The ODBMS.ORG Portal

Launched in 2005, ODBMS.ORG was created to serve faculty and students at educational and research institutions as well as software developers in the open source community or at commercial companies.

It is designed to meet the fast-growing need for resources focusing on Big Data, Analytical data platforms, Cloud platforms, Graphs Databases, In-Memory Databases, NewSQL Databases, NoSQL databases, Object databases, Object-relational bindings, RDF Stores, Service platforms, and new approaches to concurrency control

This portal features a number of free resources such as articles, white papers, user reports, benchmarks, lecture notes, tutorials, links to software. It is complemented by listings of relevant  books and  vendors to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of available resources.

The Expert Section contains exclusive contributions from 150+ internationally recognized experts such as Merv Adrian, Chris Anderson, Roger Barga, Ken Birman, Michael L. Brodie, Mike Cavaretta, Alon Halevy, Joseph M. Hellerstein, Philippe Kahn, Mitchell Kertzman, Jay Kreps, Jonathan Reichental, Todd Walter, Michael “Monty” Widenius,

The ODBMS Industry Watch Blog is part of this portal and contains up to date Information, Trends, and Interviews with industry leaders on Big Data, Data Analytics, Data Science, New Data Stores (NoSQL, NewSQL Databases, In-Memory Databases, Graphs Data Stores) and Innovation.

The portal’s editor, Roberto V. Zicari, is Professor of Database and Information Systems at Frankfurt University. His interest in new database technologies dates back to his work at the IBM Research Center in Almaden, CA, in the mid ’80s, when he helped craft the definition of an extension of the relational data model to accommodate complex data structures. In 1989, he joined the design team of the Gip Altair project in Paris, later to become O2, one of the world’s first object database products.

All materials and downloads are free and anonymous.

ODBMS.ORG is made possible by contributions from ODBMS.ORG’s Panel of Experts, and the support of the sponsors displayed in the right margin of these pages.
