In the landscape of database management systems, data analysis systems (OLAP) and transaction processing systems (OLTP) are separately managed.
The reasons for this dichotomy are that both systems have very different functionalities, characteristics and requirements. My talk will focus on the first class of OLAP systems. The purpose of this talk is to provide a comprehensive state of the art concerning big data management in cloud environments. In this perspective, data management based on parallel database systems and data cloud (e.g. MapReduce) systems are overviewed, and compared by relying on fundamental criteria (e.g. software requirements (data independence, software reuse), high performance, scalability, elasticity, and data availability). With respect to proposed systems, we try to learn some lessons and point out: (i) the reasons for which the relevant choice of a data cloud system is very hard, and (ii)some open issues that should be tackled to ensure the viability of the next generation of large-scale data management systems for big data applications.
Abdelkader Hameurlain is full professor in Computer Science at Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France. He is a member of the Institute of Research in Computer Science of Toulouse (IRIT). His current research interests are in query processing and optimization in parallel and large-scale distributed environments, mobile databases, and database performance. Prof. Hameurlain has been the general chair of the International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA'02, DEXA'2011 and DEXA'2017). He is co-editors in Chief of the International Journal "Transactions on Large-scale Data and Knowledge Centered Systems" (LNCS, Springer). He was guest editor of three special issues of "International Journal of Computer Systems Science and Engineering on "Mobile Databases", "Data Management in Grid and P2P Systems", and "Elastic Data Management in Cloud Systems".
