Making Database Systems Easier to Use
Add to Google Calendar
In this talk, I will examine why database systems today are so difficult to
use and identify a set of five pain points. I will describe the work we have
been doing in my research group on database usability, and propose a research
agenda to address these pain points.
The central issue is one of understanding where structure in the data is
crucial, where it is unnecessary, and how to map between database structures
and user mental models.
