This Week

1. Quote of the Week
I don't know that I would say that the RM is dead per se, or even holding us back. But I have to ask... why the relational model? ...A Hierarchical Model would work. In fact if we look at these NoSQL databases ... Hierarchical Models work better than relational models. The point is that some of the factors which cause one to think in terms of relationships have changed. Disk is cheap. There are definitely problems where having a strongly typed and structured model make sense. Then there are problems where not having a rigid model make sense. Structure on read seems to make sense these days. PS... Relational models don't scale. Especially on MPP.
