    Don’t you think innovation might be brighter if the DBs remains separated, and the browser becomes the aggregators ? (http://www.cloudave.com/link/True-Aggregation-The-Browser-as-a-Platform)

    What we need is to give a sense to information in an interface, not to necessarily store them in one place.

    Agree.

    We are in the path to shift -at least for some, business apps (CRM, E-Learning, ERP, etc) in a COMMODITY.

    We already saw that this happened in IT world, for instance “web hosting services”.

    Day after day, it seems that every company needs to get their inputs as commodities and based on that, create their products, looking for low-cost inputs that impact the bottom-line.

    One of those inputs are services, like IT.

    Another question that raises is:

    What’s a Manufacturing Company doing software development? As you know, that really represents -usually, high capital investments.

    We are providing Cloud Open Source Based ERP to SMBs in Mexico, and they are getting right tools at affordable price.

    We are in the Path to Cloud Way.

    Yves,

    I’m no expert, but I believe the databases need to be combined due to inefficiencies of having them separated. According to Steve Bjorg, the lack of indexing and caching will cause the systems to be extremely slow and useless.
