Indeed, we're hearing more and more about this fascinating new technological paradigm. ...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...

While it’s true, thanks to the black magic of Cloud (capitalization intended) with a bit of wizard...
