Librarian Michael :

Hello, Thank you for using this service. I wish to introduce myself. I am a Research Librarian with 20+ years of experience.


 


Would be happy to help in your question on database vendors. Library database vendors are many so I would need to know a little more about what type of research you want to do and then I can research the top companies in the market as well as issues to work with.


 


Please advise me of your particular needs and I can then work on your question.

Customer:

Hello Michael,


 

Customer:

Sorry about that I hit the enter button by mistake. The question is in reference to a class I am taking. BIS/220 INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER APPLICATION AND SYSTEMS, will this help?


 

Librarian Michael :

More than happy to help. Will need a little more from you on what type of business you would be looking at for purchasing a database for an organization. A few months ago I was at the library conference with many vendors pushing their products so will need to know what business you would want to target.

Librarian Michael :

When you say popular databases, are you looking at size of the company or usage of patrons? Popular is varied by almost all librarians.

Librarian Michael :

The market research vendor IDC list for top database vendor for 2011:

Customer:

Looking for usage of patrons. Like Sybase which was brought by SAP and another example is Oracle.


 

Librarian Michael :
