In the BOSSIEs (Again!) – Listed In InfoWorld’s ‘Best of’ Open Source Big Data Tools for 2016
We’re mighty stoked to make it into InfoWorld’s list of best open source big data tools for the second time!
Here are some excerpts:
If you have a MongoDB data store and need to run basic analytics, are you going to create a whole Hadoop or other infrastructure for reporting?
That’s a lot of ETL for reporting on one data store! Far easier and saner is to report straight from a replica. SlamData has a SQL-based engine that talks natively to MongoDB. Unlike MongoDB’s own solution, SlamData is not sucking all the data into PostgreSQL and calling it a BI connector.
We’re heading into new territory in just a few weeks, bringing native NoSQL analytics goodness not just to MongoDB but also to MarkLogic, Couchbase, Spark and Postgres. And more after that! Hang on, we’re just getting going.

Who Is Using SlamData?
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.
