Am 28. Januar war Europäischer Datenschutztag und ab sofort gilt dann verschärftes EU-Recht – so kommt es einem zumindest vor bei Gesprächen mit Datenschutz-Experten, bei ihrem Streben, die neue EU-Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO) zu bewältigen. Was ist schutzwürdig? Alles bekannt Personenbezogene, sowieso. Mehr aber noch das Unbekannte.
I've been working on a pilot project recently with a client to test out some new NoSQL database frameworks (graph databases in particular). Our goal is to see how a different storage model, representation and presentation can enhance the usability and ease of integration for master data indexes and entity
