In this session I will introduce the NoSQL philosophy before going on to compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of the relational model versus the NoSQL model, showing scenarios where you would choose one over the other and explaining why. I will complete this session with a demonstration of an application written with a NoSQL storage layer and explain the advantages that accrue from that decision. By the end of this session you will have the answer to the question posed in the title.
