Database technologies are often overlooked forgotten about because they typically do not take that much manipulation at an administrative layer…legacy systems are just expected to work and IT personnel are expected to keep them working. With data changing so rapidly and databases being so heavily relied upon, it would make more sense to spend more time and effort to ensure the health and version is up to date.

There are plenty of reasons to upgrade your database:

  • A platform for rapid reporting and analytics
  • Increased scalability and availability
  • Support for new data sources and types
  • Robust security
  • Lower cost of ownership
  • More stability
  • Better reporting results
