Big Data Skills for the SQL Professional
PLANO, Texas July 2, 2013 – McKnight Consulting Group today announced that its president, William McKnight, will be presenting “NoSQL for the SQL Professional” on August 21 at the NoSQL Now! Educational Conference in San Jose, CA.
“William McKnight gave an incredibly inspirational and popular keynote at last year’s NoSQL Now! Conference. We are big fans of William’s Industry Leadership driven by his extensive knowledge and experience. We are very fortunate and excited to have William back to lead our series of sessions designed to transition information management professionals to the new world of co-existence with NoSQL technologies.” said Shannon Kempe, Executive Editor of DATAVERSITY, organizers of the event.
McKnight Consulting Group, headquartered in Plano, TX is focused on delivering information strategies and solutions in big data, data warehousing and master data management to companies ranging from the Global 2000 to smaller organizations. McKnight Consulting Group builds information management action plans, selects technologies, architects environments according to workloads and delivers solutions spanning SQL and NoSQL technology.
“I am delighted to be returning to one of my favorite events, the NoSQL Now! Conference, to share some of my insights on the transition from a SQL-dominated world to a world replete with heterogeneous technologies that tackle emerging workloads. These workloads support both operations and analytics for a class of data that accumulates more rapidly and with more variety than legacy systems are used to. So many are struggling with data challenges that an architected information management program that includes NoSQL technologies would provide so much value to.” said William McKnight.
William’s session will explore these issues in understanding the NoSQL differences for someone with a SQL background. Register for NoSQL Now! at http://nosql2013.dataversity.net.
