Schemaless & NoSQL

Verb's platform treats all data uniformly whether the data source is a traditional RDBMS or a document/schemaless database. In the case of an RDBMS system, the relationships are explained through the database schema via primary and foreign, constraints, and indices.
In the case of schemaless, document-centric, or NoSQL databases, the concept of a schema is implied by the contents of the documents in the database. In order to allow you to build robust models (even between multiple data sources), Verb transposes your schemaless data source into oarent and child tables during the ingestion process. For example if your database stores customer documents that have an array of customer orders, Verb will create 2 schema objects with an implied relationship between them. In doing so, you can use the Verb model editor and dashboard creator to build queries and visualizations that join parent documents to descendant documents.
