Alex Woodie (Datanami) reporting about BitYota a SQL-based data warehouse on top of JSON:
BitYota says it designed its own hosted data warehouse from scratch, and
that it’s differentiated by having a JSON access layer atop the data store.
“We have some uniqueness where we operate SQL directly on JSON,” says
BitYota CEO Dev Patel. “We don’t need to translate that data into a
structured format like a CSV. We believe that if you transform the data, you
will lose some of the data quality. And once that’s transformed, you won’t
get it back.”
✚ BitYota’s tagline is Analytics for mongoDB, so I assume it’s safe to say the backend is mongoDB and they are building a SQL layer on top of it. What flavor and what’s the behavior for SQL’s quirks would be a very interesting story.
