NCRTDT 2010 - Thaigarajar School of Management


About the conference

The National conference on recent trends in database systems, rdbms and oodbms technologies is a conference on the present state of SQL and RDBMS Technologies and to ponder over the future state of SQL and RDBMS Technology. A strong opinion. from a group of researchers is emerging as “object-oriented databases are the next step in evolution of data management” and that “the relational data model is dying, because it is too limited and non-intutive for modern data needs”.
It is also felt that “the industry is moving toward a more XML or object centric approach to data management” and hence there is “need for hierarchical, tree-structured, complex data types instead of just columns and rows…”,etc. Moreover, with an RDBMS it is not possible to model the dynamic operations or rules that change the state of the data in the system because such things are beyond the scope of the database. With an OODBMS there is no disconnect between the database model and the application model because the entities are just other objects in the system.
But there are researchers who staunchly support SQL and RDBMS with arguments such as:
-SQL-based databases
are flagship software products for the three largest software vendors in the world: Microsoft, Oracle and IBM
-RDBMS systems are headed into main memory which changes the playing field altogether
-john Ousterhout and his co-authors outline a compelling argument for RAMCloud

And, that “new functionalities such as CASE statements, outer joins, and nested table expressions have increased the number of tasks one can perform using SQL alone. But these features are alone not the end of how SQL will adapt to change….”
Which is true? Is it the end of SQL and Relational Databases? Or is it just a hasty and myopic conclusion? State your opinions with supporting arguments, references, documents, data, etc.
