the discussion was very broad, hence the comment. any IT department serious about implementing browser based applications, intranets and extranets will want a sql server driven architecture (or OODB) for scalability with a powerful robust tool such as ColdFusion or InterDev. This is ofcourse not to say that an OSS solution such as PHP, MySQL or even a PERL, CGI, flat file or Rdb solution couldn't be implemented.

As for resources, the same applies. If your database driven web site is going to be supportable and scalable then you better have adequate support and knowledge in-house regardless if you outsource or not. You're going to spend a substantial amount of time & money regardless of the effort if you want to do it right.

There's no getting around the technology discipline levels. You're going to require a staff who can support your apps and that means money & technology training.

To pgravelle:

InterDev is probably an uncommon solution.  By far, Perl and CGI solutions provide the most robust and user-supported platform for internet databases.


Boy, that was a REALLY brief review of database solutions.  As pgravelle noted, there are many options that were not mentioned.  The gist, however, is clear: spend a lot of money or spend a lot of time.  I would think that outsourcing would provide the best solution, since it is difficult to be efficient in several disciplines these days.
