There are many savings with choosing to embed a database in your client-server, web, desktop or mobile application.
Development, testing, support and sales costs go down when you don’t have to support multiple versions of multiple databases on multiple platforms. Embedding a database removes the pressure to support a prospect’s preferred database.
Using a database designed to be embedded for broad distribution and remote support amplifies the savings related to development, testing, support and sales.
Twenty years of R&D, thousands of ISVs and 10 million deployed seats prove SQL Anywhere as an embedded database leader.
