Abstract:

Office automation systems are growing, both in use and in complexity. The development of a database mangement system for the office automation environment becomes a high priority, in order to provide an efficient and reliable way to manage the information needs of the office. Therefore, the specification of an ideal database sever for the office automation environment becomes a key area of concern. In addition to providing traditional support, the ideal database server must also provide new database support, in order to meet the unique and many needs of office automation environments. In this paper, we focus on the characterization and specification of an ideal database server for the office automation environment. We also consider how such an ideal database server can be effectively integrated into the office automation environment. Further, we examine an experimental database system, known as the multi-backened database system MBDS, as a candidate for the ideal database server in the office automation environment. Author
