An interesting news item from Computer World points to an article in the ACM magazine about Microsoft wanting to standardize NoSQL – similar to SQL (Structured Query Language) and how this gained traction for relational databases.

This also leads to what a NoSQL database actually is – and is U2 a NoSQL database?

I personally believe that U2 and PICK type databases , in general, are not NoSQL.

They are DDERDBMS – Dictionary Driven Entity Relationship DataBase Management Systems.

Just rolls off the tongue…
