Only Microsoft?

When can we expect a similar seminar on MariaDB or PostgreSQL?

You know the ones most people use.

This sounds more like a paid advert for the offering from Microsoft to me.

In my neck of the industry (financial services), you're only going to run a database on MsSQL, Oracle, or erm... Access.

Re: Only Microsoft?

But there are other readers and some may run multiple DB types. I for one in the Gas industry manage databases on PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle and Microsoft SQLServer. It just depends what I am using it for. It also doesn't mean it is any less mission critical.

Re: Only Microsoft?

Define "Most People".

"Most People" I know have never heard of MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL Sybase, DB2, Oracle or SQL Server. "Most People" only have a vague inkling what a database actually is.

IT People I know on the other hand have heard of SQL Server and Oracle. A few have heard of Sybase, DB2 and MySQL. A tiny, tiny number have heard of MariaDB. A few have heard of Big Data, MapReduce and Hadoop.

Defining "Most People" in terms of those you have regular contact with is one of the most basic analytical and statistical errors people make.
