Level:  Technical - Introductory

We are in the post-PC era – more mobile computing devices (smartphones, tablets) ship per quarter than PC’s, and have since the fourth quarter of 2010*. Mobile devices are where we gather and consume information with increasing frequency, but the cloud is where that information will be aggregated, analyzed and enriched. NoSQL databases are ideal for the cloud-side data management needs of mobile applications, powering some of the most successful and widely used mobile apps, including the recent hit Draw Something by OMGPOP which reached 50 million downloads in 50 days.

In this presentation you will learn about:

  • The rapidly evolving mobile landscape
  • Why a NoSQL database may be the best fit for your application
  • Mobile use cases from real-world deployments
