  3. 3. AMAZON.COM EVOLUTION 3 Amazon.com® Database Uses According to Rick Whiting’s InformationWeek: Amazon.com Database To Cut Lag Time article (2002), Using Excelon Corp.'s ObjectStore database as a cache-management system, Amazon cut update time for the web pages from eight hours to two minutes (para. 2). Amazon uses this specialize commercial object database: ObjectStore, to handle thirdparty retailers pricing and inventory updates upon the marketplace web pages within Amazon’s web servers. Additionally, different platforms can access the database providing central configuration of all caches allowing users to change cache behavior. For administration purposes, optimization, system cache analysis, and central monitoring of all caches became available. The Cache Management System provides cache sharing between all nodes, and cache objects cluster-wide invalidation. Auditability, constant changing landscapes, data security, data recovery, decentralized data management, increasing data volumes, inefficient use of resources, lack of trained people, limits on scalability, and low leverage of data assets are possible data management issues. Amazon.com® Data, Information, and Knowledge Relationship Amazon.com’s data collection of facts, measurements, and statistics derives from customer’s contact information, financial history, and shopping history becoming organized information for processing. The organize information becomes knowledge for action. Usable data Amazon.com uses to cater accurately to customer’s needs and wants based on customer’s browsing and shopping history. The knowledge put into action by Amazon immediately affects customers shopping experience through convenience, tracking, and saved history.
