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.

The volume, velocity and veracity of today's data deluge has put immense pressure on underlying data platforms and organizations' abilities to manage them effectively. And the pandemic has only exacerbated the problem. According to a 2021 survey, nearly half of digital architects are under high or extremely high pressure to deliver digital projects, but 61% blame legacy technology for making it difficult to complete modernization efforts. That said, databases of all types—SQL, NoSQL, or NewSQL—be they on-prem, cloud, hybrid, or edge, are struggling to navigate this new reality.

No other subject seems to capture the attention of IT leaders right now like database migrations. If there were an IT theme for 2022, it would be: Enterprises migrate from legacy data warehouses to the cloud. And it is no longer just the "early adopters" but the entire customer base that is looking to make the move to cloud-based systems. Let's examine the three most common problems that hamper the execution of migration projects and what can be done to avert migration disasters.

Operational databases continue to expand, with database sizes growing in most organizations. In terms of performance, the more data in the operational database, the less efficient transactions running against that database tend to be. The other impact, database administration complexity, causes longer processing time and outages to perform traditional DBA tasks. But as important as operational performance and administration issues are, frequently they are ancillary to the regulatory issue of preserving authentic data over time.

The value of normalization is in understanding the data well enough to create the normalized design. Pulling out the business rules, business terms, and relationships from the mass of jumbled together raw content is critical. The business rules that result from performing the normalization exercise establish the requirements that need to be satisfied by solutions, whether they are either built or purchased. When an organization creates and maintains a normalized design for the data within the important areas of their business, they reduce work on all future systems.

Your database environment is getting more complex. If that sounds like old hat, that's because it is.For years, articles like this have warned of the dangers of increasingly convoluted database environments.

They've lamented over increasing fragmentation and workflow-stymying bottlenecks, which have, among a whole list of things, significantly hampered developer velocity. And they've explained that opting for specialized databases and tools for every need can quickly spiral into vendor lock-in, swelling support contracts, and surrendered control over your data.

While it might look easy to select a suitable database, there are a few things to evaluate when making a decision.
