ODBMS vs. RDBMS

Question:
Under which circumstances should I consider an object database management system (ODBMS) instead of a relational database management system (RDMBS)?

Answer:
There are some specific types of applications that are best suited for the ODBMS environment:

  • those that include very complex data that is not easily represented by a RDBMS' built-in data types
  • those that cannot be represented in tabular form (such as times-series data)
  • and those that usually involve collaborative work, to name a few.
Most of these applications are CAD, CASE, geographic information systems, and similar.
