Eight years ago I introduced a Document NoSQL Database into my enterprise, which is the size of a fortune 500 company. Today we use it to run 189 applications to process billions of transactions. This interactive presentation will share the war stories and success stories of introducing a controversial database into a conservative IT shop.

Michael Bowers is principal enterprise data architect at the LDS Church. He has spent over 20 years as an enterprise architect, software developer, and database architect. In 2008, Michael brought the MarkLogic NoSQL database to LDS. Today it delivers 1.8 TB of data to 95 million annual visitors with billions of page hits across 182 websites, transactional applications, and web services.
