The myth of NoSQL (vs. RDBMS) agility: adding attributes

By Franck Pachot

.
There are good reasons for NoSQL and semi-structured databases. And there are also many mistakes and myths. If people move from RDBMS to NoSQL because of wrong reasons, they will have a bad experience and this finally deserves NoSQL reputation. Those myths were settled by some database newbies who didn’t learn SQL and relational databases. And, rather than learning the basics of data modeling, and capabilities of SQL for data sets processing, they thought they had invented the next generation of persistence… when they actually came back to what was there before the invention of RDBMS: a hierarchical semi-structured data model. And now encountering the same problem that the relational database solved 40 years ago. This blog post is about one of those myths.

How is data modeled in NoSQL?

The important thing to understand is the data does not change just because it is managed differently. If the data does not change, then the entities and the relationships contained in the data cannot change either. The entities and the relationships between them have not changed since the dawn of time. They were the same in the days of network database management systems which came before relational database management systems, they stayed the same when object-oriented database management systems came along, and they are the same now that we have NoSQL databases.(read more)

Why should Oracle Database professionals care about NoSQL and where to start?
