How Data Mining and Machine Learning Evolved from Relational Data Base to Data Science

Part of the Studies in Big Data book series (SBD, volume 31)


During the last 35 years, data management principles such as physical and logical independence, declarative querying and cost-based optimization have led to profound pervasiveness of relational databases in any kind of organization. More importantly, these technical advances have enabled the first round of business intelligence applications and laid the foundation for managing and analyzing Big Data today.
