EDBT 2017 Tutorial on Multi-model Data Management

multi-model database


As more businesses realized that data, in all forms and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions, we see the continued growth of systems that support massive volume of non-relational or unstructured forms of data. Nothing shows the picture more starkly than the Gartner Magic quadrant for operational database management systems, which assumes that, by 2017, all leading operational DBMSs will offer multiple data models, relational and NoSQL, in a single DBMS platform. Having a single data platform for managing both well-structured data and NoSQL data is beneficial to users; this approach reduces significantly integration, migration, development, maintenance, and operational issues. Therefore, a challenging research work is how to develop efficient consolidated single data management platform covering both relational data and NoSQL to reduce integration issues, simplify operations, and eliminate migration issues.

In this tutorial, we review the previous work on multi-model data management and provide the insights on the research challenges and directions for future work.
