PostgreSQL Primary Use Case

Software Developer at a healthcare company with 1-10 employees
Currently, I'm doing a lot of source applications with Ruby on Rails, React, and mobile applications. PostgreSQL is my preferred database over MySQL. It's open-source and licenses are free, so it is excellent. The SQL queries are almost the same as MySQL. View full review »

The database is used for our customers' products. We also offer some products on our POC system, and our customer's POC systems post some data stored on PostgreSQL on the cloud. Our company's data doesn't store at PostgreSQL. We still have our system MS SQL and Oracle. View full review »

The database for the accounting systems is our primary use case for this solution. Business software is 80% of my use case in the accounting software. It's a good tool for planning. I work with financial data and the data mining aspect is very important, as I need to access the data easily. The data is the most important thing. Sometimes the software developers forget this part because they just want to save the data on the database, but they don't know how to manipulate the data. The performance of the solution is dependant on how easily and quickly you can obtain access to the data. View full review »

One use case is that we installed it and built it for a customer so that he has access to the database, and he can create whatever he would like to create on it. We have deployed it on-premises and in the cloud. View full review »

We use it as an intermediary database for the collection of a variety of data points out of our data systems. There are many departments that have different data, single points of truth. We asked them to give us different datasets, and we accumulated them in our Postgres-stored database. It's an intermediary for a machine learning model. View full review »
