Tuesday, December 12, OMG Object Database Technology Users and Vendors Roundtable

For those of you interested in standards, here is an event you may want to consider attending, the:

Object Database Technology Users and Vendors Roundtable
on Tuesday, December 12, 2007 08:00-12:00 am, part of the
OMG Technical Meeting in Burlingame, CA

The Meeting is Sponsored by the OMG Middleware and Related Services Platform Task Force (MARS)

The Committee is composed of Michael Card Char Wales Anat Ghafni and Kazimierz Subieta.

I copy here the Objective of the meeting, as written by the above Commitee:

"Gather together vendors in and users of Object Database Technology in order to learn and share their opinions on the work performed so far by the OMG Object Database Technology Working Group (ODBTWG).

Working from the responses to the Request for Information (RFI) issued in February 2006, the WG has been investigating the research done by Prof. Kazimierz Subieta of the Polish Japanese Institute for Information Technology (PJIT) in Warsaw, Poland. Prof. Subieta’s team has developed an approach called “Stack-Based Architecture (SBA)” for defining the contents of an object database, the semantics of an abstract stack-based query processor, and its associated query language (SBQL). The WG considers this work to represent the object equivalent of the relational calculus in that it provides a precisely-defined, semantically complete set of definitions of what objects are, how they are stored, and how they can be queried.

Looking ahead, we would like to consider basing any future object database standard on the SBA object model so that the language bindings, query languages, etc. that follow are well-defined, self-consistent, and complete. Doing this would address many of the criticisms leveled at the earlier ODMG standards (e.g,, ODMG 3.0).

The objective of this meeting is not only to explain how we think the principles of the SBA could be incorporated into a future object database standard but also to listen to the opinions of object database vendors and users regarding this idea. To that end, nothing will be off limits. Let this be a forum for open discussions on what future object database standards should or should not look like, open-source collaborative projects such as reference implementations or conformance test suites, trends in the object database marketplace, level of user interest in object database technology, etc. "

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
