Use Cases

Control IT Sprawl

In an enterprise IT environment, it’s common for hundreds or even thousands of copies of databases to be created over time. Sitting idle, consuming on-premises infrastructure, these forgotten relics can equal millions of dollars of wasted CapEx. As Big Data becomes the norm, database infrastructure management has become increasingly complicated. Relational DB Service is an obvious solution for balancing the increasing need for dynamic databases at the user's discretion while minimizing infrastructure costs.

Facilitate Self-Service Technology

The challenge for companies has long been how to provide accelerated IT on-demand. With ever increasing competition across technology and data products and services, these companies are ramping up cycles to increase velocity of market-ready product and services. Work groups need the ability to spin up database instances fast, while corporate security wants to ensure that compliance, risk, and security requirements are met. Relational DB Service enables customers to provision database environments on-demand without having to purchase new hardware or manage complex licensing models, all while providing complete access anytime.

Data-Driven Decision Management (DDDM)

Data-driven decision management (DDDM) is an approach to that utilizes big data collection as a means of gaining a competitive edge. The data-driven approach is gaining popularity within the enterprise sector as the amount of available data increases in tandem with market pressures. A study from the MIT Center for Digital Business found that organizations driven by data-based decision making had 4% higher productivity rates and 6% higher profits. The reliance on databases is key to this business model and has increased the need for improved ways to access, utilize, scale, and extract data. Companies want to better understand their customers usage of the Internet, applications, retail and services. As DDDM infiltrates into enterprises, data will power businesses more than ever, through analytics, as real production data becomes a crucial factor in gaining the competitive edge. That's where Relational DB Service comes in, offering organizations a fast, easy, reliable and secure option to spin up databases to meet today's business demands.
