Why Read This Report

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) honors individuals for "major contributions of lasting importance to computing" with its annual A.M. Turing Award, sometimes referred to as "the Nobel Prize of computing." Forrester caught up with the 2014 winner, Dr. Michael Stonebraker, at our Cambridge, Massachusetts, office and interviewed him about the data and innovation issues confronting today's enterprises. Stonebraker provides the perspective of a database guru equally at home in the higher reaches of academic pursuit and in the pragmatic concerns of real-world technology adoption.
