Managing unstructured data in a relational database system is one of the least know subjects. There is a large amount of unstructured data in the real world and a relational database designed to store data in a structured format but most database administrators and architectures do not have enough knowledge to handle unstructured Data. Marcelle Kratochvil’s book, “Managing Multimedia and Unstructured Data in the Oracle Database” aims to give a solid understanding of basic concepts involving unstructured data (specially multimedia).
The book is designed for technology architects and database administrators. Kratochvil plans to write another book which will will focus on developers and storage architects.
First chapter covers key concepts, later chapters cover technical details for database administrators.
