Database Management

Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs) continue to do the heavy lifting in data management, while newer database management systems are taking on prominent roles as well. NoSQL database systems such as Key-Value, Column Family, Graph, and Document databases, are gaining acceptance due to their ability to handle unstructured and semi-structured data. MultiValue, sometimes called the fifth NoSQL database, is also a well-established database management technology which continues to evolve to address new enterprise requirements.

"It's yours, free. Just pay shipping and handling!" claims the infomercial host. We've all seen them, the advertisements for home maintenance, gardening equipment, or even cooking products that promise the world but end up costing a lot of money.

Database administration includes responsibility for ensuring the ongoing operational functionality and efficiency of an organization's databases and the applications that access those databases.

If you are an old hand at Microsoft SQL Server, you have probably used the SQL Server Agent (i.e., SQL Agent) service and MSDB database for the last 20 years.

However, SQL Agent faces one important shortcoming: It can run on Azure VMs and on Azure SQL Managed Instances, but it is not available on Azure SQL Database. As a result, we need a substitute.
