VIDEO: How to Design and Maintain Polyglot and Multi-Model Databases

Video produced by Steve Nathans-Kelly

At Data Summit 2018, Jeff Fried, director of product management at InterSystems, discussed how to create and maintain both polyglot and multi-model databases in his session, "Polyglot Persistence Versus Multi-Model Databases.”

“In polyglot persistence the idea is that you use specialized data stores for different purposes and they you stitch them together when you’re building an application,” Fried said. “In the multi-model database camp you have a universal store and use it directly when you build applications.”

Because the world is speeding up, there isn’t one way people want to consume or use data, it’s important to address a variety of needs with new and emerging options, Fried said.
