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 a massive volume of non-relational or unstructured forms of data. Our research focus is to develop new theories and algorithms of a novel multi-model database management system to manage both well-structured data and NoSQL data. Our approach will reduce integration issues, simplify operations, and eliminate migration issues between relational and NoSQL data.
