At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

The demand for new data about customers, customer behaviour, product usage, asset performance, and operational processes is growing rapidly. Almost every industry wants new data. Some examples of this are:
• Financial services organisations want more data to improve risk decisions, for ‘Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance and for a 360 degree view of financial crime.
• Utilities companies want smart meter data to give them deeper understanding of customer and grid usage and to allow them to exploit pricing elasticity. They also want sensor data to monitor grid health, to optimise field service and manage assets.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has rapidly transformed the digital landscape and the world we live in. Intelligent devices and sensors connect smart cars, robotic manufacturing equipment, smart medical equipment, smart cities, industrial control systems, and much more in a way that improves lives and saves businesses billions of dollars. But along with its benefits, rapid IoT growth introduces a new dimension of security vulnerabilities that dramatically escalates the nature and seriousness of cybercrime risks.
In addition to traditional confidentiality cyber risks, IoT threats include attacks that can:
• Render smart appliances useless
• Shut down city power grids
• Threaten lives through hacked pacemakers and other medical devices.
Such security flaws not only endanger lives, frustrate customers, and disrupt business operations, but they create significant cost and public relations damage for IoT developers and manufacturers.
