This time, I'm not going to show you the classic business-type charts that even MS Excel can provide. The Geo Map API is a totally different chart type, engineered to allow you to display your data in ways the charts (the pie and bar) presented in the previous TechTips of this series could never achieve.
An alternative to MySQL, the no-cost IBM database solution can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud with no size constraints.
Written by Chris Smith
There are many applications today built on top of MySQL, but widespread concerns about Oracle's intentions to support the free Community Server editions persist. So far, companies that rely on the free editions of MySQL have not had cause for concern, and presumably the worst that could happen is they eventually might have to pay for something they now enjoy for free. If you are an IBM shop, however, and you are developing a new application, you might want to consider an IBM alternative to MySQL such as IBM DB2 Express-C, a free database available for on-premise and even embedded use that is now available on the cloud.
