COLUMBIA, Mo., — FairCom Corporation, one of the most trusted names in the database industry, announced today that it has accepted an invitation to join the INCITS technical committee that develops standards for SQL (structured query language) and GQL (graph query language). The technical committee is one of the InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) committees, which is the central U.S. forum dedicated to creating technology standards for the next generation of innovation.
Chief Architect Mike Bowers will serve as FairCom’s representative on the INCITS/DM32 – Data Management and Interchange committee, which develops standards for database languages and metadata. Bowers is recognized within the database industry as a leading expert, especially in the evolving area of graph and document databases.
“It is an honor for FairCom to be a part of the INCITS community,” Bowers said. “Graph database technology is set to become a driving force in the database industry. Like SQL, GQL will become the primary language for all graph databases. Further, the GQL extensions for SQL will unify graph and relational models within the same database.”
Among the members of the INCITS/DM32 committee are Oracle, Microsoft, SAP, IBM, Teradata, Neo4j, and others.
