Firstly, I wrote a 7 part series of articles reviewing the DBMS technology circa 2015. This series spans relational, NoSQL and in-memory database technology and here are the links to each of the seven articles:
- Evaluating the Different Types of DBMS Products
- Key criteria for deciding if a relational DBMS meets your IT needs
- Key criteria for deciding if a NoSQL DBMS meets your IT needs
- How to determine if an in-
memory DBMS is right for your company
- Which relational DBMS is best for your company?
- How to determine which NoSQL DBMS best fits your needs.
- Which in-
memory DBMS best fits your company’s needs?
Now you may be asking, why would I provide links to these articles on a DB2 blog? Good question. The answer is that it behooves you to keep up to date on the latest breakthroughs and offerings in the world of data management. Sure, we all can agree that DB2 is great and should be used by everybody! But let's face it, our organizations are going to have data-related projects where DB2 is not the primary DBMS... so read through those articles and get up to speed on the new NoSQL and in-memory database offerings out there.
I have also been writing a series of DBMS product overview documents that briefly review and highlight the features and capabilities of many popular DBMSes. I won't share all of them with you here today (if you are interested, they will all be linked to, over time, on my web site at http://mullinsconsulting.com/articles.html. I will, though, share the link for the TechTarget product overview I wrote of DB2: IBM DB2 relational DBMS overview.
That's all for today... thanks for reading!
