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.

For skeptics of the "putting all your eggs in one basket" strategy, history shows that building fewer, sturdier baskets can create strategic advantage. Take a look at the construction of airplanes. Bigger planes create economies of scale that make flying safer, faster, and more efficient. Oil shipments also move more safely and cost-effectively in double-hulled, automation-packed tankers than on large fleets of small craft. Data storage is simply another successful application of this consolidation strategy.
