A Database is Smart

Piet de Visser

Yes, A Database is Smart. But implementations can be dumb, panicky animals, and you know it (yes, that movie) The current buzz about SmartDB is correct: Most applications use a database, and a good application can and should utilise the capabilities of that database where possible. And there is room for Improvement.

We will define the “SmartDB” concept in a few simple lines, and we show a number of reasons, with examples of use-cases, when+why SmartDB is a good idea. On a critical note, we will recall at least 1 case where SmartDB was “mis-implemented”. But we still are thoroughly in favour of SmartDB.
