Relational database technology first appeared almost a half-century ago and for decades the database market appeared to be consolidating around the use of relational databases for most types of workloads, even if it wasn’t very well suited to some of these workloads. More recently, though, as the big data market has exploded organizations have become less reliant on relational databases and appear more willing to use a variety of other database technologies including NoSQL databases to support their data processing needs.
Companies do a lot of planning: They plan sales, determine what products and services they will offer, decide what they will charge and what these will cost. They plan the headcount they’ll need to run the business and how to organize distribution and their supply chain. They also produce a budget, which is a financial plan.
The pace of business today requires organizations to constantly examine how to make their people and processes more effective. One proven approach to improving business performance is to harness the insights and intelligence that analytics can provide to continuously assess, identify and address new opportunities and resolve issues and potential barriers. This is the essence of a foundation of digital innovation in business.
