Research Event: Tuesday 14 June 2011
This presentation provides an insight into my research field of interest which is focused upon the complex interactions of database systems. It draws together details from the current technical and non technical field and the findings from conducting a literature review. There is lack of research in the specific field of study which crosses multiple field boundaries.
Relational database systems have expanded to include large volumes of structured and unstructured data; there has been a rapid change in usage, demand for data, information and knowledge. Database administrators need to manage technical components to respond to requirements with influence from many areas including cultural, economic, political etc. This led to research questions into a system of interest which could benefit the industry as a whole.
The sequential mixed methods design is to be used to investigate how the interaction of complex systems affects the management of database systems. An aim of this research is to gain an understanding of how improvement and innovation could emerge from database management systems.
