So Long to Conventional Wisdom around Database Migration


Conventional wisdom once held that when you committed to a database management system (DBMS), you never changed it. But things are different today. In the case of an ERP system, for example, the application code has, for the most part, become independent of the DBMS—much application code runs as easily and efficiently on one DBMS as it does on another.
