"Computer, draw a robot!" said my young cousin to the first computer he had ever seen. (Since I
had instructed it not to listen to strangers, the computer wasn't receptive to this command.) If
you're like me, your first thought would be "how silly" or "how funny"—but this is a mistake. Our

Why has relational database technology grown to become the de facto database tech-
nology since that time? A look back at previous database technology may help to
explain this phenomenon.
Database management systems were first defined in the 1960s to provide a common
organizational framework for what had been data stored in independent files. In
1964, Charles Bachman of General Electric proposed a network model with data
records linked together, forming intersecting sets of data, as shown on the left in
Figure 1-1. This work formed the basis of the CODASYL Data Base Task Group.
