Re: MongoDB is stepping up
This is a significant step forward. No matter how good a technology is, you need to put it into operation. If it cannot enter stable operation, then there is no chance for it to generate revenue for the enterprise.

MongoDB is stepping up
Impressive how Dwight Merriman and Eliot Horowitz & co. are able to drive MongoDB into more sophisticated operations.

Kdb+ is superior to MongoDB in data analytics
If you are looking for a database with far superior scalability and analytic capability, one only needs to look at what Wall Street uses for high frequency equity trading.  This market has the most severe requirements for database performance where a milisecond is worth millions.  Companies in search of performance should take their queues from them.

kx, headquatered in Palo Alto, CA supplies the kdb+ platform to the majority of global trading houses and holds a dominant position in this space.  kdb+ is clearly the world's top data management platform.  Although its 64 bit platform provides its highest performance, kx has just made its 32 bit version of the platform free for commercial purposes.

Developers looking to be at the cutting edge would be well advised to pursue this free option.

Squeakiest wheel gets the PR grease
In my interview, Stirman started by discussing all the MMS automation features, even though they won't show up until May and even then they'll be in beta. That suggests to me that system management is the squeakiest wheel where customer complains are concerned. MongoDB Management Service is also a source of revenue for MongoDB the company -- unless you use free, cloud-based MMS geared to startups and developers. When you take it into production or move a deployment online, it's time for subscription-based MMS.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
