New types of database have emerged over the last decade, aimed at answering new requirements in the Big Data era. The new databases, in additional to the Relational model, may fit to specific types of applications. Therefore, new challenges have also emerged, including the issue of which database model to select for a given application, and how to design the database based on the selected model. To the best of our knowledge, these two challenges have not been addressed by any systematic method. In this research we plan to devise a structured method for database model selection and design based on variety of factors, including data-related requirements, functional requirements, and non-functional requirements. Based on these requirements the method will recommend which database models are the most appropriate for that application and will suggest a design for the recommended models.
