We'll discuss what data is usually stored in noSQL DBMS in comparison with the traditional relational options, how an app can have more than one DBMS and why this decision was made. Also, there will be a quick overview of advantages and disadvantages of noSQL and SQL DBMS and a few example queries to the data stored in relational and the corresponding non-relational view. I can also share a few tip and tricks on data testing if anyone's interested.
