See enclosed notes (Some written nearly 5 1/2 years ago).
Most of the thoughts/ views stated are valid, even today,
We just cannot afford an army of D/E/ operators to create a CORPORATE DATABASE.
It is for cheaper to BUY such databases from MEGHA CORPO/ VIPUL ZAVERI/ PUNIT SHAH/ Ranjeet Gupta etc. etc. for whom, this is their CORE business. It is not our core !
How soon we can buy and benefit from such "bought - out" databases, depends upon, how fast you / Rajeev can figure - out a software solution to "Merge" all these different / duplicate databases into ONE/ COMMON, data structure which all of us can "access" / use from our desktops.
