Problem: It's crucial for IT workers to nail the development of a database structure. Systems need to be modeled for read optimized storage, according to Dr. Satya Ramaswamy of TCS Ltd. This is an issue, he said, because most platforms were created to handle batch writes and then multiple reads.

Solution: "Architects should focus on modeling the data at the right grain with the right normalization," said Ramaswamy. "In case of columnar data stores, the storage and access patterns are important and the read key design should be given due focus."
