    The database management system lies at the center of any organization's business activities. It houses the data that pumps life into operations and analytics applications and ensures that it's managed and manipulated securely. But the types of database management systems, or DBMSes, are numerous -- and organizations starting the evaluation process need to first examine the data they need to process, says data management consultant Craig S. Mullins in this special edition of Business Information. Is it traditional, structured data? Or is it a vast pool full of audio and video streams, social media data and other unstructured information?

    First, Mullins surveys the database product landscape, detailing the advantages of the types of database management systems on the market, breaking them into three main categories: relational database management systems, NoSQL databases and in-memory databases.

Finally, Mullins explores the relatively new world of NoSQL database systems, known for their able handling of big data.
