O) is enough, (CM/DM/RM) are not necessary.
Versant: Versant Object Database Paired with the Kove XPD2 Storage System
The Versant Object Database is well known for its outstanding performance, particularly for data ingestion of complex models including highly connected graph data. In this Versant white paper, we compare the performance of the Versant Object Database using a traditional RAID storage system versus VOD utilizing the Kove Data Storage system for creating trees of inter-connected objects.
Versant: VOD 8.0 and Solid State Device Performance Analysis
This white paper analyzes under which circumstances VOD can benefit from the high I/O performance of Solid State Devices. In this white paper we are especially interested in data that show which parts/files of a database - system volume, data volumes, logical log and/or physical log - should be stored on an SSD and which ones need not be in order to maximize performance gains.
