Description

A group of relational database technology pioneers from IBM, Oracle and Ingres discuss the origins and implementation of the relational model into deliverable products. The period covered was primarily from the early 1970s through 1983. They discuss the major technological problems which they had to deal with including optimization, concurrency control and query performance. There is a lengthy discussion of the various RDBMS projects in IBM and why the release of IBM’s products was delayed and opened the door for Oracle and Ingres to enter the market before IBM.
