Contrast with, I was at a Cassandra workshop a few weeks ago, and the speaker, when asked directly, conceded that, in Cassandra, you really do need to nail your schema on the first try, because there are no great retroactive schema migration mechanisms, and any evolution is going to result in all consuming applications needing to know about all possible versions of the data model. Which ends up being a huge source of technical debt. And heaven help you if you didn't get the indexing strategy right on the first try.
I think that this might point to the classic tension between easy and simple: RDBMSes are focused (admittedly to varying degrees of success) on trying to keep things simple, but there might be some work involved. NoSQL solutions are often sold as being easy to work with, and I don't deny that at all, but my experience is that, in the long run, they can become a huge source of complexity.
This isn't a tension that's unique to software. In my contractor days, we'd also do things one way when it was just a quick-and-dirty job, and a whole different way if we were looking to build something to last. e.g, you'll never catch me using a sprayer to paint my own house, no matter how much faster it is.
