Big Data in the Internet of Things is snowballing. The amount of data is ever-increasing and becoming more and more varied. The impact on traditional relational database management systems (RDBMS) will be significant. Databases need to adopt and meet these new IoT requirements with greater data processing agility, multiple analytical tools including real-time analytics, and aligned and consistent views of the data. This Research Note examines what database capabilities will be required to address data managed in the Internet of Things, and how NoSQL systems like MongoDB, Cassandra and HBase are meeting this challenge.
