List your product here if it is not database management software, but rather, a database program designed to store a particular set or sets of data ( e.g. recipes, soccer statistics, club memberships, real estate listings, hotel rooms, second-hand automobiles etc.)Application specific database software refers to database programs that have been designed to store a particular set/sets of data.
An automated analysis of structured electronic data, such as in a data warehouse, which is intended to discover previously unrecognized patterns and relationships between data items. It differs from OLAP and other forms of query-driven data analysis in that patterns are determined by the system using statistical algorithms, thereby uncovering relationships for which the user hasn't developed a query. Human analysis of the statistical patterns is then required to determine the reasons for the emerging relationships.

Description: This describes the website and should note distinguishing features found on the site without the use of hype, personal pronouns, or repetitive terms.
A "Data Warehouse" is a data structure that is optimized for distribution. It collects and stores integrated sets of historical data from multiple operational systems and feeds them to one or more data marts. It may also provide end-user access to support enterprise views of data.If there is demand, we may grow sub-categories that mirror the strategy used in the Atlas of Data Warehousing (also from TDWI) for related categories:

If you site has to do with related software and add-ons to the GoldMine product, please submit here. If you are a contact management consultancy (Act!, GoldMine, etc.), please submit to:GoldMine is a windows based contact manager. It offers powerful and flexible (somewhat!) manipulation of contact data, mailing lists and everything else expected of a good contact management program. It uses a standard .DBF 4 file format to give a very open base to allow manipulation of contact information with other programs.
Please submit only sites dealing with programming Interbase or Firebird. These may include drivers, tutorials, and information on the databases themselves.Interbase is an SQL database which Inprise Corporation released as an open-source application. Development has forked, with many developer working on Firebird which was derived from the same code.
Please submit only sites dealing with information about using or extending Microsoft Access. Sites offering Access consulting services should be submitted to Computers: Consultants: Databases. Sites about products built with Access should be submitted to the relevant category; for instance, a construction management package should be submitted to Computers: Software: Industry-Specific: Construction.Microsoft Access is a mature database product which provides excellent tools for building departmental level databases. The directory's scope includes listings of interest to Access developers as well as Access users.
Please submit only user groups with a specific focus on using or developing database applications with Microsoft SQL Server. In other words, do not submit sites that are generalized PC or software interest groups that might have an occasional meeting about SQL Server. The user group does not have to be *exclusively* focused on SQL Server; for instance, submitting a user group centered on SQL Server and Visual Basic would be fine.Sites and resources that work with Microsoft's(tm) SQL Server(tm).
Information on tools for database application development should be listed at Computers: Programming: Databases.
Commercial services for database application development should be submitted to Computers: Consultants: Databases.
Object-oriented Database Management Systems (ODBMS or OODBMS) offer persistent storage for object data, often with direct bindings to object-oriented programming languages. They distinguish themselves from relational databases (RDBMS) in the following key points:
These differences also allow ODBMS to choose more efficient strategies in other areas: Transaction mechanism can take advantage of the enhanced knowledge about the semantics of operations on the data: E.g. two "increment a by n" operations are associative and can therefore be exchanged when serializing operations; two "Read a, Write a" operations can't. Also versioning and configuration management are simpler if objects remain unsegmented. Beginning in the mid 90ties the developers of RDBMS have reacted to some of these deficiencies and introduced object-oriented concepts into their databases leading to so called Object-Relational DBMS (ORDBMS).
A major architectural distinction of ODBMS is between page servers and object servers. In a page server architecture the database server handles all data with the minimum granularity of a (memory) page. The individual objects are retrieved from these pages only on the client side. In an object server architecture the database client and server communicate on the basis of individual objects. This has major consequences on how and where transaction management, recovery and method execution are implemented. In principle, page servers should be more efficient for direct object access whereas object servers should excel if queries can be split between client- and server-side.
Please submit only sites dealing with consultancy around OLAP solutions. Also consider the groups Computers: Software: Databases: Data Mining: Consultants, and Computers: Software: Databases: Data Warehousing: Consultants if those groups are more appropriate to your activities.OLAP (OnLine Analytical Processing), a technology supporting analytical capabilities against one or more of data sources. OLAP systems usually involve analyzing data that originated in a traditional database, but was then transformed into a multi-dimensional structure for easier visualization. Relational and multi-dimensional database models usually serve very different purposes; while the former is intended for read/write, transactional, high-volume activities, the latter is suited for low-volume, complex queries that span large quantities of data at any time. Relational databases have SQL as their query language; in contrast, multi-dimensional OLAP environments have no commonly accepted language, although the proprietary MDX language created by Microsoft is gaining acceptance. Related categories include: - Data mining, which attempts to discover trends and patterns in the data; - Data warehousing, which attempts to reconcile some or all of a company's data sources into a single all-encompassing database; - Data transformation tools, which provide the means to cleanse and manipulate data while transferring it from one location to another.
If you sell OLAP software you have developed, consider the parent of this category.

Please submit only sites dealing with MultiValue/Pick databases. MultiValue/Pick databases are also described as MultiValue or multi-value (MV), Pick-compatible, Pick-like, extended relational, nested relational, post-relational, multidimensional and non-first normal form (NF² or N1NF).General information about MultiValue/Pick extended relational database management systems, including Rocket Software U2 (UniData and UniVerse), Rocket Software D3 (D3, mvBase and mvEnterprise), Zumasys jBASE, Via Systems UniVision, Revelation Software OpenInsight, Northgate Information Solutions Reality, InterSystems Caché, Ladybridge Systems OpenQM, ONgroup ONware, plus various older versions of Pick.
No need to suggest anything related to quasi-relational stuff like SQL here... unless it is in the guise of evaluations against the relational model itself.Relational technology and concepts: theory, research systems, non-SQL implementations.
This category is for sites dealing with database replication in general, and for database replication software that operates with more than one RDBMS. Software that is specific to one particular vendor''s RDBMS should probably be submitted directly to that vendor''s category.Database replication is the process of copying database records from one physical database to another, either of the same or different vendors. It generally takes the forms Master/Slave or Master/Master, and can be either eager/synchronous or lazy/asynchronous. In master/slave replication, updates and inserts are only permitted on the master copy, which is replicated to the slave(s). This is the most common and stable form. In master/master or multi-master replication, updates are permitted on any copy of the data, and changes are synchronized.
Please do not submit a link more than once. If your link does not appear in a few days, please be patient. A link does not usually belong in more than one category. Submissions to numerous inappropriate categories will be considered spam.
Sites dealing with the language itself are listed in Computers/Programming/Languages/SQL.Most relational, or table-based, databases, are controlled through SQL, Structured Query Language, sometimes pronounced "sequel". This is the category for such databases, the actual software programs that use the language.
