In the feature story of October's Business Information, SearchDataManagement News and Site Editor Jack Vaughan looks at why traditional organizations are hesitant to move big data applications to the cloud. Even with high-profile vendors -- among them Amazon Web Services, Google and Microsoft -- and startups offering cloud-based NoSQL database platforms, big data management in the cloud has yet to hit the mainstream.

Finally, Vaughan quizzes Forrester analyst Mike Gualtieri on whether data lakes can compete with data warehouses to quench organizations' thirst for storing and analyzing business data.
