As more businesses realized that data, in all forms and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions, we see the continued growth of systems that support massive volume of non-relational or unstructured forms of data.  Our research work will develop efficient consolidated single data management methods to cover both relational data and NoSQL to reduce integration issues, simplify operations, and eliminate migration issues.
