Database Management

Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) continue to do the heavy lifting in data management, while newer database management systems are taking on prominent roles as well. NoSQL database systems such as Key-Value, Column Family, Graph, and Document databases, are gaining acceptance due to their ability to handle unstructured and semi-structured data. MultiValue, sometimes called the fifth NoSQL database, is also a well-established database management technology which continues to evolve to address new enterprise requirements.

In the last 5 years, we've seen a blurring of the distinction between many of the upstart databases and the traditional SQL databases. NoSQL databases such as MongoDB have added features typically associated with relational databases—trans­actions, SQL connectors, and the like—while the SQL databases have introduced support for JSON document models. We can see that databases such as PostgreSQL and MongoDB are increasingly converg­ing on a common set of features. However, one category of NoSQL databases seems to be bucking the conver­gence trend: graph databases.

Over the last few years it has been fascinating to see how organizations evolve their data management and application development environments.  Traditionally, companies depended on monolithic architectures that initially served them well, however today's on-demand business environment calls for a model that can support a more flexible, microservices-driven approach, and facilitate the pace of innovation.  Why is this trend towards microservices and a DevOps approach becoming so pervasive?  The answer relates to a higher-level trend: the push towards on-demand IT, as the focus has shifted to prioritize the developer experience, and the specific technologies they are using.
