Web Databases: Everything You Need To Know In 2019
Learning as many computer skills as possible is something that everyone should strive for. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that in 2012, more than half of all jobs required some type of technical skill. This same study projects that by the year 2020, that number will reach 77%. As you can see, learning how to be technologically savvy is something that is becoming less and less optional, and more and more mandatory.
When deciding on which computer skill to learn first, I would recommend that you start with web databases. Understanding web databases is something that could get you a job very fast and is also something that almost every type of business uses. A web database’s primary function is to organize collected data and catalog it thoroughly within many parameters. In other words, a web database is an organizational tool that allows you to easily sort data that you obtain from the internet.
Even if you think you already know everything there is to know about web databases, the reality is that they are constantly changing, and it can sometimes be hard to keep up with all the changes. In this article, I will be discussing five big changes and trends that I believe will be surrounding the web database world in the year 2019.
The Rise of Agile Database Development
One trend in the database world to note is that customer experience is starting to be delivered through software applications for all businesses regardless of the industry. So long are the days in which this is confined to one specific industry. Because of this reality, businesses are starting to figure out that they must act like software companies in order to keep customers happy, respond to customer feedback, and stay ahead of their competition. One of the ways they are trying to do this is by using Agile development methodologies. In layman’s terms, what agile databases do is allow companies to respond fast to customer comments, and rapidly implement any potential changes that need to be made. Because of the fact that customer experience is trending towards being delivered through software applications for all businesses regardless of industry, this only means that agile database development will rise in the year 2019 and beyond.

Big Data Will Become Obsolete
Companies are slowly but surely moving away from big data, and I expect this trend to continue in 2019. The reason why so many companies are moving away from big data is that they prefer to spread out their data amongst a multitude of different platforms, and not just one big one. As time passes, I predict that all companies will start to feel this way.
Companies Will Continue to Rely on Multi-Model Databases
Relying on multi-model databases is a trend that has been developing over the last several years, and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. Multi-model databases ensure flexibility, reliability and consistency, which is why so many companies use them and rely on them. In 2019, companies will continue to rely on these types of databases and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
In summary, web databases are very important for the success of a business and are extremely important to be familiar with as a business owner. Technology is changing the world, and pretty soon nearly every single job is going to require some sort of technological skill. Understanding web databases is one of the best skills that you can learn in order to keep up the pace with society, and not fall behind.
