In one such seminar, he taught introduction to database to an IBM development group that went on to develop one of IBM's first relational database management system products, SQL/DS. Paulraj Ponniah, PhD, a veteran IT professional, specializes in the design and implementation of database and data warehouse systems, as well as in teaching database and data warehouse courses. Frank Miller has nearly 30 years experience designing, developing, and delivering technical training materials. For 20 of those years, SQL language database management systems have been an area of special interest and expertise. During that time he has written books and other training materials that are used by various schools and professional organizations in the United States and around the world.
