Abstract

Human societies have always strived to create databases because data provides access to knowledge. The advent of digital computers clearly represents a big leap forward in creating a higher level of repository for the knowledge of our contemporary civilization. Over the past four decades much energy has been spent in developing methodology for efficiently creating and managing computer databases. Many of the early databases, however, were developed to meet specific needs and generally benefited a certain class of user. However, advances in telecommunications technology has radically altered the traditional relationship between database creators and its users. The future of databases points toward mass utilization which will be facilitated by the so-called ‘digital revolution’ in the communications industry. A trend is already emerging that will affect their creation, distribution and management.
