Subject Re: [RESULT] [VOTE] Graduation of Apache MetaModel from the Incubator
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 20:29:40 GMT
See following the quote from our Big Data Architect at Stratio about the
use of MM:

*"Apache Metamodel is a key technology in Stratio Datavis, allowing us to
manage metadata and create SQL-based connectors for a bunch of data stores.
Thanks to Apache Metamodel, Datavis users can create beautiful dashboards
using their SQL skills, instead of **knowing several query languages.
That's why we are proud to be contributors of Metamodel and we will
continue to collaborate with this great project " said David Morales, Big
Data Architect at Stratio. **"**Stratio Datavis is a data visualization
tool that was born to fulfill two main visualization needs: one is to
expose the real value of data regardless of where it is stored, even
regardless of its query language, but also to let the users freely discover
and communicate their ends. **With Stratio Datavis, you can put together
information coming from MongoDB and MySQL, for example, or maybe compare
data in two different series each coming from Cassandra and ElasticSearch".*

Kind regards,

Alberto

> Description of the project:
>
> Apache MetaModel is a data access framework, providing a common interface
> for discovery, exploration and querying of different types of data sources.
> Unlike traditional mapping frameworks, MetaModel emphasizes metadata of the
> data source itself and the ability to add more data sources at runtime.
> With this approach we provide a schema model and a SQL-like query API that
> is applicable to databases, CSV files, Excel spreadsheets, NoSQL databases,
> Cloud-based business applications and even regular Java objects. This level
> of abstraction makes MetaModel great for dynamic data processing
> applications, less so for applications modelled strictly around a
> particular domain. This is why we call it “MetaModel” – it’s a model for
> interacting with data based on metadata – and it enabled developers to go
> above the physical data layer and apply their application to just about any
> data.
>
> --------------

> Quote from the PMC chair (me):
>
> It’s a great privilege for us to have MetaModel graduated to a Top Level
> Project at Apache. It makes us proud and excited about welcoming more
> people into our community of coders and users.
>
> In our incubation period from July 2013 we’ve learned a lot about the
> Apache Way. It’s been a joy to follow the growth in the community and in
> functionality. The last year we’ve introduced connectivity for Apache
> HBase, JSON files, ElasticSearch, Apache Cassandra and a whole lot more.
