Two virtues (benefits) of a Relational Database Management System (RDMS) are portability and reliability.
Why these are valuable to someone interested in purchasing RDMS software and what might a database developer do to incorporate these virtues into the software they are developing?

    Well, reliability is quite obvious, if you use your system for commercial purposes you don't want to loose orders or facturation, clients list etc.

    Portability: as an application mature or if the business grow an environment change may be required, new server, new branch etc. you want to be able to export the application to a new environment, operating system without having to rewrite the application.database tutorial.

    Normalisation is the key word on what to do to implement reliability and portability.
