What are the use cases to use SQL db along with Multichain?

I am a newbie in Multichain. As I understand, Multichain itself is a kind of distributed ledger/database and can provide security with data encryption.So, what are the typical use cases where integration(pull/push) with SQL database may be needed? Are there any specific benefits to use SQL db along with Multichain?

The main reason to use an SQL database alongside is if you want to run complex analytics on the transactions or other data in the chain. You would have a process which mirrors the blockchain contents into your SQL database. Then you can index and query that data to your heart's content.
