May 2, 2013 Comments Off on Exploring the Database Forest article is now available
SAP asked me to write an article that summarized some of today’s most interesting database trends. Here’s what I cover in the article:
I begin by demonstrating that a ‘one-size-fits-all’ database platform isn’t a good idea given today’s complexities. Next, I describe several of the most intriguing new information management technology categories, followed by an overview of how integrated solutions such as SAP’s Real Time Data Platform can provide a logical, unified approach. Finally, I point out that despite all of the fresh breakthroughs and noteworthy new solutions, transactional databases continue to remain at the heart of the enterprise’s information processing responsibilities. This means that selecting an RDBMS will endure as a vital obligation.
