Abstract
Office automation systems are growing both in use and in complexity. The development of a database management system for the office automation environment becomes a high priority, in order to provide an efficient and reliable way to manage the information needs of the office. Therefore, the specification of a database server for the office automation environment becomes a key area of concern. In addition to providing traditional database support, the database server must also provide new database support, so as to meet the unique and many needs of office automation environments. This paper focuses on the characterization and specification of a database server for the office automation environment. It also considers how such a database server can be effectively integrated into the office automation environment. The authors use both intuitive comparisons and queing-theory analyses to evaluate the various integration approaches. Further, they examine an experimental database system, known as the multibackend database system, as a candidate for the database server in the office automation environment. (Author)
