Using a Relational System on Wall Street: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, and the Ideal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Developers of a Wall Street financial application were able to exploit a relational DBMS to advantage for some data management tasks 1989. For others, the relational system was not helpful (the bad), or could be pressed into service only by means of major or minor contortions (the ugly). The authors identify database constructs that would have simplified developing the application (the ideal).
