Variety is the spice of life, but it’s also the reality of big data. For this reason, JSON has now becoming lingua franca of data in the internet – for APIs, data exchange, data storage and data processing. In the business intelligence world, SQL is the language to analyze the data in other forms. Hence, the myriad of “SQL-on-Hadoop” projects. However, traditional SQL isn’t JSON/Parquet/etc. friendly.
