“Multi” Model – An Ontology For Every DB on the Truck

A multi-model database allows multiple data representations to coexist in the same instance. In simpler times, that meant two models — such as document and graph — in one. In this presentation, I tackle the multi-model dream of tomorrow: a single model with data spanning many and various database services: key-value, document, relational, lake, in-memory, search service, graph, and more. Cloud providers have all these services on the truck, and it’s never been easier to get them all up and running. There’s just one complication: drawing the model! Graph to the rescue! I show, using the example of movies, a straightforward ontological approach to model the structure of data spanning database services across “the truck.”
