Expecting Guidance to be different

May 20, 2013 at 2:45 PM
I've been reviewing the Data Access Guidance pdf, and I think that others who pick this up wil expect some more guidance on practical recommendations on WHEN to use document or column family instead of relational. The document provides a very good overview/description of the types of databases, and the code provides "how to" for building your framework to access the databases, but the document seems very light on practical recommendations of when I really should be using NoSQL instead of relational.

I think the "guidance" in the title will lead people to expect this (I know I did).
