The new “Hadoop in Practice. Second Edition” book by Alex Holmes provides a deep insight into Hadoop ecosystem covering a wide spectrum of topics such as data organization, layouts and serialization, data processing, including MapReduce and big data patterns, special structures along with their usage to simplify big data processing, and SQL on Hadoop data.
This series takes the reader on a journey from determining the business case for APIs to a design methodology, meeting implementation challenges, and taking the long view on maintaining public APIs on the Web over time. Along the way there are interviews with influential individuals and even a suggested reading list on APIs and related topics.

Many Web API designers claim their are RESTful, but their APIs have little in common with REST. What can be done to make a web service API truly RESTful? 8
Sytze Harkema explains how to save and retrieve relational SQL data into a NoSQL key-value store as implemented by FoundationDB, an open source, scalable, fault tolerant and ACID database.
In this article, authors discuss Model Driven Engineering (MDE) practice based on a survey and found that developers use MDE to develop key parts of a system instead of generating whole systems.
Ganesh Prasad proposes minimizing service dependencies in a SOA implementation rather than avoiding point-to-point connections in order to obtain a more flexible system that can evolve over time.
Enterprise Application Development can be smartly standardized in order to take advantage of existing code and component based architecture. Mark demonstrates an approach to clarify this EA pattern. 6
The CMMI Institute has launched the Data Management Maturity (DMM)SM model. It can be used to improve data management, helping organizations to bridge the gap between business and IT.
