Database Management Systems Development in the USSR


During the past several years there have been significant developments in the USSR in the utilization of computer-based information processing across all sectors of the Soviet economy and at all levels of its administration. These developments have been supported by the evolution of a thirdgeneration computer hardware and software base and stimulated by an awareness of the critical importance of information processing technology to the functioning of a centrally planned and monitored economy. There is, therefore, a strong impetus to the development of database management system (DBMS) technology to support a broad spectrum of information processing applications. This paper surveys the context within which DBMS developments in the USSR are occurring, examines the features of Soviet DBMS systems reported in the current literature, and reviews current research related to data management software technology.
