A Short Summary of the Last Decades of Data Management

Data systems have come a long way from the monolithic vendor hell of the 90s. Data is no longer held hostage with arbitrary licensing models. Open Source engines, open data formats, and huge cloud computing resources have fundamentally changed how we think about data. In the same time, a large variety of specialized systems have popped up, from systems supporting semi-structured data to the hottest and latest vector databases.

In my talk, I will try to summarize the most important trends, including those that did not make it in the end. I will take attendees on a journey through this trillion dollar industry and its ever-continuing search for new and exciting ways to manage data.
