The promise of big data is morphing into the fast data opportunity. Unless you have the capability to respond to the Internet of Things and the trillions of data points generated by smartphones, sensors, and social media, the business opportunities of fast data can pass you by.
There is a lot of debate in the big data space about tools and technology, and which ones are best. Is SQL better than NoSQL? Hadoop or Spark? What about R or Python?

Ease of use just got easier for businesses looking to move to the Couchbase NoSQL platform, as Silicon Valley-based KuroBase launches its new Couchbase as a service offering.
