MultiValue Database Technology is an Enterprise Class Database and Application Framework with a built-in development layer for 3-Tier programming that combines the power and stability of a Relational Database with the Flexibility of a NoSQL database.
What is a MultiValue Database?
MultiValue is a designation and a symbol given to the world’s most widely used and experienced business software database and framework solutions. NO matter how specialized your computer needs are, there is a MultiValue software solutions that exactly matches your computing requirements. At nearly $3 billion annually, MultiValue is one of today’s fastest growing segments of the business software solution market.
Often referred to by insiders as the computer industry’s "best kept secret", businesses and institutions frequently are hesitant to disclose the fact that they use a MultiValue solution since it is often at the core of their competitive edge. This is because MultiValue software is designed by business experts familiar with the most efficient way to handle the data processing needed by their specific industry and therefore costs less to maintain and operate than generic solutions. And because MultiValue business software is portable across all computer hardware and major operating systems.
MultiValue databases differ from other Relational and NoSQL databases and data stores due to the face it is not just a Database. MultiValue Databases include a full fledge applicaiton development environment that just happens to include a Database, Application Development languages, and a Natural Language Reporting System.
Features of a MultiValuie Database and Framework includes the following:
Flexible Data Modeling
- Non-Structured data (Schema-less/Application-based Schema)
- Structured Data (1st Normal Form, MultiValue attributed)
- Virtual Data Structures (Imposed a data structure on non-structured data)
- Mixed Data Structure (Mixing structured and non-structured data in same database)
Enterprise Class Features
- Transaction Commit/RollBack
- MultiThreaded Queries
- Persistent and Non-Persisten Connections
