Data is the Cornerstone of Any Application
Data is what gives your applications meaning. In today's world of multiple clients, operating systems and platforms, and the growth of IoT devices and gadgets, data is everywhere. Managing and syncing data across all of these end-points is complicated. In addition to application architecture, like utilizing middleware, managing the data on any of these deployment targets has become a necessity. You need an embedded database to tackle these demands.
What is an Embedded Database?
Embedded databases provide access to back end data directly on the device. This is a critical component to delivering a rich end-user experience when connectivity is limited. Deploying an embedded database with your distributed application delivers the power of a full SQL database at each tier without the administration headache of an Enterprise database.
In stark contrast to the deployment model of dumb clients with data only available in a back-end, embedded databases live with your application at each deployment.
