OK. Advocacy drill. We would be looking for a case study from TSI. Robert
Bernier(I think spelling is correct) looks into case studies and can provide you
the questions/templates. Typically these cover
- the mission criticality of the system
- postgresql specific advantages
- competition postgresql sustained
- System administration headaches/lack of headaches etc
Basically how postgresql provides business value. Case studies are to make life
simpler for decision makers. Wider application domain also are very helpful. I
think this is first time I heard postgresql in QA/QC labs.
and I suggest you get a za(at)postgresql(dot)org address, if you don't have one
