My December blog post @All Analytics.
Don't let the label fool you. It's the relational data model (RDM), not SQL that NoSQL proponents really are rejecting. The main argument, advanced in a recent LinkedIn exchange, is that lots of information "cannot be represented in rows and columns". The implication is that the RDM is not general enough -- there are certain types of information that it cannot represent. The response from my colleague in RDM David McGoveran, is important enough to restate here.
(Comment there, not here, please. Thanks.)
Happy new year!
