Abstract : Database management systems have been developed mainly for commercial and business processing. As such, it generally manages formatted data, rather than information, which is less structured and comes in many forms such as text, graphics, images, voices, and signals. Beyond the capability of handling multimedia information, non-business application areas call for further requirement. Real-time processing, risk assessment, and partial answers are some of the more important requirements, especially in the military applications. In this paper, we discuss issues involved in creating such advanced database management system and propose some approaches.
