International Cartographic Association and OSGeo renew their Memorandum of Understanding

Story Source and Credit:  Georg Gartner, President of the International Cartographic Association

Based on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between ICA and OSGeo signed in 2011, a real success story developed. The MoU acted as an umbrella for several activities coordinated by the ICA Commission on Open Source Geospatial Technologies under the chairmanship of Suchith Anand.

The so-called ICA-OSGeo Labs are focussing on the use of open source software for geoinformation management and cartography. In the meantime, more than 100 institutions have joined the initiative and it is still growing. Based on the unexpected high interest, Suchith Anand took this idea a step further and founded Geo4All, which goes beyond open software and also includes the aim of having open access to education material, data and applications.

During the most successful FOSS4G Europe conference at Como, Italy, president of OSGeo Jeff McKenna and ICA President Georg Gartner renewed and edited the MoU, which can be found on wiki.osgeo.org.

Postgres – Best Database Overall – Database Trends and Applications Readers Choice Awards 2015

Story Source and Credit:  Database Trends and Applications

An array of database technologies, including NoSQL, NewSQL, in-memory databases, and cloud database—or database as a service approaches, are increasingly being adopted to address the new requirements created by the explosive growth in data volume and variety. Social media, the Internet of Things, the need for mobile access, and real-time insights are just some of the new factors wielding pressure on organizations.

The study released in March 2015, reveals that structured data still makes up 75% of data under management for more than two-thirds of organizations, with nearly one-third of organizations not yet actively managing unstructured data at all.

Still, these are early days for many of these new database technologies, and existing relational database technologies are still the heavyweights when it comes to managing enterprise data.

A powerful feature in Postgres called Foreign Data Wrapperslets end users integrate data from MongoDB, Hadoop and other solutions with their Postgres database and leverage it as single, seamless database using SQL.

Use of these features has skyrocketed since EDB released to the open source community new FDWs for MongoDB, Hadoop and MySQL that support both read and write capabilities. Now greatly enhanced, FDWs enable integrating data across disparate deployments to support new workloads, expanded development goals and harvesting greater value from data.
