What exactly is a database mission-statement? My question was prompted after submitting an academic-assignment requiring a "mission-statement" for ERD-modeling. I've yet to encounter this requirement out in the wild as a software engineer, and I presume a mission-statement is akin to a thesis-statement, but I remain unsure after my Google-search. Any DBA professional example or guidance explaining the ideal "database mission-statement" would be appreciated- thanks!
I thought that Jeffrey Yao did a fantastic job answering this question here. I've edited it a little bit and sometimes include my own mission statement on my resume, but here's my "slightly" modified version of Jeffrey Yao. This is not specific to mariadb, but I don't think it has to be.
