Drawing upon the know-how of top industry experts, as well as hundreds of other sources, Strategic Database Technology is the only comprehensive guide to emerging database technologies. This single source for IS managers, database administrators, systems analysts, and strategic planners is a concise yet complete presentation of the state-of-the-art technology as well as the latest in research and development efforts.

In his eleventh book, Alan Simon, a consultant and leading author of numerous technical and career-oriented books, offers a thorough investigation of the past, present, and likely future of database technology. He teaches readers where and how to invest their time and resources. Simon reveals major trends and developments in databases and MIS that will radically change the way we create, develop, and maintain databases over the next two decades.

Noted consultant Alan Simon's 11th book explores the potential of current and emerging database technologies. Technically serious, but not technically detailed, this book is designed to give information managers and others an overview of the trends and technologies for use in the years ahead so that they can be incorporated into the manager's plans today.
