Welcome to the information age, a time when businesses have access to a wealth of different data, ranging from first-party collected facts to Web analytics metrics. While organizations have always used data in one form or another to drive decision-making processes, companies nowadays are easily gathering information from CRM and ERP systems as well as discovering a variety of different data sources, including social media, cybersecurity reporting tools and industry studies.

Everywhere executives turn news sources and vendors are advertising big data and similar technologies. With the amount of press they receive, one is likely to assume that companies are retiring their relational databases in favor of their nonrelational counterparts.
