About the Webinar

After three decades of relational data modeling, everyone’s pretty comfortable with schemas, tables, and entity-relationships. As more and more Global 2000 companies choose NoSQL databases to power their Digital Economy applications, they need to think about how to best model their data. How do they move from a constrained, table-driven model to an agile, flexible data model based on JSON documents?

This webinar is intended for architects and application developers who want to learn about new JSON document data modeling approaches, techniques, and best practices. This webinar will show you how to get started building a JSON document data model, how to migrate a table-based data model to JSON documents, and how to optimize your design to enable fast query performance.

This webinar will provide practical, experience-based advice and best practices for modeling JSON documents, including:

  • When to embed or not embed objects in your JSON document
  • Data modeling using a practical data access pattern approach
  • Indexing your JSON documents
  • Querying your data using N1QL (SQL for JSON)
