New Software Development for SQL – Splice SQL Engine

by Phuong H
In the article “Splice Machine Secures Funding to Develop the Splice SQL Engine,” the author talks about the new software development for SQL called the Spice SQL engine. A lot of businesses today turn to Big Data or NoSQL nowadays because of the overwhelmed data they have to handle with. However, the authors argue that it is a mistake to eliminate SQL. Turning to Big Data or NoSQL is also at a high cost because we have to train people how to use it and rewrite existing application/reports. With the new Splice SQL engine, it enable users to build a hyper-personalized web, mobile and social application with the knowledge they already have with SQL and SQL tools available on the marketplace.

I choose this article because we learning about SQL now and there are people said that we are moving forward to NoSQL for most businesses, I think it is till valuable for us to learn SQL because while people moving to NoSQL, they still need people with SQL to deal with their old RDBMS.

    When I was looking into NoSQL I found that it stood for “Not Only SQL.” That is that NoSQL systems were being implemented as a service alongside existing databases that use SQL. So I guess that the goal of this engine that they are trying to build is to create a system where SQL can be used for the type / amount of data that is being generated in today’s infrastructure. If that is the goal I think it would be really interesting to be able to easily access unstructured data such as pictures from Facebook quickly and easily with SQL. I hope that it works well for them and they build it in such a way so that it is easy to implement and use with existing technologies as well as when a company has to implement or move their existing data over to new database software / hardware.
