Nuno, you're advertising ancient practices. Pythia, the oracle of Delphi and an early leader in the decision support systems was basing its predictions on SQL, which in that case was an acronym for "Said Quixotically on Laurel". The predictions were remarkably accurate. Pythia has later established Pythian, the DBA consulting company which also uses the No Data model: look ma, no data!
