Whitepaper: The Characteristics of NoSQL Analytics Systems

by John De Goes, CTO and Co-Founder of SlamData


Semi­structured data, called NoSQL data in this paper, is growing at an unprecedented rate.  This growth is fueled, in part, by the proliferation of web and mobile applications, APIs, event­-oriented data, sensor data, machine learning, and the Internet of Things, all of which are disproportionately powered by NoSQL technologies and data models.

This paper carves out a single concern, by focusing on the system­-level capabilities required to derive maximum analytic value from a generalized model of NoSQL data. This approach leads to eight well­-defined, objective characteristics, which collectively form a precise capabilities­-based definition of a NoSQL analytics system.

These capabilities are inextricably motivated by use cases, but other considerations are explicitly ignored. They are ignored not because they are unimportant (quite the contrary), but because they are orthogonal to the raw capabilities a system must possess to be capable of deriving analytic value from NoSQL data.
