How to Select The Right Database for Time-Series Data with MongoDB

Time-series databases are the fastest growing database category today. Stock tickers, water temperature sensors, blood glucose monitors, smartwatches, smart meters and connected cars are among a fast-expanding array of devices and systems that generate time-series data.
In 2020, Evans Data Corp. forecast that 64% of all developers would be building IoT apps in the next 12 months.
For all these application developers, finding the right database is essential.

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Database Vs Data Warehouse Vs Data Lake: A Simple Explanation

Databases store data in a structured form. The structure makes it possible to find and edit data. With their structured structure, databases are used for data management, data storage, data evaluation, and targeted processing of data.
In this sense, data is all information that is to be saved and later reused in various contexts. These can be date and time values, texts, addresses, numbers, but also pictures. The data should be able to be evaluated and processed later.

The amount of data the database could store is limited, so enterprise companies tend to use data warehouses, which are versions for huge streams of data.

Getting Started With Data Lakes

Frameworks for Efficient Enterprise Analytics

The opportunities big data offers also come with very real challenges that many organizations are facing today. Often, it’s finding the most cost-effective, scalable way to store and process boundless volumes of data in multiple formats that come from a growing number of sources. Then organizations need the analytical capabilities and flexibility to turn this data into insights that can meet their specific business objectives.

This Refcard dives into how a data lake helps tackle these challenges at both ends — from its enhanced architecture that’s designed for efficient data ingestion, storage, and management to its advanced analytics functionality and performance flexibility. You’ll also explore key benefits and common use cases.


As technology continues to evolve with new data sources, such as IoT sensors and social media churning out large volumes of data, there has never been a better time to discuss the possibilities and challenges of managing such data for varying analytical insights. In this Refcard, we dig deep into how data lakes solve the problem of storing and processing enormous amounts of data. While doing so, we also explore the benefits of data lakes, their use cases, and how they differ from data warehouses (DWHs).

This is a preview of the Getting Started With Data Lakes Refcard. To read the entire Refcard, please download the PDF from the link above.

Data Storage in 2021: Choosing the Right Tools for the Job

Reading about the death of the relational database seems like a regular occurrence. However, here we are in 2021, and the relational data store is going strong. If we look at the DB-Engines Ranking website, six of the top 10, including the top four spots, are all relational data stores. Evidently, structured, or relational, data storage is here to stay. Yet four of the top spots are held by non-relational engines. Could that mean that relational data storage is really dying?

The core of this question is not really which kind of data store is better between a relational, normalized structure or a non-relational, denormalized storage mechanism. No, the real core question is: What kind of data store should your organization be using in 2021?

The shortest possible way I can answer this question is as follows:

All of them.

The fact is, you’re much better off not trying to answer your data needs with one, single methodology. Let’s discuss why.
