Renormalize: When SQL Meets Documents

A Database Month event: (

People are saying NoSQL is the only option to get decent document access, but in reality SQL can do documents too! We have developed open source technology that makes SQL so powerful that it merges with documents and easily turns any complex query execution from arduous to simple. In this presentation Ori will use multiple real client use-cases to explain the basis for the approach as well as implementation considerations.

Ori Herrnstadt is the founder and CTO of Akiban ( He has been involved in developing large scale operational database systems since his days in the Israeli Military. After experiencing similar problems of large-scale operational systems in healthcare, ERP, CRM and modern web applications, he began developing the Orthogonal Architecture. In 2009, he founded Akiban Technologies to accelerate the development of this technology.
