Many businesses choose to work agile in order to grow quickly and sustainably. In this way a company can quickly adapt to changing situations. And that is why Database as a Service, or DBaaS, is an ideal addition to this way of working.
Agile enables organizations to deal with continuous change. It enables them to develop in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, complex, and ambiguous. Businesses must become as adaptable as the rapidly changing environment in which they operate.
DBaaS is as flexible as it can get
DBaaS is essentially a flexible infrastructure solution that supports a flexible business structure: you can buy or cancel it at any time, and you are not tied to expensive equipment that must be maintained yourself. It's also a practical solution, especially in areas where finding open source and cloud database experts is difficult or costly.
Work hard, act smarter with DBaaS
Agile is about uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. It is not a matter of doing more work in less time, but of adding more value with less effort. For this, DBaaS is an excellent solution. For example, teams can outsource all preconditions that come with their own database to the provider. This allows them to refocus on their primary tasks.
100% in control with DBaaS
A universal characteristic of agile organizations is the law of the small self-managing team. The work is basically done in small independent multi-disciplinary teams that work in short cycles on relatively small tasks and receive continuous feedback from the final customer or end-user. If you would have and maintain your database yourself, this often costs time and extra manpower. Someone must be able to maintain and secure the machines. With DBaaS, you outsource that process and you can therefore keep teams smaller.
The power of DBaaS during pipeline staging
DBaaS provides a significant advantage during the pipeline stages of app development work. Ideally, developers write code once and then use it everywhere. In order to write that code, they need access to their own database. Back in ‘the old days’, they would have to install and configure database software before they could use it.
With DBaaS, you can simply choose what you need and can get started right away. And are you done? Then you can throw everything away and move on to your next task.
