11 Pages that Changed the World (Mark Knutson, Hennepin Faculty Associates) – In 1970, the widely implemented database products were based either on a network or an inverted tree structure. E. F. Codd, an IBM research mathematician, presented a paper to the Association of Computing Machinery proposing a database management system based on mathematical objects called relations.
I will briefly review the topical coverage of the paper, including the formal definition of a relation. I will also place the paper in historical context and review how IBM’s response to it shaped the DBMS product landscape that we see today.
NoSQL (Dan McCreary, Consultant) – This presentation will discuss the “NoSQL movement”, a new set of data solutions that leverage non-relational data stores. These data stores are frequently designed to leverage thousands of commodity processors, are “schema free”, use simple key-value stores or document stores and are often associated with web-scale “BigData” challenges. This presentation will cover the key business factors and technology issues driving this movement.
