Don’t Choose One Database Choose Them All! — Dave da Silva, Capgemini UK

18 May, 2017

Slides for this talk: Data scientists have a plethora of SQL and NoSQL databases to choose from, each offering a wide range of features that claim to make things easier, more efficient, cheaper and more productive. Looking past the marketing speak, some of these claims are true, which makes the question of which database to select even more difficult. On the Capgemini UK Data Science team we say, “Why settle on just one?” This talk explains the rationale for using multiple databases based upon the business benefits that can be achieved for clients – despite the potential overhead of having to install, configure, populate and sync multiple data stores.
