Is it just me or is NoSQL Overapplied? It seems like in an effort to be as trendy as possible people shoehorn obviously relational problems into non relational schema. If you have to start throwing foreign keys on your objects I think you need to rethink your solution. Sarah Mei makes a good point about this in her article:

It was definitely over applied initially. Though, I think it's gotten better over the years. Part of it, too, is that a lot of the relational databases started incorporating NoSQL-like features (i.e. PostgreSQL and their JSON capabilities).

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.
