Many people love NoSQL databases because they can throw their data into them without a care (almost) and let the NoSQL database sort out the storage. Writes and reads of “lumps” of data can be blazingly fast, making them favorite tools for many developers seeking performance for their applications.
But analytics? If you’ve thrown in your data just anyhow, how reasonable is it to expect any sort of orderly analysis afterward? Trends and patterns may be easier to obtain from an SQL database with its neatly structured tabular data.
