The Seattle Report on Data Research

I read with interest The Seattle Report on Data Research which presents the state of affairs for database systems. There are many interesting points raised about the diversity of the field and the challenges that are now apparent. These being:

  • Data Science having an emerging importance, 
  • HTAP (hybrid  transaction (OLTP) analytical processing (OLAP) creating real time operations to drive intelligent processing and reach, 
  • ethical responsibilities, 
  • scalable shareable data discovery 

This leads to the field having a bit of an identity crisis. We need to think about the end to end solutions that will provide insights whilst considering things such as data quality and data providence.

The question that we must all ask ourselves is, what is the vision for the future where data is all around us.
