After many hours of research, and some excellent conversations with my companies project managers and database focals, I have found that we, The Boeing Company, utilize several different database management systems in order to meet the many requirements we have in the area of data management. In this memo I will discuss many of the database solutions we use without giving away any proprietary company information.

This is another relational database management product standard that is currently utilized by Boeing. This system is used in our UNIX environment to support our large and complex decision support applications. The system has been deployed at Boeing since 1987. and is used especially for extensively by IT to research and evaluate the benchmarked data of various sized databases. Some of our large Decision Support Systems consist of: operational data stores,...
