Technical Debt in Data-Intensive Software Systems

by   Harald Foidl, et al.

The ever-increasing amount, variety as well as generation and processing speed of today's data pose a variety of new challenges for developing Data-Intensive Software Systems (DISS). As with developing other kinds of software systems, developing DISS is often done under severe pressure and strict schedules. Thus, developers of DISS often have to make technical compromises to meet business concerns. This position paper proposes a conceptual model that outlines where Technical Debt (TD) can emerge and proliferate within such data-centric systems by separating a DISS into three parts (Software Systems, Data Storage Systems and Data). Further, the paper illustrates the proliferation of Database Schema Smells as TD items within a relational database-centric software system based on two examples.
