If the data you store and update is sufficiently valuable to your
enterprise, picking a database may be vital.  Transactions guarantee
every update either happens or not, and infrastructure is provided
for you to be able to backup and restore the data you've obtained.
If you don't get transaction guarantees, your applications will have
to deal with all kinds of inconsistent data (either by ignoring the
problem or guessing the best answer).
