  • Conclusion More easily build applications fewer lines of code data processing done away from app consistent and familiar syntax for all data access iterative environment for developing the query
  • Conclusion build applications that run faster service in the cloud does the work conversion, filtering, parallel requests... with smaller network footprint fewer (client) calls smaller data amounts closer to the data, fatter pipes
