Enterprise customers are waking up to the NOSQL message in a big way, comfortable now that the technology is robust enough for many enterprise applications, and that the leading companies developing NoSQL products will be around to provide support. Meanwhile, NoSQL vendors are doing their part by addressing enterprise requirements for security, ACID transactions, and even SQL compatibility. The latest moves by major database incumbents (such as Oracle) give further reassurance to enterprise customers that NoSQL technologies should become part of the data management and software portfolio.

This panel will feature leading database providers addressing the enterprise marketspace, including 10gen, Oracle and MarkLogic.
