Aviation is a cost-effective solution, offering the lowest
visible cost of ownership (VCO) among database vendors.
Organizations know that
it is critical that new technology not divert time, attention and
resources from accomplishing the goals of their business.
Assuring low cost of ownership comes down to choosing technologies that
are simply reliable, easy to implement and maintain.
Aviation’s database technology, Progress, is at the core of its
enterprise application. A recent report by the Aberdeen
Group, “Embedded Database
Cost of Ownership Study", shows that the Progress OpenEdge V9.1C
relational database management system (RDBMS) outranks Oracle 9i and
9iAS Release 1 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 as being the embedded
database with the lowest cost of ownership. The study measured
visible cost of ownership (VCO), that is costs for database licenses,
development tools, deployment, database administrators (DBA), training,
upgrades and support. The Progress OpenEdge V9.1 RDBMS over five
years, is on average, at least 40% less expensive than Microsofts’s
VCO and one-third as expensive as Oracle’s VCO.
The Progress RDBMS
is the world’s #1 embedded database, according to a Gartner Group/Dataquest study. That
means that more developers put Progress at the heart of their
applications than any other database. One reason why is that
Progress’ ease of maintenance, superior reliability, and high
availability translate to the industry’s lowest cost of
ownership. Industry analysts and customers have attested to the
fact that Progress provides the lowest cost of ownership of any
relational database, year in and year out.
