A report by the School of Computer Engineering's department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at University of Vigo, named "Report on the performance of different Database Management Systems (DBMS)" , concludes that Velneo performs better than the both database market giants.
After undergoing several speed and performance trials, the overall results from this link to the academic benchmark report reveal that Velneo is faster than SQL-Server, and that SQL Server is faster than Oracle.
All test results were measured in milliseconds. They can be seen in this microsite.
If we focus on transactional operations (new record, edit record and delete record) performed by the different database management systems, the tests conducted at the University show that Velneo finishes either first or second (usually behind SQL Server and in front of Oracle Database) in all transactional operations.
Velneo can't be compared to with products that are not CASE tools or fourth generation languages. I am not sure if products like Visual Basic, Delphi and part of the .NET philosophy can be considered fourth generation. From where I see it, CASE tools are those that really perform assisted programming functions, not simply managing windows, events and passing messages or communication with external SGBDs. Velneo, if compared to the products above, is a technological revolution in the world of software development because the assisted programming concept is taken to the extreme limit.
With Visual Basic the whole thing is code and its uneatable syntax can get you into trouble. With Velneo, if you develop properly, rarely are you going to have to write on single code line (unless you have to perform very specific and critical tasks that are a bit off the Velneo field -business and information management solutions).
