Today’s applications are expected to manage a variety of structured and unstructured data, accessed by massive networks of users, devices, and business locations, or even sensors, vehicles and Internet-­-enabled goods.

Deciding which data management platform will provide the
best performance, up-­-time, and economics takes a lot of research and planning. Developers ask themselves:

  • What’s the right DBMS?
  • What’s the right hardware?
  • What’s the right database design?
  • Should we hire new DB administrators?

Many teams lack the time and expertise to research the plethora of database software, hardware, and design possibilities that are available on the market today. So they often choose to live with the status quo. As the database workload continues to grow, they lose precious development time in order to handle database crises, and eventually run the risk of losing up time, losing customers, losing data, or losing revenue and profit.
