NoSQL databases differ from RDBMSs mainly in that they use non-relational data models, lack explicit schemas and scale horizontally. Some of these features cause problems for applications like Spotfire when extracting and importing data.

This thesis investigates how these problems can be solved, thus enabling support for NoSQL databases in Spotfire. The approach and conclusions are valid for any application that interacts with databases in a similar way as Spotfire.
