MultiValue’s simplicity offers efficiencies with economic advantage compared to the relational model. The complexity of the relational model results in higher development and maintenance costs with an increased risk probability of error.

MultiValue Superpowers and their Kryptonite
Many MultiValue database system developers will readily confess that accessing MultiValue data is a challenge – especially in real-time. Faced with disconnected information silos and the need to write dictionaries, all while maintaining application vendor support agreements are MultiValue shortcomings.
“You just can’t access the data” or “how to get to my MultiValue database information” is commonly heard across MultiValue database system users. The data is locked up in legacy data systems with limited support and data tools.
Extracting meaningful and timely business intelligence has been the greatest challenge. Engaging relational thinking with MultiValue data has been the greatest challenge to date. Companies have tried with in-house developers or vendor promises to unlock MultiValue data. Most have yet to find a feasible solution that doesn’t require millions and months to accomplish.
MultiValue developers can’t simply rewrite the tools or analytics, and retraining of key staff isn’t an overnight solution that’s feasible for the now. All the tooling, visualisation and ways of conducting analysis across data is predominately written by developers who understand relational databases, writing for relational models.
The simplest way to achieve the desired outcome is to take MultiValue data and put it into a format that allows accessibility by those who need it.
The benefit of doing so means you won’t have to implement costly replacement or migration programs for your core systems. There’s no business disruption and you can extend the return on your investment in your systems. This gives you the ability to process and analyse your information in different ways that you couldn’t before.
