SAP would be a huge feather in the Ingres cap.
For the site-license customers, it probably doesn’t matter which database SAP uses. For the smaller customers, there would be a very real cost incentive for using Ingres.

One of the paths to success for Ingres is the ability for smaller s/w developers doing CRM/ERP/SMB/… or other s/w to very inexpensively base their products on a proven, reliable and supported database. One where the “money” is kept in Ingres rather than in Oracle/SqlServer/DB2 with Ingres being just a glorified web-cache.

Not to start a holy-war, but almost none of the other Open Source databases measure up when it comes to being reliable/robust/recoverable enough to keep the “money” in them.

As for the F/OSS’ing of Oracle/DB2/SqlServer, would they open enough of the RDBMS to actually be usable? Seems like an opportunity for them to redefine what is an application “option/feature” and what is an RDBMS “option/feature".

Another possibilty is that more of the smaller database players, F/OSS or not, will go the way of InnoDB. That reduces the need for SqlServer/DB2/Oracle to F/OSS their s/w.

At the beginning, The Open Source Solutions Blog was a companion to the Open Source Solutions for Business Intelligence Research Project, and book. But back in 2005, we couldn't find a publisher. As Apache Hadoop and its family of open source projects proliferated, and in many ways, took over the OSS data management and analytics world, our interests became more focused on streaming data management and analytics for IoT, the architecture for people, processes and technology required to bring value from the IoT through Sensor Analytics Ecosystems, and the maturity model organizations will need to follow to achieve SAEIoT success. OSS is very important in this world too, for DMA, API and community development.
