Compound Analytics of Compound Data within RDBMS Framework – Infobright’s Perspective

  • Dominik Ślęzak
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6485)


The relational model has been present in research and applications for decades, inspiring a number of RDBMS products based on entirely different architectures, but sharing the same way of understanding and representing the data [4]. Given 40 years of history, it is clear that the relational paradigms should not be blindly followed in all situations [1]. On the other hand, given its popularity, the relational framework is usually the easiest one to accept by database users and the most convenient for interfacing with other tools.
