Companies of all sizes are looking for ways to make better use of their data while also reducing costs.
In many cases, that means looking for alternatives to enterprise databases such as Oracle, SQL Server and DB2 that are more cost-effective and flexible.
Those alternatives include enterprise-class open source database management systems, relational database management systems, and NoSQL solutions.
Gartner states that, “By 2018, more than 70% of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS, and 50% of existing relational DBMS instances will have been converted or will be in process.”
Pizza Hut Restaurants, UK has decided that these options are worth exploring further.
