SQL cannot solve all of the problems emerging in this age of big data. NoSQL comes to the rescue, but it doesn't use SQL as its query language or give full ACID guarantees. In the future, you will have to integrate these NoSQL databases just like you integrate SQL databases today.
Different open source frameworks and tools are already prepared for this challenging task. This session demonstrates elegant alternatives for NoSQL integration without writing a lot of boilerplate glue code and complex mapping. Several examples are shown for several types of NoSQL databases by integrating MongoDB (Document Store), HBase (Column-oriented), Neo4j (Graph), Amazon Web Services S3 (Key Value Store), and others.
