S4 Agtech, which offers risk management solutions for agriculture companies, migrated to Google Cloud to save money and time, as well as, scale databases and machine learning models faster. The company uses BigQuery as its data warehouse, and has dramatically reduced storage and processing costs by 80%, while providing customers their analytics results 25% faster. S4 has also gained more time for innovation in helping its customers de-risk crop production, including updating and improving algorithms.

As Serverless pushes much of traditional server-side concerns and accidental complexity out of the picture, developers will be able to spend more time working on business logic and schema manipulations. This will reinforce current trends like full-stack developers, where one set of skills is applicable and effective at different layers of a development stack, though specialized profiles for the last mile (such as dealing with databases and datastores on one end of the extreme and graphical representation on the other) will still exist. In general, there will be more liberal collaboration between groups that were traditionally divided by different technologies and skill gaps.

If RDBMS fits your use case, SQL is another kind of standard that you can use. AWS, for example, has Serverless Aurora, which is a MySQL-compatible database that will naturally ease the migration path to your new vendor’s MySQL-compatible database.
