NoSQL databases goals: Achieving Agility

Michael Rys:

The main goal of the NoSQL/big data movement is to achieve agility. Among the variety of agility dimensions — such as model agility (ease and speed of changing data models), operational agility (ease and speed of changing operational aspects), and programming agility (ease and speed of application development) — one of the most important is the ability to quickly and seamlessly scale an application to accommodate large amounts of data, users, and connections.
