Abstract / Description:Information management systems are growing rapidly in scale and complexity,
while skilled database administrators
are becoming rarer and more expensive. Increasingly, the total cost of
ownership of information management systems is dominated by the cost of people,
rather than hardware or software costs. This economic dynamic dictates that
information systems of the future be more automated and simpler to use, with
most administration tasks transparent to the user. Autonomic, or self-managing,
systems are a promising approach to achieving the goal of systems that are
increasingly automated and easier to use. The aim of the workshop was to
provide a forum for researchers from both industry and academia to present and
discuss ideas related to self-managing database systems. SMDB 2007 was the
first event organized by the new {IEEE Computer Society Data Engineering
Workgroup on Self-Managing Database Systems} (http ://db.uwaterloo.ca/tcde−
smdb/). The workgroup, which was founded in October 2005, is intended to foster
research aimed at enabling information management systems to manage themselves
seamlessly, thereby reducing the cost of deployment and administration.
