Bruce Momjian: Features Move into the Database as they Mature

Relational databases started as simple data containers with a relational structure. Over the decades, SQL matured into a language
that allows complex processing inside relational databases. The typical life-cycle is that once a client-side feature become
well-understood and established, it often moves into a relational database for efficiency and consistency among applications. This has happened for
data warehouse workloads (slide 30), full text search, geographic
information systems
(GIS), non-relational workloads, and JSON.
Odds are this migration will continue. Artificial intelligence might be the next area of integration.
