Product Strategy


The main trend in the computer industry in the last 20 years has been the increased interoperability between hardware and software components, resulting in heightened competition between vendors. One example of this is the different UNIX platforms now available, where because of a standardized external behavior the competitive edge is now the internal functionality. In the RDBMS arena, what has now become evident is the separation between pure RDBMS functionality and the development tools, allowing customers to choose the software environment by selecting different components.

The Mimer SQL product strategy recognizes this interoperability between the RDBMS and the different development tools. For this reason, Mimer SQL conforms to the existing RDBMS standards and offers connections to all the major development and production environments. As a result the performance and quality of both the database engine and the connections are of strategic importance to Upright Database Technology.

In contrast to most other RDBMS products, Mimer SQL is exactly the same product on all platforms (no "light" version for PCs or Linux), from a small laptop running Windows 98/ME, to a large UNIX enterprise-class server. This makes it possible to develop an application with the database stored on your laptop, and then easily move the database to a larger server without having to make any modification to the application code or database.

The following five key features characterize Mimer SQL:

which, when combined with Upright Database Technology's aggressive pricing, provides the customer with a significantly reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). By conforming to the international database standards Upright Database Technology are protecting your development investment, ensuring portability and interoperability.
