re: MetLife Uses NoSQL For Customer Service Breakthrough
This is a significant advance on an age-old problem. I just so happened to interview a CIO using Oracle Endeca to integrate 20 disparate sources, but it took eight months to roll out the application. I have to do more research before I can say for sure it's an apples-to-apples comparison. Stay tuned for that one, but if anyone knows a thing or two and can compare consolidating access to structured, semi-structured and unstructured info using Endeca-like search technology vs. a NoSQL database, by all means share your insights.

we ran a recent article about the city of Chicago using MongoDB to pull data from dozens of legacy enterprise IT systems so it could have that data in one place for analysis, including layering a mapping program over it for analysis. instead of one view of the customer, that could do things like one view of a building, telling an employee everything about it from various city departments.

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.
