Summary
  • Attendees at the Database &​ Client/​Server World trade show, held in Boston in the week of Jun 27, 1994, debate the soundness of the relational model. Some industry observers believe relational database management systems (RDBMS) are approaching their limits, saying the 25-year-old relational database model no longer meets the needs of today's heavy-duty data-retrieval applications. An MIS manager at a mutual fund company says relational databases are not efficient and do not store data in a way that is useful for users. An industry observer agrees, saying that users are limited by the relational requirement that database attributes be 'atomic,' or irreducible. Other users complain that the Structure Query Language is difficult to use and violates relational rules by permitting duplicate rows. Proponents argue that the relational model is useful, saying problems derive from poor implementation.
