Where is Database Development Going Next?

Relational databases have been around for 20 years, however their development continues, with new features being added. The most prominent of these new features is support for XML, however other features continue to arrive such as the SQL OLAP extensions that help data warehousing and analytics.

At the same time other forces are active. Open Source has become a powerful force in software development. Programming languages are looking to bypass the database with persistence modules. Operating system developers want to add transactions and recoverability. Search has become an important category of its own.

In this panel we ask a diverse panel of experts to discuss recent and ongoing developments, and to tell us where they think database development is headed.
