Working with the vast variety of data out there can be a huge challenge for organizations. We believe that a “one size does not fit all” solution is required to work with such data. The BigDAWG polystore is a federated DB system for multiple, disparate data models. It supports the notions of location transparency and semantic completeness through islands of information which support a data model, query language and candidate set of DB engines. A prototype of the BigDAWG system has shown great promise when applied to diverse medical data.
