In this talk, Aleksa Vukotic will look at a practical example of how and why he migrated from traditional relational persistance approach to a document-centric persistence approach as part of a recent client project. Aleksa will dive into how his company assessed and adopted CouchDB in order to rapidly and successfully deliver a next generation insurance platform using Scala and Lift.
Document stores are great, graph stores are great and polygot persistence is a great buzzword; but when you mix two great things is the result guaranteed to be great?
A graph store, like Neo4J should be the perfect complement to a document store like CouchDB or MongoDB. Whereas the document store is concerned with atomic operations on atomic pieces of data a graph store is concerned with how pieces of data relate to one another.
Based on his experiences of mixing CouchDB and Neo4J at Wazoku, an idea management startup, Robert talks about the theory of mixing your stores and the practical experience.
