Building the next generation webanalytics solution

At this year Berlin Buzzwords our colleague Niels Basjes presented out next generation webanalytics solution. Internally this solution is called measuring 2.0.

To help the customers find what they want in our web shop we want to serve personalized content. To do this we need to understand what products/promotions we showed them and which of those made them happy. However in the fine grained personalization that has been introduced over the last few years we see that just measuring ‘what page’ we showed – like all the standard web analytics systems do – is no longer enough. So we need something different. In order to get a solution that will support our business for the coming years we raised the bar to the top: Measure everything and analyse in near-realtime.

Oracle releases NoSQL Database, Enterprise Edition 1.1.100

While the NoSQL Database Community Edition still waits for final license approval, Oracle has released it’s NoSQL Database, Enterprise Edition 1.1.100. The download is available on OTN.

The Oracle NoSQL Database is a distributed key-value database. It is designed to provide highly reliable, scalable and available data storage across a configurable set of systems that function as storage nodes.

The documentation page is still rather empty. However Technical Overview and a Data Sheet are already available.

Oracle NoSQL is a key offering in Oracle’s portfolio of Big Data products. The product is based on the Java version of Berkeley DB, an open source database used in embedded systems.
