Data Architecture

InBase President, Randy Weis, has developed a database architecture pattern that allows for the versioning of database objects, allowing the application to maintain and retrieve instances of an object "as of" any given point in time.  This also allows for proactive updates, retroactive updates, sandbox and hypothetical updates.  It also provides the ability to spread a business transaction across multiple physical units of work, many days, several tables and numerous rows, yet release/publish them all together in a small release transaction.  This pattern builds upon the bi-temporal pattern that he previously developed and implemented.

Randy, in collaboration with Dr. Tom Johnston of Mindful Data, Inc., another specialist in this space, are publishing a series in DM-Review, explaining the various Data History Patterns, leading up to the ultimate pattern.  Check out the series here, and give us your feedback.

Glossary for the Time and Time Again Series.

There is a lot of new terminology used in the Time and Time Again Series published in DM-Review.  So we have created a glossary of these terms.  See the Glossary Here.
