The volume, velocity and veracity of today's data deluge has put immense pressure on underlying data platforms and organizations' abilities to manage them effectively. And the pandemic has only exacerbated the problem. According to a 2021 survey, nearly half of digital architects are under high or extremely high pressure to deliver digital projects, but 61% blame legacy technology for making it difficult to complete modernization efforts. That said, databases of all types—SQL, NoSQL, or NewSQL—be they on-prem, cloud, hybrid, or edge, are struggling to navigate this new reality.

The value of normalization is in understanding the data well enough to create the normalized design. Pulling out the business rules, business terms, and relationships from the mass of jumbled together raw content is critical. The business rules that result from performing the normalization exercise establish the requirements that need to be satisfied by solutions, whether they are either built or purchased. When an organization creates and maintains a normalized design for the data within the important areas of their business, they reduce work on all future systems.
