In late May, 2008, a group of database researchers, architects, users and pundits met at the Claremont Resort in Berkeley, California to discuss the state of the research field and its impacts on practice. This was the seventh meeting of this sort in twenty years, and was distinguished by a broad consensus that we are at a turning point in the history of the field, due both to an explosion of data and usage scenarios, and to major shifts in computing hardware and platforms. Given these forces…

The Beckman Report on Database Research

It is observed that Big Data has now become a defining challenge of the authors' time, and that the database research community is uniquely positioned to address it, with enormous opportunities to make transformative impact.

Управление данными: 25 лет прогнозов

This paper looks at the most interesting forecasts from the reports of the research meetings of the field of databases, and discusses how they proved to be valid, to what extent they were true or not.

Search-Based Applications: At the Confluence of Search and Database Technologies

A new generation of information access platforms that combine strategies and structures of two familiar -- and previously quite distinct -- technologies, search engines and databases, and in a new model for software applications, the Search-Based Application (SBA), which offers a pragmatic way to solve both well-known and emerging information management challenges as of now.

DB-IR integration using tight-coupling in the Odysseus DBMS

It is shown that Odysseus significantly outperforms two open-source DBMSs and oneopen-source search engine (with some exceptional cases) in processing DB-IR integration queries, demonstrating superiority of the tight-coupling architecture for DB- IR integration.

Towards Programmability of a NUMA-Aware Storage Engine

The overall approach consisting of a highly-scalable NUMA-aware storage engine ERIS and a novel appropriate procedural programming approach on top of ERIS is presented in this paper.

ASTERIX: towards a scalable, semistructured data platform for evolving-world models

This paper provides an overview of the ASTERIX project, starting with its main goal—the storage and analysis of data pertaining to evolving-world models, and describes the requirements and associated challenges, and how the project is addressing them.

A Review of Polyglot Persistence in the Big Data World

This paper reflects the characteristics of these databases from a conceptual point of view and describes a potential solution for a distributed system—the adoption of polyglot persistence in data-intensive systems in the big data era.

Databases in the 3 rd Millennium : Trends and Research Directions

New trends in databases, particularly in their architectures are presented and to show on cloud computing, data streams, mobile and embedded databases, and databases supporting Web.2.0 some new ideas and possibilities of solution of associated problems are pointed out.

Holistic Approaches for Robustness and Optimization of database applications

A survey of literature in database applications and some directions for future work in this area are proposed, which involves the hard task of bringing together two independent areas of research under one roof.

A Vision for Next Generation Query Processors and an Associated Research Agenda

This paper aims to present a vision for next generation query processors, to explain their functionality requirements, and to discuss the open issues, along with their challenges.



The Asilomar report on database research

The database research community should embrace a broader research agenda — broadening the definition of database management to embrace all the content of the Web and other online data stores, and rethinking the authors' fundamental assumptions in light of technology shifts.

Database research: achievements and opportunities into the 1st century

The most important directions for future DBMS research recommended by the panel are: support for multimedia objects; managing distributed and loosely coupled information, as on the world-wide web; supporting new database applications such as data mining and warehousing; workflow and other complex transaction-management problems, and enhancing the ease of use of DBMS''s for both users and system managers.

Database systems: achievements and opportunities

Achievements in database research underpin fundamental advances in communications systems, transportation and logistics, financial management, knowledge-based systems, accessibility to scientific literature, and a host of other civilian and defense applications.

Future Directions in DBMS Research - The Laguna Beach Participants

This paper summarizes the discussion which took place at a two day workshop at which 16 senior members of the data base research community discussed future research topics in the DBMS area.

The Lowell database research self-assessment

This article proposes research into several important new directions for database management systems, driven by the Internet and increasing amounts of scientific and sensor data.

Strategic directions in database systems—breaking out of the box

It is argued that instead of using an exist-ing tool in a new application, it is better to embed reusable components in orderto make the resulting system more re-sponsive, and that this is true in many new data-intensive applications.
