NoSQL database products evolve rapidly. This book series aims to keep those in the IT industry abreast of recent trends in the industry, and changes within specific NoSQL products and their backing commercial companies.

The topics mentioned are big changes that may affect your technology choices. Ever decided not to bother with a technology because it didn’t do something fundamental? Well, if a technology shift occurs, it’ll be covered in Chapter 1.

If you currently know nothing about NoSQL you can still follow this book! Chapter 2 lists common industry problems and solutions, and suggests specific products for each use case. You may not know you need NoSQL, but I bet you know what data management problems you’re having.

Read through chapter 2 to find pointers to potential NoSQL options that may help you. Then read the detail of those products in chapter 4. If your options are in a particular type of NoSQL, such as Wide Column stores, then also read the relevant section from chapter 3 to make sure you don’t miss any niche players that may be useful to your specific problem.

Links to news stories, industry reports, press releases and other sources of further information are spread throughout this book.
