Relational database management systems (RDBMSs) are systems of software that manage databases as structured sets of tables containing rows and columns with references to one another through key values. They include the ability to optimize storage, process transactions, perform queries, and preserve the integrity of data structures. When used with applications, they provide the beating heart of the collection of business functions supported by those applications. They vary considerably in terms of the factors that impact the total cost of running a database application, yet users seldom perform a disciplined procedure to calculate such costs. Most users choose instead to remain with a single vendor's RDBMS and never visit the question of ongoing hardware, software, and staffing fees.

All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organization’s policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.
