Machines take me by surprise with great frequency. Alan Turing (1912–54) L E A R N I N G O U T C O M E S 1 1.1 I N T R O D U C T I O N In this chapter we discuss in an informal manner the idea of a database as an abstract machine. An abstract machine is a model of the key features of some system without any detail of implementation. The objective of this chapter is to describe the major components of a database system without introducing any formal notation, or introducing any concepts of… Expand

RDBMS vs NoSQL: Performance and Scaling Comparison
TLDR
From the comparison of the results it was found that MongoDB can perform much better for complicated queries at the cost of data duplication which in turn results to a larger database. Expand
The EPC II theory. Review of basic concepts, obtained results and problems to discuss
TLDR
The basic concepts of the theory of Enterprise Process Control (EPC II), as well as its most important results and directions of future work, have been discussed and it has been shown how the EPC II theory may be applied to solving certain difficult problems of business process control. Expand
