I recently conducted an unscientific poll of my clients and contacts, asking them one simple question: What database issue are you being challenged with right now?
I received over 120 responses to this question. Interestingly, the answers fell almost evenly into five broad categories:
- Reporting/querying – 26%
- Data integrity – 20%
- Web Integration – 20%
- Integration of multiple data sources – 17%
- Training/documentation – 16%
I wrote two articles for Association Trends on my reactions to these results, the first of which you can read here (the second is yet to be published).
