Wow, we had a variety of responses to the April 2019 topic of “What Do YOU Use Databases For?”
I think the overall response to the question and the theme is both mixed and varied.
I have been struggling with the personal use of databases for a long time. Things I wish would have been easier but seems to just get more complicated over time. Ever heard of GDPR? Although we think we have absolute control and access to data about ourselves, we really do not. The right to be forgotten is NOT the same as having access to all of the data about ourselves in all of the systems before they disappear. Sometimes companies will delete your data about you before you ask.
