Databases & Agility Key to Digital Transformation

By Karen A. Frenkel  |  Posted 02-27-2017 Email

Databases are vital to digital transformation, according to a new survey from NuoDB, "Benchmarking Strategic Technology Initiatives with Software Companies," and agility is also essential. As the software industry transitions from on-premises implementations to a software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach, companies are combining the best of modern infrastructure with traditional SQL capabilities and ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) properties, which are needed to support reliable transactions.  Surprisingly, software companies are less concerned about security than enterprises are. Says Jeff Boehm, chief marketing officer at NuoDB, an elastic SQL database company for cloud applications, "As our analysis shows, databases are critical for the success of [developing infrastructure to support digital transformation] and provide the flexible, scalable foundation organizations require to quickly deliver products and services." The survey asked 255 technology professionals about the cloud, containers, micro services and data center modernization.
