Presentation: "The Design of a SQL Interface for a NoSQL Database"

Time: Wednesday 13:30 - 14:20

Location: Seacliff CD


We briefly review the architecture of a NoSQL Document Database that stores XML, JSON, text, and binary data.  Like most NoSQL databases, it has a variety of native interfaces, none of which connect to standard BI tools.  We will then discuss the design of a SQL interface and ODBC driver for connecting the database to Cognos and Tableau.
