Hybrid data modeling – using both structured and semi-structured data – can meet the flexibility requirements of modern web, mobile and IoT applications, without sacrificing ACID transactions or standard SQL.

What if you want to store user profiles in a single row? Yes, a user has user_id, name and country (and more). However, users may have personal and work email addresses as well as mobile and office phone numbers. While some users have Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, others may have Facebook and Instagram accounts. What about interests?
With JSON functions, you can store users profiles in a single row.
"mobile": "(555) 555-5555"},
SELECT name, JSON_VALUE(attr, "$.email.personal") AS email, JSON_VALUE(attr, "$.social.twitter") AS twitter, JSON_VALUE(attr, "$.interests") AS favorite_interest FROM tbl_user_profiles WHERE user_id = "sjohnson";
