Making the business case for NoSQL technologies to support data-driven transformation is easy. The challenge is identifying the architectural and technological implications facing those tasked with building and maintaining these new mission-critical data sources and the applications they feed.

As the leader in data modeling, we’ve identified a critical success factor in adopting a NoSQL platform, such as MongoDB. But it requires a significant paradigm shift in designing NoSQL data structures and deploying the databases that manage them.

Traditional database design has focused on normalization and storage optimization, driven by available technologies and the belief that normalization and its resulting referential integrity is paramount. But when we look at new data use cases, development technologies and techniques, and the DBMS capabilities and behaviors they demand, the database design deck has been shuffled.

The need for real-time access and analysis drive demand for real-time performance. Therefore, query performance is now king from a design perspective. And we can manage the risk of denormalization, even embrace it in pursuit of simplified querying and high-performance response. This session discusses the shift to query-optimized modeling to take the pain out of modern database design.
