This quotable statement from Jim Hendler should send due notice to everyone in data management that the world of databases is changing rapidly. Many new database technologies - most of which are NOT relational - are emerging to take on the new challenges of big data, cloud computing, large-scale analytical modeling and other contemporary challenges where relational technologies aren't adequate. The broad term used to describe this new set of technologies is NoSQL, for Not Only SQL.

Dan McCreary is an enterprise data architect and author specializing in emerging database technologies. He has worked at Bell Labs, with Steve Jobs at NeXT Computer as well as founding his own consulting firm of over 75 people. His background includes topics such as high performance computing, programming languages, databases and XML standards. He has published articles on the semantic web, metadata registries, US Federal XML standards, XForms, XQuery and XRX. He is co-chair of the NoSQL Now! Conference and a co-author of the book "Making Sense of NoSQL" by Manning Publications.
