“The European” is a prestigious European magazine with a global audience/distribution that, in its own words: “…brings together the voices that matter. Together, we search for answers to the questions of our time.”
How to effectively handle Big Data is one of the big questions of our time—and Scientel Information Technology, Inc. is in the forefront of organizations and companies that are generating solutions to fundamental IT problems posed by Big Data. Thus, “The European” selected Scientel as the “Voice of Big Data”.
“The European” publishes leading articles in many of the major topics such as Aviation, Energy, Finance, Executive Education, Technology, Life Sciences, Lifestyle, Business Travel, etc. In addition to the online digital version of the magazine, leading articles are also published in the online topic section as well. Accordingly, “The European” has published the Scientel article in the technology section of the online magazine. This article cites Norman T. Kutemperor, CEO of Scientel and is the subject matter of this major Big Data article. “The European” also recently published an article about Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, where Microsoft’s focus is – “Thriving on Data”. Both articles are currently available at this link.

In brief, Big Data is Big Business and will affect organizations of all types. Unconventional data handling methodologies employed by truly Polymorphic DB solutions such as Scientel’s Gensonix NoSQL DB is crucial for effective Big Data solutions. Today, the normal business enterprise generates more data in one day than they used to in a decade. Organizations find it tough to comprehend data arriving at high Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Variability—and yet maintain Veracity. The only constant is the doubling of corporate data, at least once in two years. This is the realm of Big Data. The Big Data industry is projected to reach $1T by 2020 and reports show that Big Data contributed $156B to the US economy last year. True Big Data levels are beyond the scope of today’s ordinary machines and SQL based RDBMS (Relational Database Management Systems). This leaves enterprises questioning the cost effectiveness and reliability of traditional methodologies, which are heavily dependent on SQL. Thus, the primary DB technology that has emerged to deal effectively with Big Data is “Not SQL” (or “Not-only-SQL” or “New SQL”), aka NoSQL.
Scientel Information Technology, Inc. is a leader in NoSQL DB technology and related applications. Scientel, under the leadership of CEO Norman T. Kutemperor (who has been called “the father of NoSQL”), began its journey in database management as early as the 80’s. Even though leading RDBMS versions became de facto industry standards in the 1980s, Scientel R&D personnel – with extraordinary vision – realized something like Big Data would eventually come along in the upcoming internet era. Around 1989, having identified Big Data-level vulnerabilities with SQL DBs, Scientel was able to accurately predict failure of SQL in Big Data environments. Though Big Data was still in its infancy, Scientel proceeded with unfailing commitment to Non-SQL DBMS research and released the Gensonix NoSQL DB/NSQL©® in 1993. The product included distinct procedural NoSQL capabilities for structured as well as unstructured data which were truly visionary and industry challenging in nature. In the 2000’s major SQL-related failures did occur at various internet giants that faced initial Big Data who all resorted to various types of NoSQL. Thus, the NoSQL industry was born in 2010.
Many enterprises still fail to recognize all the various ways structured and unstructured information floods into their IT systems which are not managed optimally. In today’s Big Data world, small percentages of data can spell the difference between business success and failure. Inefficiencies in handling data in the “same old SQL way” affects bottom-line by enabling competitors to pull ahead. From emails, texts, images, videos, to web logs, blogs, social media, MS documents, acquired data and PDF documents, the list is endless. Despite some organizations recognizing these sources, they are stuck in a “SQL status quo” with no idea how to proceed in deciphering and using the different Big Data forms effectively. This is due to a lack of priority, expertise, outdated infrastructures, and sluggish tools which hamper collection, organization, reduction, storage, and timely retrieval.
The enterprise version of Gensonix NoSQL DB was formed as a platform to support distinctly different data models for unstructured as well as structured Big Data. Many other NoSQL as well as SQL DBs even today are based on a single data model for all types of data or one that is mixed in a desperate fashion.
Scientel’s Gensonix NoSQL DB –a “polymorphic” DB – stores structured/unstructured data in relational, network, column and document formats, and is ideal for all environments and applications. Its massive scalability and ability for variety of data is uniquely suited to Big Data environments. Polymorphism is the ability of an entity to behave like more than one of its counterparts given a set of circumstances or criteria. In other words, in a polymorphic DB, you can use a relational approach when that is appropriate, hierarchical when that is, and so on. No one paradigm is fully implemented, but the DB uses enough of the features/capabilities needed to provide a reasonable solution to a problem. Gensonix identifies and incorporates the 7 main/key features of an ideal Big Data DB: multi-modeling, document stores, NSQL language, SQL queries, transaction tables with OLTP, MPP on HPC and Never-Slow technology – all in a single DB! This qualifies Gensonix as truly a polymorphic SUPER DB which allows it to behave like another DB.
Case studies have demonstrated how Gensonix can tackle complex problems that are difficult or nearly impossible with certain other databases and Gensonix fully processes trillion-record level tables for billion-record level entities without employing table joins. The Gensonix NoSQL DB suite is the flagship platform of the organization that provides a Highly Scalable Server Environment capable of handling Big Data requirements of any size.
Scientel’s Gensonix-based ECMS (Enterprise Content Management & Search System) incorporating Never-Slow technology is a first of its kind data management tool that can perform comprehensive, enterprise-wide, cost-effective, management of all unstructured data.
The NSQL language is native to low level languages such as C, C++, etc and supports many intrinsic functions; and performs easy recursive database/computing operations. Supporting multi-dimensional array processing, Gensonix is capable of very efficient analysis of vast amounts of structured and unstructured data at ultrahigh speeds. While NSQL is simple in nature, it handles complex Big Data tasks with ease. Gensonix also runs on LDWA (Large Data Warehouse Appliance) configurations and scales to large numbers of multiprocessor nodes. For example, Scientel’s base-level LDWA2200 product/hardware platform has been integrated with over 172 CPU cores, which easily exceeds the size of a mainframe. Scientel’s HPC (High Performance Computing) based LDWA systems support true MPP (Massively Parallel Processing). “We are talking about processing multi-petabytes of data in real-time”, says Mr. Kutemperor.
Big Data is here to stay and when coupled with Scientel’s three decades of expertise in Big Data kinds of development expertise, its offerings are a true force to reckon with in the data science and analytics market today. Judging by its veteran standards and a never fading commitment to embrace the new, Scientel plans to continue to change the game in Big Data by leveraging its unique DB capabilities and throw a few surprises to the big guns in the industry along the way.
