In the future, the current trend to Widgets and end-user data integration will continue and user demands will increasingly call for easy access to all data at any time and using any device.
The functionality offered by cell phones or mobiles will continue, with Apple’s iPhone expected to maintain its position of leadership.
This situation is shown in the following diagram, with four very different perspectives being seen by groups :-
2) Users & Organisations
3) University Research Departments
In the future, Databases will be accessible at any time and from any location using any Device.
This diagram shows how real-time links can be provided to all Databases.
In addition, more data types, built-in compatible Data Models in the Clouds, mix-and-match selection of required Tables, with Platforms for Vertical Applications and creation of Data Marts. generation of Data and built-in resolution of the impedance mismatch between the Relational and Object approaches. Conceptually, there will be an Integrated Data Platform, with a range of superimposed Data Service Layers.
Databases will come equipped with self-correction, self-monitoring and self-tuning.
This Architecture features three Levels.
Gartner predicts that within a few years, 80% of all Enterprises will have at least some involvement in Cloud Computing.
Our thinking should therefore encompass Scenarios where some of our data will be located in the Clouds.
Data Integration and Data Quality must provide for integration with Cloud data.
This diagram shows that Data Sources and Data Quality On Demand Services can be in the Clouds.
