Croesus called on CRIM to help them select the database management system (DBMS) that best suited their needs and plan its implementation. CRIM enabled the company to make this important transition without significant disruption to the firm’s operations. CRIM’s transparent and unbiased approach also appealed to Croesus, as the company is a strong believer in open innovation. Thus, Coesus was able to identify the DBMS that best met their needs and began implementing it. With the success of its project with CRIM, Croesus now believes more than ever in the virtues of open collaboration and innovation.
