month, the Computer Science web-page provides an in-depth look
at the current activities within IBM Research on a selected
research area. Our pick of the month is: Data
Management : IBM
Research has produced major contributions to the area of data
management for more than three decades. This includes E. F.
Codd's seminal work on relational algebra; the System R relational
database management system prototype (which led to IBM's DB2®);
ARIES transaction recovery and logging; Starburst extensible
database technology, and DB2 parallel database technology. Today,
we continue to explore new data management technology in the
areas of data warehousing, object-relational features, digital
libraries, multimedia content management, federated databases,
and integration of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured
data, as well as the emerging areas of e-commerce, Internet,
and mobile applications.
