Does the world need a standard query language for NoSQL databases? Intuitively it seems a bit antithetical to the independent spirit of the NoSQL message. But if standards remove uncertainty for customers, and provide an element of consistency across products, then query standards would likely be a boost to the growth of the market, and allow developers to focus on innovating in other areas of product differentiation.

This panel will discuss the latest trends in advanced query languages for NoSQL databases. We’ll look at how innovations in vendor-independent standardized query languages allow NoSQL developers to query multiple types of data and multiple NoSQL databases using a single query language. We’ll see how using the right NoSQL query language promotes portability across multiple NoSQL databases, avoids vendor lock-in, and keeps your developers productive at the same time.
